Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
All eyes will be on Ullevaal Stadion when Norway and Spain face each other in Group F. La Furia Roja have been impressive in the Euro 2020 qualifiers to date, with the team emerging triumphant in each of their six group games. The Spaniards aim to keep their 100% record intact and seeing that they want to get their job done in the qualifiers as soon as possible, we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Norwegians.
The hosts, on the other hand, are eyeing a top-two finish, meaning that Saturday’s football match is of big importance for them. Seeing that Norway are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Ullevaal Stadion clash, we are positive that Robert Moreno’s troops will have a number of opportunities to find the net on the break. A man to watch in the away team will be Valencia attacker Rodrigo, who has netted three goals in the process to date.
Highlighted Player (Omar Elabdellaoui):
Omar Elabdellaoui is a footballer of Moroccan descent who represents Norway on the international stage. Elabdellaoui made his Norway debut in August 2013 in a friendly match against Sweden. He spent 72 minutes on the field, playing as a right back.
Speaking of his club career, the 179-cm-tall footballer played for Manchester City youth team from 2008 and 2011, but he did not make his Man City debut at senior level. After ending his loan spells with Stromsgodset and Feyenoord he moved to Eintracht Braunshweig in 2013. On 10 May, 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the German outfit and it has to be noted that he scored one goal in 43 league appearances for die Lowen.
In June 2014 he signed a contract with Olympiakos of Greece and he made his debut with the club on 23 August in a 3-1 victory over Niki Volos. Omar Elabdellaoui is capable of playing as both right back and a right midfielder. He was born on 5 December, 1991 in Oslo.
Highlighted Team (Spain):
Historically, Spain have been regarded as one of top sides on international stage, but they often struggled to live up to the billing. After reaching the semi-finals at the 1950 World Cup, La Furia Roja won the European Championship trophy on home soil in 1964, but little did they know that it would remain their only trophy for another 44 years.
Following some disappointing showings, Spain finally returned to the biggest stage under Vicente Del Bosque, winning three straight trophies between 2008 and 2012, before crashing out in the group stage at the 2014 World Cup. La Furia Roja enjoyed plenty of success with their tiki-taka style of play, originally designed by Barcelona, with Vicente Del Bosque’s side packed with technically skilled players such as Xavi Hernandez, Xabi Alonso, Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas and David Silva.
Strikers Fernando Torres and David Villa also had a major role to play in those successes, but when it comes to their famous predecessors, the likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Michel, Emilio Butrageno, Raul Gonzalez, Fernando Morientes and Fernando Hierro should not be forgotten.
