The fixture was the 46th match played by La Roja at Real Madrid's stadium, which is the arena to have hosted the most national team matches, followed by Mestalla (32) and the Sánchez-Pizjuán (25).
Stadium to have hosted the most wins
The team's record in these 46 outings is 29 wins, nine draws and eight defeats, with 101 goals for and 48 against. This tally of wins makes the Santiago Bernabéu the stadium to have witnessed the most wins for the Spanish national team.
This encounter marked the second time that Spain and Sweden have locked horns at the Santiago Bernabéu. The teams' first meeting was back on 17 November 2017 in a European Championship qualifier, in which Spain once again ran out 3-0 winners. Ramos was also on target on that occasion, finding the net in exactly the same minute as he broke the deadlock tonight.
