Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Spain could line up for their Euro 2020 clash with Slovakia on Wednesday.

Spain manager Luis Enrique has midfield lynchpin Sergio Busquets fit and raring to go for his side's final group game of Euro 2020 against Slovakia on Wednesday evening.

The 32-year-old missed the first two games of the tournament after returning a positive coronavirus test, but he has since participated in full training with the squad and ought to be in contention to feature here.

It would not be a surprise to see Busquets displace Rodri in the engine room after the Manchester City star picked up a booking in the recent draw with Poland, while Koke and teenage starlet Pedri should keep their places in the middle.

Aymeric Laporte was out-muscled and out-jumped by Robert Lewandowski for Poland's equaliser against La Roja but is expected to continue alongside Pau Torres here, while the versatile Marcos Llorente should continue at right-back.

Dani Olmo did not enjoy the most fruitful of evenings against Poland but will hope to keep his place on the left over Mikel Oyarzabal, while Luis Enrique has a decision to make over Gerard Moreno following his mixed evening on matchday two.

The Villarreal man assisted Alvaro Morata's opener - which was ultimately given following a VAR review - before striking the post with a penalty, but with five goals and four assists for the national team since his debut in October 2019, he will be eyeing a second chance as Ferran Torres warms the bench.

Spain possible starting lineup: Simon; Llorente, P.Torres, Laporte, Alba; Busquets, Koke, Pedri; Moreno, Morata, Olmo
