Big question is how will Spain play a match which is meaningless for them?
Will they give it away ? Do we have any reliable data who Spain played in the past in meaningless games?

They won't want to loose. They are 100% right now no? If I'd be Spain I would want to continue that plus go out with a bang. Ukraine is strong so it's also a good test for the euro next summer.

there is one other option though. if Latvia loses against Kazakhstan and Turkey beats Iceland, then the Törökök are best 3rd.

hajrá Lettország!

hajrá Ízland!

hajrá Spanyolország!

Latvia won't lose, they have a much better team than the Kazakhs'.

I'm thinking the second squad of Spain will want to prove what they're capable of to their coach.

Without Jesus, a hopeless end. With him, an endless hope.

Yeah this is my thinking too. This is their predicted XI: De Gea - Gaspar,Etxeita, Natcho, Azpilicueta - San José, Thiago, Mata, Isco - Nolito, Alcácer

Still stronger than Ukraine plus they have players who need to show they're good enough: Thiago, Mata, Isco, Nolito, Alcacer

Permutations from UEFA for reference:

While eight of the nine teams finishing third in their UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying groups will enter Sunday's play-off draw, the other will be assured of an automatic place in France.

Joining the hosts and the top two in each group will be the third-placed team with the best record against the nations first, second, fourth and fifth in their section. UEFA.com explains which teams are in contention.

Groups which could provide the best third-placed teams are F, C and A:

Group F: finished Sunday
• Hungary have finished their campaign and are the best third-placed team from the three completed groups.

Record: Pd8 W4 D3 L1 F8 A5 Pts15

Group C: finishes Monday
• If Ukraine defeat Spain and Slovakia beat Luxembourg, Ukraine will finish third behind Slovakia on head-to-head record. However, Ukraine will have 16 points (removing matches against whichever side finishes sixth out of Luxembourg and FYR Macedonia) and will move ahead of Hungary in the reckoning.

• If Ukraine win, Slovakia draw and FYR Macedonia beat Belarus to move into fifth place, Slovakia will end in third and have 16 points not counting results against Luxembourg, who will finish bottom. However, if FYR Macedonia do not win, they would finish bottom, and Slovakia would have only 14 points against the top five and would go into the play-offs with Hungary remaining in pole position.

Group A: finishes Tuesday
• If Turkey beat Iceland, they would confirm third place, but to have a chance of avoiding the play-offs they would need Kazakhstan to also defeat Latvia to pip them to fifth position. In that instance, Turkey would have 16 points against the top five in their group, and would have a better record than Hungary.

• Should either Ukraine or Slovakia have overtaken Hungary on Monday, the best third-placed team would be decided on goal difference between Turkey and the hopefuls from Group C (again only counting results against the top five in their group).

Other groups
The third-placed teams in all other sections will definitely face the play-offs, with Denmark and the Republic of Ireland confirmed after their groups finished on Sunday.

You've never heard of Isco, Thiago, Paco Alcacer, Azpilicueta (aka 'Dave'), and De Gea?

The squad



Nolito is the only really relatively 'obscure' player (and perhaps Etxeita and Gaspar), plays for Celta Vigo who have been doing awesome this season. Second top scorer in the league with 5 goals.

I'm sure you guys got this, at least this time you have Spain to rely on p

Nolito is the best by far. Tremendous player.

LOL

about Thiago, he's born in Italy to Brazilian parents, playing for Spain since joined Barca at an early age, and now plays in Germany
