Match of the Day Live

Spain v Scotland

About this programme

Spain v Scotland (Kick-off 7.45pm). Gary Lineker presents coverage of the final Euro 2012 Group I qualifying match for both teams at the Estadio Jose Rico Perez in Alicante. Just three days after a tricky away trip to Liechtenstein that saw them claim the three points they needed, things do not get any easier for Craig Levein's men as they travel to face the reigning World and European champions, who are assured of their place in next summer's tournament in Poland and Ukraine. That win in Liechtenstein was the first the Scots have managed on their travels in this qualifying campaign, whereas Spain have won all three of their home ties. However, Levein has instructed his men to go for the upset by claiming their first victory over the Spaniards since 1984, despite a point possibly being enough for them to reach the play-offs. Commentary by Guy Mowbray and Mark Lawrenson.
