Switzerland talisman Granit Xhaka will miss out through suspension after picking up a second yellow card of the tournament in the win over France.
Manager Vladimir Petkovic said: "Granit's absence is a setback but I have an idea how we are going to deal with that.
"In any case, it means everyone else on the pitch has to give 10 percent more because Spain are a great team and they scored 10 goals in their last two games."
Denis Zakaria is likely to replace Xhaka.
Jordi Alba could replace Jose Gaya at left-back for Spain but Luis Enrique is unlikely to make his usual raft of changes before this game.
Pau Torres probably missed his opportunity to fight his way back in the team after struggling in aerial battles when he came on against the Croats.
