Spain head to Norway this weekend looking to maintain their 100 per cent record in qualifying for Euro 2020.
Roberto Moreno’s side sit top of Group F following six wins from six matches, and another victory in the Norwegian capital could see La Roja qualify for next summer’s tournament.
The hosts for their part are very much in the hunt for a qualification spot and after losing their opening match in the group against Spain, Norway are unbeaten in their last five matches.
Spain ran out 2-1 winners when the two sides met in the group opener back in March and another victory can be backed at 1.40 with Sportsbet.
Norway for their part are offered at 6.50 with the draw at 4.00.
Norway vs Spain Team News
Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba is missing from the Spain squad through injury, with uncapped Sergio Reguilon called up in his position. The Real Madrid full-back, on loan at Sevilla, is one of three players without any caps to their name included in the squad with Villarreal pair Pau Torres and Gerard Moreno the others.
Norway meanwhile can count on the services of one of the most in-form players in the Spanish top flight with Martin Odegaard likely to start after a brilliant opening two months in La Liga with Real Sociedad.
Norway vs Spain Preview
Spain are rightly favourites for this game given their excellent run and superior players, but La Roja were made to work hard in the last meeting between these two sides.
The 2010 World Cup winners remain a side who dominate possession but often struggle to convert that dominance into clear cut scoring chances and opposing them to run riot in the final is generally a strong option.
Defensively however they are rock solid and concede precious few goals in competitive matches. This current qualifying campaign has seen them let in three goals in six games, while their qualifying campaign for the World Cup saw them concede three goals in their 10 matches.
Norway have managed to score in all of their games in the group so far, but their goal in a 2-1 defeat to Spain came from a fortuitous penalty, with the spot-kick being their only shot on target in the game.
Tips and predictions
The price of 2.40 for Spain to win to nil looks like an attractive option, while back the visitors to win and under 2.5 goals at 3.50 could also be worthy of interest.
