Casillas concedes that he does not fancy the prospect of having to travel to Norway needing a positive result, but insisted the team were capable of battling through if need be.
"Playing at home first, you have to think, above all, about not conceding goals in the game at the Mestalla," stated the Real custodian.
"It's a tie of two legs and if they score then you have to score two over there.
"Hopefully we can get a good advantage here to go over there feeling calm.
"But if we have to suffer to get through, we will suffer."
Casillas also believes that Inaki Saez has found the right balance of youth and experience within his current Spanish squad.
"We are a young team with a lot of talent and also a few older heads.
"We have enough experience to get to the European Championships which is a very important goal.
"It would be a big shame if this team was not there."
