The matchup between these sides is indeed a rare one, as this will only be their fifth meeting in almost 45 years.
Tonight's clash will also serve as a bit of rubber match, as Finland and Spain come in tied with one win apiece along with two draws (1-1-2) in their head-to-head series.
The last time they met was at Estadio Municipal El Molinón in Gijón, Spain, on March 22, 2013, in a battle of wills that ended in a stalemate.
Assisted by David Silva, Sergio Ramos got Spain on the board during the 49th-minute, while Teemu Pukki provided Finland with the equalizer (79') thanks to Alex Ring’s assist.
Although they'd played to a 1-1 tie in that World Cup 2014 (schedule) qualifier, the match wouldn’t end without some controversy.

In the 90th minute, a scuffle broke out when Silva was bum-rushed by Niklas Moisander and other Finland players near the visitor's goal.
It appears the Spaniard tried to jar the ball loose from the goal-keeper's hands following an Andres Iniesta pass that ricocheted off the goal post.
Even though Silva would be rescued by teammate Gerard Pique, it's safe to say there's no love lost between these two sides, who will each be out for blood in tonight's tiebreaker.
