Spain poised to make it six in a row

Spain will look to make it six wins from six in Group I as the world and European champions take on Liechtenstein in what is only their second senior international in Logrono.

Spain will look to make it six wins from six in UEFA EURO 2012 Group I as the world and European champions take on Liechtenstein in what is only their second senior international fixture in Logrono.

• Vicente del Bosque's team kicked off their Group I campaign with a 4-0 win in Liechtenstein on 3 September last year, thanks to goals from David Villa, David Silva and a double from Fernando Torres.

• Spain's record in five previous games against Liechtenstein reads W5 D0 L0 (W2 D0 L0 at home).

• Liechtenstein have yet to register a goal against Spain, with the aggregate scoreline over the course of their meetings – qualifiers for the 2002 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2008 as well as UEFA EURO 2012 – a comprehensive 17-0.

• Liechtenstein have only once gone a whole half without conceding against the Spanish, holding firm for the final 76 minutes of a 2-0 loss in Vaduz on 6 June 2007.

• Spain have not lost in 21 UEFA European Championship games since a 3-2 defeat by Northern Ireland in a UEFA EURO 2008 qualifier on 6 September 2006, five years to the day before this match kicks off.

• Spain's only previous game at Logrono's Las Gaunas Stadium was a 0-0 friendly draw with Paraguay on 16 October 2002.
