This is the fourth time Switzerland and Spain have gone head-to-head at a major football tournament
The rivals having faced each other in three World Cups in 1966, 1994 and 2010.
And while Switzerland were the 1-0 victors in a World Cup group stage match in South Africa 11 years ago, Spain have lost just ONE of the previous 22 clashes between the sides.
The two most recent games between the teams were Uefa Nations League duels in October and November 2020.
And a Mikel Oyarzabal goal helped Enrique’s aces seal a 1-0 win in the first encounter and with the Swiss picking up a draw in the second.
Both teams had a mixed start to this year’s Euros with Petkovic’s players finishing third in their group and Spain qualifying in second place.
However Enrique’s side have seen an upturn in their form in attack with the team scoring twice in extra time to beat Croatia 5-3 in a last-16 eight-goal thriller.
Real Sociedad’s Oyarzabal, 24, was among the players who found the net against Luka Modric and his team-mates.
And the game saw a resilient Alvaro Morata, 28, bag his second goal of the tournament after coming in for a barracking from some supporters.
Meanwhile Switzerland found the net three times in their previous two Euros games.
They defeated the 2018 World Cup champs 5-4 on penalties after an extra time 3-3 draw.
