Spain won all three home encounters against Norway so far and they are going to be additionally inspired on Saturday under the new coach Luis de la Fuente.

  • Spain have won 10 of their last 14 matches at home
  • Spain have kept a clean sheet in 3 of their last 4 matches (UEFA Nations League)
  • Spain have won all 3 home games against Norway

Head to Head


Spain have a 4-1 advantage against Norway with 2 draws in 7 matches.

The most recent meeting took place in Oslo in October 2019. The final result was 1-1.

Spain Form


After advancing from the group stages with four points (a 7-0 win against Costa Rica and a 1-1 draw versus Germany), Spain were eliminated from the World Cup 2022 by Morocco on penalties.

The Red Fury had a successful appearance in the UEFA Nations League A, winning Group 2 ahead of Portugal, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic.

They will participate in the final tournament this summer, playing against Italy in the semi-finals.

Spain Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, David Raya, Robert Sánchez
Defenders: Dani Carvajal, José Gayá, Iñigo Martínez, Nacho, Pedro Porro, Alejandro Balde, Aymeric Laporte, David García
Midfielders: Rodri, Fabián Ruiz, Dani Ceballos, Martín Zubimendi, Gavi, Mikel Merino
Forwards: Álvaro Morata (captain), Iago Aspas, Nico Williams, Yeremy Pino, Dani Olmo, Mikel Oyarzabal, Borja Iglesias, Joselu

Newly appointed coach Luis de la Fuente has taken some drastic measures and left out some big names like Jordi Alba, Koke, Ferran Torres, Marco Asensio, Pablo Sarabia, and others for the first two games.

Álvaro Morata has 61 appearances for the national team and scored 30 goals. Joselu and David Garcia could make their debut.

Norway Form


The most important news regarding Norway and their trip to Spain is the absence of Manchester City’s star Erling Haaland. He will miss this duel due to a groin injury.

Stale Solbakken’s side had two decent showings during the friendly games in late 2022. First, they defeated the Republic of Ireland 2-1, followed by a 1-1 draw against Finland.

The Lions failed to earn promotion to UEFA Nations League A, ending as 2nd in Group 4 behind Serbia and ahead of Slovenia & Sweden. 

Norway Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Ørjan Nyland, Jacob Karlstrøm, Egil Selvik
Defenders: Birger Meling, Stefan Strandberg, Marcus Holmgren Pedersen, Julian Ryerson, Andreas, Hanche-Olsen, Leo Skiri Østigård, Fredrik André Bjørkan, Stian Rode Gregersen
Midfielders: Mohamed Elyounoussi, Martin Ødegaard (captain), Mats Møller Dæhli, Sander Berge, Kristian Thorstvedt, Morten Thorsby, Patrick Berg, Fredrik Aursnes, Ola Solbakken, Ola Brynhildsen, Hugo Vetlesen
Forwards: Alexander Sørloth, Jørgen Strand Larsen

Kristoffer Ajer and Erling Haaland are out due to injuries. 

Mohamed Elyounoussi has 49 appearances for the national team and scored 9 goals.

Verdict

I don’t view Norway as a big threat to Spain’s goal without Haaland. Spain to win the match and keep a clean sheet is my top pick.
