Starting XI: Spain V Chile

2014 FIFA World Cup

Group B

Teams: Spain V Chile

Date: 18 June 2014

Venue: Maracana - Estadio Jornalista Mário Filho

Spain will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing start to the 2014 FIFA World Cup when they take on Chile in their second Group B match at the Maracana on Wednesday.

The match is scheduled to start at 16h00 local time in Rio De Janeiro, which is 21h00 South African time.

The defending champions had the worst possible start to the tournament when they lost 5-1 to the Netherlands in their opening game.

Spain were outclassed in every aspect of the game with their defence torn to shreds at time.

Chile, on the other hand, were impressive in their 3-1 win over Australia in their opening group game.

Alexis Sanchez, Jorge Valdivia and Jean Beausejour scored the goals for Chile and will be jpoing to find the back of the net against Spain.

Spain and Chile have met on ten occasions with the European team having won eight times while two matches have ended in draws.

Here is how they line-up:

Spain XI: Casillas, Azpilicueta, Javi Martínez, Ramos, Alba, Busquets, Xabi Alonso, Iniesta, Pedro, Diego Costa & Silva 

Chile XI: Bravo; Jara, Silva, Medel; Mena, Aránguiz, Díaz, Isla, Vidal; Vargas, Alexis Sánchez
