After a long and painful weekend with no games, football returns on Tuesday with the second fixture set of this international break. There aren't quite as many high-quality matches as there were on Friday, but there is one massive marquee fixture in UEFA World Cup qualifying.
In Group I, France travels to Spain to take on the defending World Cup and European champions. Les Bleus were off on Friday and put out an experimental team in a 1-0 friendly loss to Japan, while Spain easily dispatched of Belarus on the road with a 4-0 victory. Didier Deschamps doesn't seem to know what his best XI is quite yet, which is a bit of a problem. Then again, no matter who he picks, they're going to have to have a top-notch match collectively to have any chance of getting a result.
In Group A, perhaps the deepest and toughest to predict in qualifying, Croatia and Serbia are both in need of points to prove that they can keep pace with Belgium, who are heavy favorites at home against Scotland. Elsewhere, Italy and Germany face fairly difficult home matches against Denmark and Sweden respectably, while the Netherlands have to take a trip away to Romania and England head to Poland.
