Norway will host its Scandinavian neighbor Sweden this Sunday for a home fixture in Group 4 of League B in the ongoing edition of the Nations League.
Norwegian fans will be pretty happy with the start that it has achieved so far. With 2 wins in 3 matches, Norway is currently topping the tables in Group 4, with a 1 point lead over Serbia, who has played a similar number of games. After winning the first two matches on the trot, Norway was held to a goalless draw in its latest outing, when it hosted Slovenia.
Despite playing with just 10 men for the final 30 minutes of the game, Slovenia was able to repel every attack that Norway, which enjoyed a 60% possession, threw at it. However, having beaten Sweden in the reverse fixture earlier this month, Norwegian coach Stale Solbakken will be hoping for a repeat performance this time around too. Despite holding just a 34% possession, the visitors managed to win a memorable 2-1 win, thanks to a brace by Erling Haaland. For this match too, Norway starts as the favorite on most football betting sites.
Sweden started its campaign on a winning note, defeating Slovenia 2-0 in its opening game of the competition. However, they have endured 2 back to back losses since then, including the one against Norway in the reverse fixture. The latest setback came on Thursday when Luka Jovic scored the first goal of the match for the visitors in first-half stoppage time, and the hosts weren’t able to match it.
With that loss, Sweden is now in the 3rd spot on the points table, with a slender 2-point lead over Slovenia. Janne Andersson knows that with half the fixtures already over, time is running out fast for the Lions if they want to move up the table.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Norway vs Sweden Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at the Ullevaal Stadium, Oslo, on 12th June 2022.
It has been a busy couple of weeks for Norway, with quick turnaround times between games. Coach Stale Solbakken is expected to churn his players in this game so as to provide them adequate rest. Fredrik Aursnes and Joshua King are expected to be rested for this game, while Mohammed Elyounoussi and Erling Haaland are expected to retain their spots in the starting eleven.
The visitors will be playing without Kristoffer Olsson and Mattias Svanberg, both of whom are suspended for this game. Joakim Nilsson, who withdrew from the game against Serbia is doubtful for this match due to an injury and will join Carl Starfelt and Victor Lindelof in the infirmary.
The weakened defenses of Sweden will provide Haaland and co with ample opportunities to score, and help them move closer to achieving its second promotion in 3 editions.
Bet on a Norway win.
3 of the last 5 head-to-head games between the two teams have produced fewer than 2.5 goals in them. 4 of the last 5 matches for Sweden, and 3 of the last matches for Norway have failed to see 3 or more goals in them as well. We think Under 2.5 seems like a good option here.
Norway has kept a clean sheet in 6 of its last 8 games, while Sweden has failed to score in 4 of its last 7 games, and we believe they will find it difficult to get past the able hands of Orjan Nyland once more.
