Norway vs Serbia
Euro Qualification Semi-finals – Playoffs
Date: Thursday, 8 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ulleval Stadion (Oslo).
Norway has lost only one of their last five clashes in the schedule, following a 1-5 win on the road against the likes of Northern Ireland in the UNL fixture. However, their shaky defense at times is reflected in having only one clean sheet within the recent seven clashes across all major contests in the schedule.
Returning home after a victory will be an ideal situation for the host. Meanwhile, Serbia will not be pushing the home team’s defense that much in the upcoming clash. They are on the back of a three-game winless streak in the schedule across all major competitions.
Having lost their last outing in their record this year itself, the Eagles will visit on the back of a goalless draw at home against Turkey in the UNL fixture this season. With their poor away form, the visitor is not likely to pose a threat to the home team.

The teams have not met before in recent times.
Norway vs Serbia Prediction
The back-to-back wins in their recent schedule along with an unbeaten streak in all but one of the last ten clashes in their record is likely to improve the morale of the Norwegian players. Besides, the host enjoys the ground advantage in the game backed by just one loss in the last 16 home matches.
Serbia is not that bad in their away fixtures in the schedule, but their recent outings haven’t been successful either in their records. They have lost two and have only two wins in their last seven away games across all major competitions in the schedule.
Based on these stats, the match is sizing to be in favor of the home team regarding their ground advantage and recent form in the middle. The double chance favoring Norway will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
Along with that, the punter can also rely on tips like over 1.5 goals in full-time and Norway to win with a +1 handicap to yield decent returns from the encounter.
