Norway is hosting Serbia at Ulevaal Stadion in the semifinals of the UEFA Euro Cup Qualification Playoffs.
Norway is in great form, and they have lost only 1 of their last 11 games. In their last two games in the Nations League, Norway has scored 6 goals while conceding 3 goals. Norway has lost to Austria in their first game, but they were fantastic against Northern Ireland on the road in their second game. Norway has had 44% of ball possession in this game, 8 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a decent 79% of the correct passes. Until the 19th minute of the game, Norway has scored 3 goals, and they were leading 1-3 at half time. In the second half, Norway has scored 2 more goals, and they have won this match 1-5. King has scored 5 goals for Norway in the Euro Cup Qualifications, while Sorloth added 4 goals, and Johnsen has added 3 goals. The good news for Norway is that all these players will be available for this game, plus Haaland and Odegard who will add more flare and the offensive firepower to this team. Norway is playing good soccer with fast counter-attacks, and their offensive line is hard to stop, and I don’t think this game will be the exception.
Serbia is not playing well at the moment, and they haven’t won any of their last 3 games. Serbia has played 2 games in the Nations League last month, and they have conceded 3 goals while scoring 2 goals in those two games. In their latest Nations League game against Turkey at home, Serbia has had 41% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 79% of accurate passes. Serbia was defending well in this game, especially after conceding a red card in the 49th minute. This match ended in a 0-0 draw. Serbia has scored a solid amount of goals in the Euro Cup qualifications, and Mitrovic has scored 10 goals for Serbia, while Radonjic and Tadic each added 2 goals. Kostic is the only injured player for Serbia at the moment. Serbia has a good team, but they are a little thin on the defensive end, and their best defender is Kolarov, but he is 35 years old and can no longer carry the rest of the defenders by himself. When they put their heads together, Serbia can play good soccer and they can play against anyone, but it’s been a long time since Serbia was playing consistent soccer, but if they want to go to the Euro Cup, Serbia will need to play their best soccer yet.
Norway and Serbia played their last game back in 2006, and it ended in a 1-1 draw. Norway is scoring a lot of goals and they are playing good soccer, while Serbia certainly can play well, and they can score a lot of goals, but they are not there yet. This could be an interesting game, and I think we will see at least 3 goals here.
