Spain – Norway, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SPAIN - NORWAY
The Spaniards have failed in their last two Nations League games and had to rely on a draw between England and Croatia to be the first, but it didn’t happen, so now Luis Enrique will look for a European path through qualifiers. After their last official match against Croatia in which they lost 3-2, La Furia Roja played a friendly with Bosnia in which they won 1-0. Enrike decided not to rely on some important figures for these qualifiers, such as Isco and Alcantara, but Morata is again in the national squad. The call of the attacker Jaime Mata from Getafe should be noted. He had a great season with his team and is about to qualify in Top 4.
Norway achieved their goal and finished first in the group, in which also took part in the teams of Bulgaria, Slovakia and Cyprus. The Norwegians showed character and won the last match, which means they will play playoffs. Norway does not do that well when they play against teams that can sharply change speed and sharpen the attack with passes, like the Spaniards. Certainly guests will be very defensive in this game.
Some important defenders for the Norwegians will not take part in this match until they will rely most on Joshua King in the frontline position. Howe designates him as “a top class athlete”. King is in shape, but Spain is a much better team. Despite the losses in the League of Nations Tournament, La Furia Roja is doing brilliantly in the qualifiers. In this century, they played 20 home games for European qualifiers, with 19 wins, but a huge number of goals scored. Only a few months ago they scored 6 against the world finalist, Croatia. Prediction – Spain to score in both halves at 1.74.
