Norway vs Sweden
International Friendly Match
Date: Tuesday, 13th June 2017
Kick off at 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET
Venue: Ullevaal Stadion.
It will be an emotional evening for Lars Lagerback this Tuesday at Ullevaal Stadion when he will lead Norway against his home country and the team he led for over a decade.
The players most likely can’t wait for these 90 minutes to expire so they can enjoy well deserved summer break, but don’t doubt that the clash between the Scandinavian rivals will be packed with tension and high-quality football from the very first minute.
Norway finally managed to avoid a defeat for the second time in their WC Qualification campaign.
Even though Lagerback could not count on the serviced of his key man Joshua King, the team claimed a deserved point thanks to a successfully converted penalty from Alexander Toft Soderlund.
Sweden are looking to continue their perfect score in 2017. The team led by Janne Andresson has clinched their fourth consecutive win since the start of the year on Friday evening when they celebrated a huge 2-1 victory over France to overtake them at the top of the group A standings.
The Swedish expert can be thrilled with his team’s attacking form since Sweden notched 17 goals in four fixtures in 2017 against the likes of Slovakia, Belarus, Portugal and France.
Norway vs Sweden: Head to head
Sweden have also been much more successful in the history of the head to head meetings since they lost only four out of 20 encounters with their Scandinavian rivals.
The previous meeting took place at Ullevaal Stadion two years ago when the teams played goalless.
Norway vs Sweden: Prediction
Norway conceded at least a goal in each of their last ten matches and knowing how dangerous Sweden have been up front this year, we have no other option but to stick to the visitors here.
We also do expect to see both teams on the scoreline since the hoist certainly received a decent confidence boost by holding Czech Republic to a 1-1 draw at the weekend.
