Slovenia vs Norway UEFA Nations League Prediction by LeagueLane

Slovenia vs Norway
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 16 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Stozice (Ljubljana).

It is fair to say Slovenia are one of the biggest disappointments in Group 3 of League C. Zmajceci took only a single point in four games so far and sit at the rock-bottom of the group standings. It means they are in great danger of being eliminated to the weakest League D of the competition in the second edition of Nations League.

Can the hosts prevent such scenario and pick up their initial victory of the campaign on Friday evening when joint-leaders Norway come to visit Ljubljana? The Lions will head into this high on confidence after back-to-back 1-0 wins at home over Slovenia and Bulgaria in October. The latter victory moved them lock on points with Bulgaria coming into this final pair of fixtures in November.

Slovenia vs Norway: Head-to-head

The head to head record also favours the visitors who have been the dominant force in this match-up over the course of history.

Norway won 6, drew 1 and lost 1 of 8 meetings with Slovenia so far.

Ole Kristian Selnaes was the one who made the difference scoring the only goal of the game when these two likes met each other a month ago in Oslo.

Slovenia vs Norway: Prediction

Slovenia are actually going through a tough “generations change” process at the moment, hence such poor results in the maiden Nations League edition. The likes of Bostjan Cesar, Kevin Kampl and Valter Birsa retired just recently leaving Josip Ilicic as the lone star in the team. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak will also be absent in November fixtures against Norway and Bulgaria.

The visitors will come here in a respectable squad which includes the likes of Joshua King, Ola Kamara and Tarik Elyounoussi. Norwegian national side grew in form significantly in recent months and it is mainly thanks to Lars Lagerback’s rock-solid defense. The team kept clean sheets in four of last five matches and we have to see them as outfit closer to snatching the spoils here at Stadion Stozice.

Slovenia vs Norway: Bet Tips

  • Norway to win @ 2.60 (8/5)
  • Norway to keep a clean sheet @ 2.62 (13/8).
