Norway and Sweden are both still in contention to win promotion to League A of the Nations League in Group 4 of League B.
Sweden are far better acclimatised to high profile fixture than the Norwegians in recent years, but the upcoming crop is looking very promising for Stale Solbakken’s men.
The Swedes appear to be edging towards the end of a cycle with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s retirement likely to come fairly soon and the Serie A winner is not involved in the current squad for the Nations League.
Sweden are behind the eight ball in the group with three games remaining, but Norway can open up a seven point cushion over the visitors in victory in Oslo.
Norway’s front three would not be out of place in League A.
Erling Haaland is arguably the most exciting striker on the planet at the moment, and flanked by Joshua King, who has an excellent goalscoring record for his country, and Mohamed Elyounoussi, the danger man will be expecting to find the net against Sweden.
Jens Hauge and Alexander Sorloth provide excellent options from the fringes, while Martin Odegaard takes the armband and pulls the strings from a deeper role than he plays for Arsenal.
Anthony Elanga, Emil Forsberg and Alexander Isak make up a menacing front three for the visitors as well, but no one is as feared as Haaland at the moment.
Both sides have been fairly reserved of late, as seems to be a theme of the Nations League.
Unders is tempting but I am more comfortable with leaning on the Asian Handicap again.
Norway have scored in seven of ten.
Norway have conceded in four of ten.
Norway have seen both teams score in three of ten.
Norway have seen over 2.5 goals in three of ten.
Sweden have scored in five of ten.
Sweden have conceded in six of ten.
Sweden have seen both teams score in two of ten.
Sweden have seen over 2.5 goals in three of ten.
Serbia take on Slovenia in the other fixture in the group, should they drop points and Norway take all three, League A will be in touching distance, the incentive is there.
