France coach Laurent Blanc is without centre-back Philippe Mexes, who misses the clash at the Donbass Arena in Donetsk through suspension after picking up two yellow cards in the group stages of the tournament.

But midfielder Yohan Cabaye (thigh) is available again after missing the disappointing Group D defeat against Sweden.

Les Bleus are expecting Samir Nasri (knee) and Franck Ribery (toe) to be passed fit despite both missing training earlier this week, but unconfirmed reports on Saturday morning suggested Blanc is considering dropping Man City midfielder Nasri following a bust-up between several of his senior players.

Spain are likely to again stick with Fernando Torres up front for this evening's game.

That would likely mean Spain coach Vicente del Bosque again leaves Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who like Torres has scored two goals at Euro 2012, on the bench.

The winners of tonight's game will face Portugal in the semi-finals.
