A strong showing in the Nations League Final Four last month will count for little if La Roja fail to secure top spot in the group, and it could be a nervy night in the Greek capital for the visitors.
Greece are not known for their attacking football but have been finding the back of the net regularly, scoring in nine of their last 10 games, including against the likes of Belgium, Switzerland, and Spain themselves.
Spain have kept just two clean sheets in their last eight games and, while they are clear favourites for the win, there could be some interest in opposing the visitors to keep a clean sheet.
