Spain have also never lost at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in Seville. They've won 19 matches there and drawn five.
Ukraine will go into this game full of confidence having won their last three qualifiers without conceding a goal. Two of those victories came away from home beating Belarus 1-0 and Luxembourg 3-0.
Spain are unbeaten in 29 home games in competitive competition. They've won 25 of those since their 1-0 defeat to Greece in a Euro 2004 qualifier in June 2003. The omens look good for Spain tonight.
