Spain vs. Chile: Preview and TV schedule

USA TODAY Sports

Thanks to being in one of the smaller UEFA World Cup qualifying group, Spain has an open date to travel to Switzerland to bank a little more money.

Spain took control of their World Cup qualifying group on Friday with their win over Finland, but because Group I is unbalanced, the current world champions don't have a second qualifier and instead travel to face Chile in a friendly in Switzerland.

Chile have won five our of their last six matches but have never managed to defeat Spain in five meetings. The last time the two team's met -- also a friendly in Switzerland -- Cesc Fábregas' stoppage time goal gave La Roja a 3-2 win. Spain won the last competitive match 2-1 in the group stages of the 2010 World Cup.

Isco has left the national team as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

Match Date/Time: Tuesday, 8 p.m. local, 2 p.m. ET

Venue: Stade de Genève, Geneva, Switzerland

TV: ESPN Deportes (U.S.), TeleCinco Espana (Spain).

Online: ESPN3 (U.S.)
