Del Bosque wants three points in Paris

25 March 2013 05:49

Spain head coach Vicente del Bosque wants his side to beat France in their own backyard on Tuesday night.

Spain conceded in the last 15 minutes of their World Cup qualifier against Finland on Friday, which ensured the game finished 1-1 and allowed les Bleus to forge a two-point lead at the top of Group I.

Del Bosque will want to avoid a third successive draw in qualification for the World Cup 2014 finals and a victory at the Stade de France would allow them to leapfrog Didier Deschamps' men.

The former Real Madrid boss told reporters on Sunday: "We will go to France to win. We have to play four more games (and) we must be optimistic.

"Tuesday is a very important match against France, but after that we will play three more games. We'll see how it goes."

It would be a major shock if the reigning world and European champions failed to qualify for the finals in Brazil next summer, though if they finish second behind France in Group I then they could still make it into the 32-team tournament via a play-off win.

Spain drew 1-1 with Les Bleus in October last year at home, failing to replicate their 2-0 victory in the Euro 2012 quarter-finals against their neighbours.
