  • Feliciano López and Pablo Carreño take Spain ahead after beating Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot in straight sets in Marbella on Saturday

Spain go into the final day of the Davis Cup round against Great Britain with the advantage of two points to one after the victory of Feliciano López and Pablo Carreño in Saturday's doubles match.

The Spanish pair beat GB's Jaime Murray and Dominic Inglot in straight sets - 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (4) - at the Puente Romano tennis club in Marbella.

The teams ended the first day of the round, Friday, with a point each after a surprise win from Cameron Norrie against Roberto Bautista.

Spain took the first point thanks to Albert Ramos-Vinolas's victory over Liam Broady earlier that day.

The round ends on Sunday with the two remaining singles matches, in which Spain are favourites to win.
