- OffMarkus HenriksenNorway
- OnBjørn JohnsenNorway
NORWAY CHANGE: Johnsen on for Henriksen.
- Yellow cardFabián RuizSpain
Ramos booked on his big night! That means he'll miss the clash in Sweden on Tuesday.
Ramos gives the ball away cheaply and King is sent racing towards goal. He holds off Albiol but lashes his shot over the top. That was a big chance for Norway.
- OffMikel OyarzabalSpain
SPAIN CHANGE: Rodri on for Oyarzabal.
Norway are pushing. They know they need a result to have realistic hopes of qualifying from this group. Moreno a little anxious on the touchline.
Selnaes arrives on a knockdown and lets fly from inside the box, but Saul is there to make a crucial block and divert it to safety.
Spain's main man tonight?
Update: Sweden are now 3-0 ahead in Malta.
CLOSE! Fabian cuts inside on his left foot and fizzes in a lovely strike that clips the top of the bar and flies just over.

KICK OFF! Spain restart the contest.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Norway 0-0 Spain.
Kristoffer Ajer is left free to attack a left-wing corner, but gets his header all wrong. Set pieces seem to be Norway's best bet.
- Yellow cardJoshua KingNorway
Saul meets a left-wing corner with a flicked header, but can't keep his effort down.
A neat move from the hosts ends with a ball over the top for Elabdellaoui. The right back has time to take it down and let fly, but his strike is too close to Kepa and the Spain stopper makes an important save.
- Yellow cardRodrigoSpain
Just over half an hour gone and it's pretty even at this point. Lars Lagerbäck will be the happier of the two coaches.
Almost a sensational introduction from Hovland, but he fails to fully connect with a right-wing corner after being left unmarked at the far post.
- OffHåvard NordtveitNorway
- OnEven HovlandNorway
NORWAY CHANGE: The injured Nordtveit replaced by Even Hovland.
King sees his shot from 10 yards blocked by Ramos after Spain struggled to deal with a succession of high balls into the box.
The travelling support may be outnumbered but they are making themselves heard in Oslo.
Saul sees his low drive from 20 yards well saved after Norway had only half-cleared Navas' cross.
King sees his far-post header well-saved after a ridiculous rabona cross from Elabdellaoui.
Odegaard turns neatly midway in the Spain half and threads a lovely ball into the path of King. The forward looks to power into the left side of the area, but is well marshalled and can't get his shot away.
Rodrigo is a whisker away from touching home Navas' driven, low cross into the six-yard box after a wonderful flick from Fabián Ruiz unlocked the Norwegian defence.
Norway win the ball with a high press and work it out wide to the right. Elabdellaoui fires over a cross but Ramos is there to nod clear.
La Roja neat and tidy in and around the area, but not really penetrating a well-organised Norway rearguard as of yet.
Norway are struggling to get much going as an attacking force. Odegaard is dropping into the hole but even when he gets on the ball, it's not long before Spain are mopping up and probing once more.
King hits the deck under pressure from Ramos. The crowd cry for a penalty, but the referee is not interested. That would have been a bad way for the defender to kick off his big night.
STAT: Norway have lost only two of their last 16 games (1-0 to Bulgaria in the Nations League and 2-1 in Spain).
Norway are yet to spend more than a few seconds in the Spain half. The visitors have their tails up in these early stages.
Spain surge straight onto the attack and Rune Jarstein is forced into early action to push away a stinging drive from the left.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Norway get us underway. Spain are in white.
Earlier today, Romania won 3-0 in the Faroe Islands to move five points behind Spain in second place in Group F.
Spain look relaxed and ready. Can they make it seven wins from seven in Group F?
A little more detail on those stats...
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Norway have won just one of their seven previous meetings with Spain. That solitary success came at Euro 2000. La Roja have won on five occasions, including the 2-1 victory in this pool back in March.
Sixteen-year-old forward Ansu Fati could figure in Spain's Euro 2020 squad, national coach Robert Moreno said on Friday.
Martin Ødegaard: "I don’t think [Spain] are fearing that many teams, to be honest. I have knowledge about them now and they are going to play their kind of football. They don’t care so much about who they are playing against. I don’t think that they are thinking a lot of that."
CONFIRMED TEAMS - NORWAY: Jarstein, Elabdellaoui, Nordtveit, Ajer, Aleesami, Berge, Henriksen, Johansen, Selnaes, Odegaard, King. /// SPAIN: Kepa, Navas, Bernat, Albiol, Ramos, Ceballos, Busquets, Saul, Oyarzabal, Rodrigo, Ruiz Pena.
