Spain vs. Chile: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and Preview
Chile will be looking for its first-ever win over Spain when the two sides clash in an international friendly in Geneva on Tuesday.
The last time these two met came in 2011. Chile had Spain on the ropes, but the Spaniards battled from two back to earn a 3-2 win.
Chile will be flying high for this match. The South Americans have won five of their last six matches. Their last time in action, the Chileans pasted Venezuela, 3-0.
Meanwhile, Spain continues to show the top form that has made them the world's No. 1 team. The Spaniards suffered a 3-0 loss to Brazil in the final of the Confederations Cup at the end of June, but they've won both matches they've played since.
In fact, La Roja has won all of their last 11 friendlies.
This will be a nice test for two hot and talented teams.

Top Storyline: Can Spain overcome injuries?
Spain is not going to be at full strength for this match. Real Madrid midfielder Isco has withdrawn due to injury. Also, Manchester City attacking midfielder David Silva left camp with a thigh injury. Per Fox Sports:
These key midfield losses are a lot for any squad to handle. However, Vicente del Bosque hasn't needed either player in Spain's World Cup qualifying bid and should be just fine without them for this match. Del Bosque lacked enough concern to not even bother calling anyone up to replace them.
Chile has been sound and explosive in their recent run of success. This is a squad that has tallied 12 goals in its last three matches, and it's going against a thin La Roja.
Spain is too talented and experienced for me to predict a loss. While the possession-based offense will not be at full strength with the midfield injuries, Spain will still manage to victimize a suspect back line of Chile
Spain 3, Chile 1
