Only one Barcelona player in Spain's eleven against Macedonia. Sergio Busquets was the one, with Sergi Roberto in the bench. With Piqué, Alba and Iniesta injured, Julen Lopetegui only used one player from Barcelona in his line-up.

Lopetegui chose Dani Carvajal from Real Madrid instead of Sergi Roberto at right-back.

Since 9 September 2004, with Luis Aragones as the national manager, that Spain didn't play with only one player from Barcelona. That time was in a match against Bosnia and Carles Puyol was selected. However, two more players formed in La Masia did start against Macedonia: Thiago Alcantara and Marc Bartra.
