Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas should retake his place in goal for the World Cup qualifier with Georgia. Casillas started the game against Saudi Arabia from the bench while Victor Valdes got 70-minutes worth of the game.
Casillas has been in fairly good form for Real this season, but there is certainly more to come from him. As the captain of the national side, it's always likely he'll be preferred to start the competitive games.
It was really pleasing to see Juanfran start the game against Saudi Arabia. The Atletico Madrid full-back has been excellent so far this season for Diego Simeone's side, and his attacking combination with Arda Turan on the right flank has been really promising.
Maybe he needed the big-club backing of Atletico to help force his way into the Spanish national side. And now with Sergio Ramos seemingly fixed to the centre-back role, there is sure to be a good level of competition between Juanfran and Alvaro Arbeloa.
Sergio Ramos is certain to figure at centre-back against Georgia following half the night off in Spain's last outing. He replaced Gerard Pique midway through as the partner for Raul Albiol and looked confident in his game.
His playing style with Real Madrid lends itself to a good level of understanding with the midfielders in the Spanish setup. He's quick, strong and will cause problems for onrushing forwards—although the threat is likely to be minimal in this World Cup Qualifier.
Gerard Pique was solid in the last game against Saudi Arabia. Coincidentally, so was Raul Albiol, but the Real Madrid defender's lack of games means he's unlikely to feature ahead of either Pique or Ramos in competitive action.
Pique and Ramos have forged an excellent partnership at the heart of Spain's defence. The Barcelona-Real Madrid rivalry has been put on hold each time their national team has called, and this will be a solid foundation for many years to come.
Malaga's Nacho Monreal featured at left-back for Spain against Saudi Arabia, but Jordi Alba is likely to retake his place as the first-choice full-back for the national side.
Alba has looked comfortable so far this season in his efforts to adjust to life at Barcelona. But the former Valencia attacker was notably outstanding for Spain during this past summer's European Championship. His link-up play with Andres Iniesta was fantastic to see and his goal in the final was a good showcase of his attacking worth.
