Latest Headlines

Spain continue their rebuilding job this week, as Luis Enrique continues to lead the Spanish towards the European Championships. Despite that, the pressure is on them to qualify in style, as they look to improve on a poor 2018 which left more questions than answers for the 2010 World Cup winners. With the top two making it to the Euros, theres little fear of missing out from the Spanish. They head to the Faroe Islands, which is set to be one of their more straightforward clashes in the group.

Anyhow, La Roja are more of a team than the home side. The hosts have always been cannon fodder in the qualifiers for major tournaments. Lars Olsens troops head into the match following back-to-back defeats to Malta and Romania. Valencia attacker Rodrigo, who is with one foot at Camp Nou, will be one of the men to watch in the away team. On the other hand, The Spaniards are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions.

Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz could make his Spanish debut after being forced to withdraw from the squad in March due to illness. Luis Enrique could field a few fringe players to keep players fresh to face Sweden. Santi Cazorla is back in the squad for the first time since 2015 after his injury hell ended with a solid season for Villarreal.

It is certainly worth remembering that they are three-time winners of the European Championships - including back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2012 - but they were eliminated from the 2016 competition in the first knockout round. It has been a disappointing few years for Spain, having exited the 2014 World Cup in the group stages before being knocked out of last year's tournament in the round of 16.

Faroe Islands vs Spain Prediction & Betting Tips

There are six uncapped players in the squad in total, including HB defenders Magnus Egilsson and Bartal Wardum and K midfielders Jakup Biskopsto Andreasen and Joannes Bjartalio. Experienced goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen and injured defender Sonni Ragnar Nattestad both miss out for the Faroe Islands. With Nielsen missing, one of uncapped duo Karstin Hansen or Kristian Joensen could make their debuts in goal.

The former Barcelona boss was the one to tweak Barcelonas style to take them to their first post-Guardiola Champions League success, so he seems like a solid choice. Enrique is trying to renew a team which rested on the heroes of 2010 for too long. Spain cruised to the World Cup, but they ended up out in the last 16 after the Julen Lopetegui affair. Their early wins over England and Croatia in the Nations League helped, but defeats to those two in the reverse fixtures left Enrique under pressure.

Given the home teams shaky defence, Spain are likely to crush the minnows in Torshavn but could end up conceding in the process. The home team has been struggling at the back in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. Lars Olsens charges have already conceded six goals in the process. The visiting side looks sharp in front of goal. Luis Enrique has several top-class players to choose from.
