Euro Qualifications / Norway vs Spain – This match is far more important for the Norwegians who occupy the 4th place in the table and are short for two points for the wanted 2nd place. Spain is alone at the top of Group F with maximal six wins and they have already got a foot in the door of European Championship so they can play without pressure. Norway had put up a solid resistance to Spain in their first duel but the Spaniards won at home by 2-1.
Game Norway vs Spain begins 12.10.2019 at 20:45 CET
The Norwegians plays well in these qualifications despite very strong competition. Besides Spain they share the group with Sweden and Romania, and it would be a great success if they win the second place. Norway lost only once so far, which happened in the first round when they played in Spain. They won only outsiders Malta and Faroe Island, and drew three times, two times with Sweden. They scored by one goal in each match and now they hope that the Spaniards will be less motivated due to situation in the table. Kamara and Johnses are absent, while Gabrielsen and Haaland are injured.
Probable lineups Norway: Jarstein – Elabdellaoui, Ajer, Nordtveit, Aleesami – Berge, Henriksen – Johansen, Odegaard, Selnaes – King
The Spaniards have practically finished the job and it is only matter of time when will mathematically secure a place for themselves at the European Championship. Ahead of them are two away matches with Scandinavian teams as after Norway they are going to face Sweden in three days but they have no imperative. Regarding first six matches Norway was one of those rivals with whom the Spaniards had more trouble than usually and they won by minimal goal-difference, just like Romania away two rounds ago. Remaining four victories were won by sound goal-difference, including the last one over the Faroe Island by 4-0. The team is radically changed compared that match and defenders Hemosoa, Gaye and J. Alba, midfielder Parejo and forward P. Alcacer are not in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Spain: Arrizabalaga – J. Navas, Ramos, I. Martinez, J. Bernat – Busquets, Ruiz, Saul Niguez – Oyarzabal, G. Moreno, Rodrigo
Betting Pick: Norway vs Spain
The Norwegians are very tough rival for anyone and Spain struggled against them in the first match so they have no reason to not try to parry at home. The guests lack strong motive and that could come handy to the home team, so we will forecast at least one goal scored by each team.
Pick: Both teams to score
Odds: 1.97 at 888sport (down to 1.87 can be played)
