The Luis de la Fuente era will kick off on Saturday when Spain host Norway in their first Euro 2024 qualifier.

With the World Cup heartbreak now in the rear-view mirror, Spain have made plenty of changes and La Roja are looking to quickly reestablish themselves as a genuine powerhouse of both European and world football.

Norway, on the other hand, are simply looking to get back to a major competition. They missed the World Cup for the sixth time in a row, while their appearance at Euro 2000 is the last time we saw Norway on the big stage.

Spain team news

Starting goalkeeper Unai Simon and star midfielder Pedri have both been forced to withdraw from the squad through injury. Bryan Gil also left the camp on Thursday, with no replacement named.

De la Fuente has called up no fewer than 15 new players following the World Cup, so expect a new-look side.

Potential debutants: Joselu, David Garcia

Spain predicted lineup vs Norway

(4-3-3): Raya; Porro, Laporte, I Martinez, Balde; Rodri, Gavi, Ceballos; Williams, Morata, Olmo.

Norway team news

The big news from the Norway camp is the absence of Erling Haaland, who suffered a groin injury with Manchester City and was sent back to the Etihad for further treatment.

Potential debutants: Jacob Karlstrom, Egil Selvik

Norway predicted lineup vs Spain

(4-3-3): Nyland; Pedersen, Strandberg, Ostigard, Meling; Berg, Berge, Odegaard; Daehli, Sorloth, Elyounoussi.

Spain vs Norway score prediction

Spain won't yet be at their fluid best as they adjust to the major upheaval the squad has seen over the past few months, but even a clunky performance should be enough to steer them comfortably past Norway.

The Scandinavian outfit have some solid players but the loss of Haaland is enormous and it'll take a massive effort for Norway to come out on top here.

Expect a routine win for Spain to kick off their European journey.

Prediction: Spain 3-0 Norway
