Spain's shock 2-1 home defeat to Switzerland on Saturday leaves La Roja needing to beat Portugal away on Tuesday to progress to the semi-finals of the Nations League.

Manchester City's Akanji starred with a goal, an assist, and a rock-solid defensive performance on a sorry evening for the hosts.

 Spain's last home defeat came back in October 2018 when they were beaten 3-2 by England
