Sweden vs Norway
Date: Sunday, 8 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
There was certainly no dearth of excitement or goals when the two teams last locked horns with each other as Norway fought back from behind to force the Swedish outfit to share the spoils with them in a six-goal thriller.
Despite being three goals up for major part of that game, the hosts were able to salvage not more than a point at the last blast of the whistle as their counterparts found the back of the net thrice with just twenty minutes left on the clock.
However, Sweden have proven themselves to be a much more ruthless side on home soil and have picked up the win in both of their clashes here so far. Considering that visitors have also tasted success just once in their last two trips on the road, the odds are certainly against Norway to come out on top in this one.
Sweden vs Norway Head to head (h2h)
- Three out of their last five fixtures have seen Sweden emerge victoriously.
- Their last encounter finished in a 3-3 draw.
- Norway’s last victory over this opponent in a competitive game was a 2-1 win back in 1977.
- Four of their previous six meetings have seen goals down each end.
Sweden vs Norway Prediction
In all honesty, the home team were much the better side in their previous head to head matchup. The squad registered twenty attempts at goal in that clash, half of which were right on target, while their foes were able to work the goalkeeper just four times from their eleven efforts.
Moving on, it is also worth mentioning that the Swedes have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their matches on home soil, and have scored five goals from their last two alone while conceding just once.
Although the visitors did turn things around in their previous clash with the hosts, repeating the same especially in their backyard just does not fit the equation.
Nevertheless, you can count on the away side to not go down without a fight. The guests have found the back of the net at least once in each of their last four outings. So you can count on Norway to get their names on the scoresheet along with Sweden by the end of the ninety minutes.
