Slovenia has won only two points so far. At home, they drew 2-2 against Serbia, while in Oslo they drew 0-0 against the Norwegians. It is interesting that at halftime they were losing to Serbia 0-2, but they managed to avoid a third defeat in this edition of the youngest UEFA competition.
The Slovenians played the two worst games in the first two rounds. The Swedes routinely beat them 0-2 in the first match, and then the Serbs were even more convincing in Belgrade 1-4. They have improved their form in the last two matches, so it remains to be seen if they will continue like that now.
The Norwegians have not yet lost in this edition of the UEFA Nations League. They achieved three wins and one draw, and they are in first place with 10 points. Both times they beat Sweden 3-2 and 2-1, while in Belgrade they defeated Serbia 1-0.
Try to guess who is the top scorer of this national team in the UEFA Nations League? Of course it’s Erling Haaland. Norway’s best player scored five of the national team’s six goals in the first four games. He also participated in the sixth goal, and the Manchester City striker assisted Alexander Sorlotha.
The Norwegians will look for another victory in Slovenia. A positive result in this match will bring them even closer to League A. A draw against Serbia in the last round will be enough if they win in Ljubljana.
A potential handicap ahead of the match against Slovenia is the injury of the most creative player, Martin Odegaard, who is questionable for this duel.
As we have already mentioned, the Norwegians and Slovenians played a match without a winner in Oslo in June – 0-0.
Slovenia (5-3-2): Oblak; Karnicnik, Bijol, Mevlja, Brekalo, Sikosek; Zajc, Cerin, Kurtic; Sesko, Verbic
Norway (4-3-3): Nyland; Ryerson, Strandberg, Ostigard, Bjorkan; Odegaard, Berge, Thorsby; Elyounoussi, Haaland, Sorloth
We believe that the Norwegian football players will approach this match with maximum seriousness and focus. If they win, they will be even closer to qualifying for League A, which is their primary goal.
