La Roja saw their five-match unbeaten run in the UEFA Euro finals come to an end when they lost to eventual champions Italy in their last game at the 2020 edition. 
On the other hand, Croatia emerged as 2-1 winners over Portugal on 8 June and they are undefeated in their last six games across all competitions.
Kockasti's two-match unbeaten run in the UEFA Euro finals came to an end when they lost to Spain in their last match at the 2020 edition.
Team News 
Spain will be without the services of a special midfielder, Gavi as the FC Barcelona star is still nursing a long-term knee injury.
 However, Croatia have been boosted by the availability of Ivan Perisic who has recovered from a long-term injury to make the UEFA Euro 2024 squad.
"We have Croatia to start with, we already know the difficulties they caused us in the Nations League," Spain head coach Luis de la Fuente said about their Group B rivals.
"The second match is against Italy, the current champions and they will turn up giving it their all to be champions. And then Albania, who finished top of their group. 
"They have had a very good qualifying campaign. The group forces us not to get ahead of ourselves and forget about who we might play in later rounds, we can't look beyond these three matches".
Spain and Croatia have met 10 times across all competitions. La Roja have won six games compared to the Kockasti's three wins while one match ended in a draw.
The last meeting between the two teams ended in a 0-0 draw and Spain won 5-4 on penalties in the UEFA Nations League on 18 June 2023.
