Norway vs GeorgiaEuro 2024, KO: 19:45 Sep 12, 2023, Ullevaal Stadium, Oslo
NORWAY and Georgia's European Championship qualifier on Tuesday will be the centre of attention for 50,000 fans across the North Sea.
Runaway group leaders Scotland are on the brink of qualifying for Germany and a draw in Oslo would be enough to send Scotland to the Euros while they entertain England in a friendly at Hampden.
But for these two nations, it will be a painful reminder of what might have been.
Norway are only two points behind Spain but have played a game more. They do still have to host them in Oslo.
But losing those two late killer goals against Scotland in the summer has surely knocked the stuffing right out of them.
They did hammer Jordan 6-0 in a friendly last week where they were even able to rest Erling Haaland, but only a win will do here.
Georgia have been viewed as dark horses, but their bubble was well and truly burst by a sensational Spanish side who walloped them 7-1 in Tbilisi on Friday.
The former Soviet nation do at least have the Nations Legue play-off route as a fall back for qualification and that looks their best bet now.
How the bookies view it
Norway are huge 1/3 favourites here with Betfred.
Recent head to heads
Georgia held Norway to a 1-1 draw earlier this year in Batumi in what was something of a surprise. Norway have triumped in both of the previous meetings before that.
Players to watch
Manchester City goal machine Erling Haaland will go into this fully rested and determined to try and regain some pride for his country. He is just 4/7 to score anytime with bet365.
Watford midfielder Giorgi Chakvetadze netted his country's consolation goal against Spain on Friday and the on-loan Gent star is 14/1 with bet365 to net on Tuesday.
Anything else catch the eye?
Norway should have too much firepower here for a Georgia side who clearly have defensive issues as Spain showed.
While the Norwegians aren't anywhere near the class of Spain, they should win this comfortably, although they do concede plenty of goals too.
Haaland should be in the thick of the action and he could get plenty of joy here after being rested last week. Back him to score a brace at least at 9/4 with bet365.
