The Norwegian national team will host the Serbs on October 8. Will the Norwegians be able to make it to the final qualifying round for Euro? – the answer is in our forecast.
The Norwegians showed themselves very well in qualifying for the European Championship. The team played in Group F. At the same time, they never lost, but even with such a result they could not break into the Euro directly.
In the League of Nations, the Norwegian national team lost to the Austrians (1: 2). This ended the team’s streak of nine unbeaten matches. Lars Lagerbek’s charges managed to pull themselves together and defeated the Northern Ireland national team (5: 1).
The Serbian national team, through the qualification, could not make it to Euro 2020 directly. At the same time, they managed to score 14 points in eight fights. Before the fight with the Norwegians, Lyubisha Tumbakovich’s wards played two games in the League of Nations – a defeat from the Russian national team (1: 3) and a draw with the Turks (0: 0). In the last game, from the 47th minute, the Serbian national team played in the minority, Kolarov was sent off.
The Norwegians have lost only 1 of 16 home matches
Serbs have won 5 of their last 10 matches while playing away
Norway won 5 of their last 10 home games
We believe that the Norwegian national team is rightfully considered the favorite. The team is very well-coordinated in defense and efficiently implements its chances at the opponent’s goal.
Serbia lacks variability in the attacking zone. In our opinion, this factor will be the main one in determining the winner of the meeting. When teams of about the same level meet, little things decide everything. We are inclined to believe that there will be more such trifles in favor of the Norwegian national team in the upcoming confrontation. That is why they will step further.
Our prediction is the passage of the Norwegian national team. In the Marathon bookmaker, you can play the current outcome with a coefficient of 1.73.
