Spain will want to seal their place in Euro 2016 with a win over Luxembourg on Friday. A victory in Logrono against the tiny country will be enough for the defending European champions to ensure they will be a part of the finals in France next year.

Having beaten Luxembourg comfortably in the reverse fixture, there looks like being only one result in this one, even if Spain go into the match beset by injuries.

"We are the defending champions and it's good that there is a sense of optimism amongst the public," Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque, still trying to get his team out of that got-knocked-out-of-the-World-Cup-early mire, said.

"This qualifying stage has been very difficult. Even so, we are in a good position to book our place at France 2016."

With Spain's Euro qualification ending with matches against Luxembourg and Ukraine, Del Bosque admitted he will make full use of his squad.

"I'll be using the majority of the squad during the games against Luxembourg and Ukraine," Del Bosque added. "I'd like to take a look at a few of the others.

"Some changes I'll be making for the health of the players. Because they have a heavy schedule with their clubs and we'd also like to look at the qualities of some of the lesser-known players."

Usually the underdogs, going into a match, always say they have a chance, however minute, of causing an upset. However, the Luxembourg coach Luc Holtz has no such hopes, knowing full well there really is likely to be only one result on Friday.

"We've got no chance," Holtz was quoted as saying by AS. "It's going to be very difficult, because in front of us will be the side who are experts at possession and circulating the ball -- they're the best in the world at it.

"All we can do is defend as best as we can, and do a lot of running without the ball - something no player likes doing.

"We are up against a top level side and we have to take this game as a lesson to learn from. Even With their injury problems, we don't have any options of beating Spain.

"They will just replace absentees with their players who are just as good. [However], we're in good form and we have nothing to lose."
