Norway vs Spain Team News
Spain is expected to be without the services of several star players including Paris Saint Germain forward Marco Asensio, Dani Olmo, Nico Williams and Yeremy Pino.
FC Barcelona wonderkid Lamine Yamal, Alejandro Balde and the experienced Jose Gaya are also sidelined due to injuries.
Unlike Spain, Norway have most of their players available. The Stale Solbakken-coached side will rely on Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegard and Haaland to get them over the line.
The latter has netted 27 times for his country and is on the verge of overtaking Norway’s all-time scorer Jorgen Juve whose tally stands at 32.
Norway vs Spain head-to-head

Spain have enjoyed four wins over their opponents while one of the matches ended in a 1-1 draw.
Norway vs Spain Current Form
Spain have won all five of their international matches. The Luis de la Fuente charges last tasted defeat in March this year, falling 2-0 at the hands of Scotland.
Since then, La Roja has beaten the likes of Italy, Croatia, Georgia, Cyprus and Scotland.
Their opponents on the other hand have registered four back to back wins in their recent five games.
Norway’s last defeat came on Monday, June 17 when the team narrowly lost 2-1 to Scotland in a Euro qualifiers match.
Norway vs Spain Prediction
Although the visitors can afford to lose the match since they are likely to register comfortable wins in two of their remaining matches, Spain would be keen to maintain the three point gap over Scotland at the top of Group A standings.
La Roja’s success in Oslo is not guaranteed though since Norway will give their all to increase their chances of booking a seat on the Germany-bound plane. Therefore, the match is likely to witness goals from both sides.
