As part of one of the qualification matches for the 2024 World Cup, the players of the national teams of Spain and Norway will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this duel? Our sports portal evaluates the chances of rivals for success.
The Spanish national team successfully performed in the League of Nations, managing to take the first place in its A-League group. As a result, the "red fury" will compete with three other teams for victory in the playoffs of the tournament. But at the World Cup, where the Spanish team confidently came out, today's hosts performed extremely poorly. The team reached the 1/8 finals of the tournament, where it lost to the Moroccan national team in a series of 11-meter shots. After the World Cup, the Spaniards have not held friendly and official matches yet.
NorwayThe Norwegian national team actively fought for the first place in the League in the League of Nations, but came to the finish on the second line, gaining 10 points to its asset.
The Vikings could have taken the first place, but they lost in the last two meetings, which affected the distribution of places in the quartet. The Scandinavian team also did not perform at the FIFA World Cup. In its sextet, the club took the third place, gaining 18 points and 3 points behind Turkey, which played in the promotion tournament. In friendly matches in mid-November, the Vikings defeated Ireland (2:1), and also lost to Finland (1:1).Statistics and figures:
The hosts are the favorites of the meeting;
- Spain has not won in 3 matches in a row;
- Norway has not lost in 2 consecutive games;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 1:1.
I am sure that in this match the opponents will be able to break through the total on the submitted corners.
After all, the "red fury" and "Vikings" are in good shape and have their own leaders with whom they can get involved in an open game. I also believe that each of the opponents will score at least one goal in the match, since the opponents' attack is in good shape and will please the fans with its effectiveness.
