Barcelona - Rafael Nadal will lead an unchanged Spain squad against Argentina in next month's Davis Cup final.

The second-ranked Nadal helped Spain beat France 4-1 in the semi-finals to set up the December 2-4 final on indoor clay at the Olympic Stadium in Seville.

Fifth-ranked David Ferrer is set to play singles alongside Nadal, while Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco should team-up for doubles.

Spain captain Albert Costa has also included Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez as playing partners. Granollers is coming off a victory at the Valencia Open.

The four-time champions begin training in Seville on Saturday, with Nadal and Ferrer joining up after the ATP World Tour Finals.

Spain beat Argentina in the 2008 final.
