Spain takes on Sweden in a winner-take-all match in Seville on Sunday for a spot in next year's World Cup.

The two teams are separated by one point at the top of their qualification group after seven games.

Spain simply needs a draw to finish first in Group B and qualify for the World Cup for the 12th straight year, while Sweden must win at La Cartuja Stadium to overtake the hosts.

Only the group winners will be guaranteed a spot in the 2022 tournament in Qatar. To determine the final three European slots, the second-place finisher will compete in a playoff with the nine other runners-up and two group winners from the UEFA Nations League.
