Vallejo returns to the starting XI as Spain U-21s welcome Estonia

Spain can almost qualify for the Euro Championship if they can get a win against Estonia on Tuesday night with Jesus Vallejo set to return to the line-up.


Spain can as good as seal qualification on Tuesday when they played Estonia in Group 2 of the Euro quailifers. Albert Celades' side did themselves a massive favour when they beat Northern Ireland in their last game as they opened up a four point lead at the top of the group.

Jesus Vallejo, who did not play in that game, should return to the line-up on Tuesday, with Nuñez out due to an accumulation of yellow cards. Celades will likely revert back to a 4-3-3 after conceding three in that 5-3 win whilst playing a 3-4-3 system. 

Despite being bottom of the group with just one point, Estonia made it difficult for Spain in their first game with La Rojita landing a 0-1 win. On Tuesday, the visiting side for will sit deep and hope for the best that Celades side draw a blank.

Spain will be hoping to take advantage of two things tonight: The first one being the expected attendance at El Toralín and the very good moment that Borja Mayoral finds himself in after scoring a hat-trick in the last game. Those two things along with the quality of Dani Ceballos, Mikel Merino and Carlos Soler are considered enough to overcome Estonia on Tuesday night.
