Cesc Fabregas set to start instead of Fernando Torres for Spain, Thomas Muller suspended for Germany

Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque looks to have finally lost patience with misfiring striker Fernadno Torres, who is yet to score in South Africa and may opt to play Cesc Fabregas ina 4-5-1 formation against Germany tonight.

David Villa, who has scored five goals in five matches at the World Cup, will play as the lone forward, supported by Fabregas and Andres Iniesta.

Xavi, Xabi Alonso and Sergio Busquets will form the base of the Spanish midfield, with Joan Capdevilla and Sergio Ramos providing the width from the full-back positions.

Germany will be without Bayern Munich youngster Thomas Muller, who is suspended after picking up a booking in the quarter final win over Argentina.

He will be replaced by either Piotr Trochowski, Holger Badstuber or fit again forward Cacau, in what will be the only change made by German manager Joachim Low.

Expected Starting Teams

Spain: Casillas - Capdevilla, Puyol, Pique, Ramos – Busquets, Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas – Villa

Germany: Neuer – Boateng, Mertesacker, Friedrich, Lahm – Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Ozil, Podolski – Cacau, Klose

Latest Match Odds from Bet365

Spain – 6/4
Draw – 12/5
Germany – 15/8
