Spain vs. Northern Ireland lineups, team news

Spain are expected to make changes to their starting lineup from their last game, with Mikel Oyarzabal set to start after scoring a hat-trick off the bench in the 5-0 victory over Andorra. Robin Le Normand, Pau Cubarsi and Lamine Yamal could all be handed starts here. Manchester City’s Rodri was not involved against Andorra but could return.

Spain predicted XI (4-3-3, right to left): Simon (GK) — Navas, Le Normand, Cubarsi, Grimaldo — Merino, Rodri, Fermin — Yamal, Williams, Oyarzabal.

Spain subs (9): TBC

Despite being massive underdogs, Northern Ireland have looked defensively solid recently, beating both Denmark and Scotland in their last three matches, with a 1-1 draw away in Romania sandwiched in between. 

They are likely play a full-strength XI on Saturday to provide Luis de la Fuente’s men with a proper test.  As such, skipper Jonny Evans is expected to feature in the central defensive trio for the visitors, while Josh Maggenis should lead the attack. Bolton Wanderers striker Dion Charles has withdrawn with a knee injury, though.

Northern Ireland predicted XI (5-4-1, right to left): Peacock-Farrell (GK)  — Hume, Ballard, Evans, Toal, Spencer  — Bradley, Evans, Thompson, Taylor — Maggenis.

Northern Ireland subs (9): TBC

Spain vs. Northern  Ireland prediction

Spain are expected to be dominant on Saturday and given their result against Andorra as well as a knack for early goals, this game could be done and dusted before the half-time interval. Motivated to head to Germany on a winning note, we fancy La Roja to emerge as comfortable victors on Saturday.

Prediction: Spain 3-0 Northern Ireland
