Staale Solbakken’s squad is underrated by many. And yet the Norwegian team has a whole group of outstanding performers. Of course, the leader and main star is Erling Holland, who is unstoppable at the start of the tournament.
The Norwegians looked decent in the last qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, narrowly missing out on a place in the knockout stages. They were three points adrift of second place in the group. The drills took points from Turkey and the Netherlands in the qualifying process. When determining a bet and prediction for the Norway vs Sweden match, it should be taken into account that the home side have not been the underdogs for a long time.
In March this year, the Norwegians played two friendlies, defeating Armenia and Slovakia 11-0 on aggregate. Even then, it was clear that Solbakken’s side would not be statisticians in the LoN.
The Blue-Yellows are still reeling from their defeat in the tiebreak. They came close to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, but lost in the deciding game to Poland. After all that drama, it’s hard for Forsberg and co to tune in at LH.
In the first round of this year’s LN, Andersson’s men managed to beat Slovenia (2-0). That’s not to say they were better, but their class helped. But it was not possible to get any points at home against the Norwegians (1-2). Yes, the Bilo-Syni controlled the game, with more possession. But they failed to finish off their attacks. It is better to place bets on the Norway-Sweden match, taking into account the occasional problems of Forsberg and Co with implementation.
Outlook of the match
The Norwegians got off to a dashing start in LH. They have Holand in the line-up, who rarely leaves the field without a goal. But the Swedes have solid experience and skill. They are unlikely to lose for a second time in the Scandinavian derby. That’s why it’s better to take X2.
