Spain brings a slightly unfamiliar looking squad into this Euro 2020 qualifying opener, but they should be too strong for Norway this Saturday in Valencia.

Match preview 🖊
With four of Spain’s last five games seeing the teams share more than 4.5 match goals, there could be another goal-fest in store here. They've scored 2+ goals in each of their last nine competitive home games, winning to-nil on seven occasions and that bodes well for an entertaining encounter.
What about Norway? Martin Ødegaard, on loan from Real Madrid, hasn't been on the losing side every single time he's scored this season for Dutch side Vitesse. We wouldn't back that happening again though, Spain should be too strong here. The BTTS market is attractive though, with six of Spain's last eight matches seeing both sides find the back of the net.
Team news 📰
After Spain's squad was named last Friday, there has only been one change. They are now without Fabian Ruiz, who had to pull out of the squad through illness. The Napoli man has been replaced by Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez. 30-year-old Getafe striker Jaime Mata will be expected to feature after getting his first international call up.
Norway is not expected to have any fresh injuries, with Kristoffer Ajer recovering from a head injury in time to be available for the clash.
