As things stand, Norway need four points from their remaining two Group 4 matches in League B of the UEFA Nations League to confirm their promotion to League A. It has been a good ride so far and Norway will feel ready to join the big nations in a higher league. They go into Match Day 5 leading the group on 10 points, while their hosts Slovenia have two points, at the bottom of the group. Slovenia are battling to avoid relegation, but they have a very poor run coming into this game. They are winless in six matches, while their last 10 have produced just one win. In their last five matches, they’ve failed to score three times, and they’ve conceded two or more goals in three of the five. They are winless in their last two home matches and will hope to do better than the 0-0 draw they managed away to Norway.
Norway are in great form going into this game and one player that has really inspired the rise of the team is Erling Haaland, the Manchester City forward who is also the leading scorer in the Premier League. Haaland has scored seven times in Norway’s last five matches. Norway go into this game unbeaten in six matches and in four of them, they managed two or more goals. They have five wins and four clan sheets in the six matches and three of their last five games have produced over 2.5 goals. Norway have suffered just one loss in the last 10 matches – away to the Netherlands. In their 10 matches against Slovenia, Norway have suffered only one loss, while they’ve won six.
Norway will go into this game as favorites. While they play away, they will have the upper hand, boosted by the quality of players in their ranks. They’ve been scoring a lot and we expect them to stroll past Slovenia, who are winless in six matches. Go for Norway to win.
