Serbia Vs Norway Tips and Prediction
Serbia has been preparing for the next World Cup finals in Qatar after snatching automatic qualification away from Portugal in dramatic circumstances late in stoppage time of their final Group A encounter.
Following mixed fortunes in their springtime friendlies, the Eagles are back in competitive play, six months after Aleksandar Mitrovic’s last-gasp goal in Lisbon. The Eagles have 20 points from their eight qualifying ties, three clear at the top of the table.
Dragan Stojkovic’s team upset Hungary by an own goal in March, then traveled to Denmark to face fellow World Cup finalists Denmark, coming in Copenhagen on the back of a seven-game unbeaten streak.
They struggled to cope with a clinical home team in a chastening 3-0 defeat, which was a test of their credentials as contenders for a place in the knockout stage. Comeback youngster Christian Eriksen was among the scores in a chastening 3-0 defeat.
Serbia, who will be in Group A alongside Brazil, Cameroon, and Switzerland at this winter’s global group, won only one of their previous six Nations League matches, and will be hoping to get off to a better start in their first four games, which will take place over the next fortnight.
Norway has a similarly crowded post-season schedule in June, as the Nordic nation faces local rivals Sweden both at home and away, as well as hosting Slovenia in between.
Stale Solbakken’s side, on the other hand, will not be preparing to play on the game’s biggest stage, having finished last in World Cup qualification Group G and, despite the emergence of a potential generation, have failed to reach the finals since 1998.
The Lions finished third in a three-way tie for first place with the Netherlands and Turkey, and a startling lack of firepower – given an assault that had Erling Haaland, Alexander Sorloth, and captain Martin Odegaard – ultimately cost them dearly: Norway’s final two games went without scoring.
They did, however, only conced eight times in the process, averaging less than a goal per game, and were similarly stingy in their previous Nations League campaign.
Serbia has not lost at home since the end of 2020, and with the fight for spots heating up ahead of an interesting winter in the Middle East, they should be at their best on Thursday.
While Norway’s current crop is undoubtedly their most talented in decades, few teams in Belgrade impose terms, thus the visitors’ Nations League campaign could be doomed from the start.
