Norway vs Greece

, KO: 18:00 Jun 6, 2021, Estadio La Rosaleda

Norway are seeking their third straight win across all competitions as they face Greece in an international friendly at Estadio la Rosaleda. The Norwegians have been on the rise in recent times but Greece are usually a hard nut to crack and should earn a share of the spoils.

Erling Haaland's 92nd minute effort proved to be the difference as Norway earned a 1-0 victory over Luxembourg in their previous friendly. They were solid in defence, ensuring their opponents had no attempts on target.

Stale Solbakken's men have impressed in recent weeks, with three wins from their last four matches. That run has been driven by a sturdy defence that has kept clean sheets in three of their last four fixtures across all competitions.

While Norway possess some attacking quality with Erling Haaland and Alexander Sorloth, they often struggle to create clear cut openings. They have failed to score more than one goal in six of their last seven matches across all competitions.

Greece will be feeling confident after holding Belgium to a 1-1 draw in their previous fixture. They fought back from a goal down with Georgios Tzavellas getting the equaliser midway through the second half.

The Greeks have built a reputation as one of the more compact teams in Europe as they are often difficult to break down. They currently on a nine-match unbeaten run, although four of the last five have ended in draws.

Greece are not blessed with an abundance of attacking quality, so manager John Van’t Schip often sets his team up to be solid in defence. They give away few goalscoring opportunities and have held their own against attacks from Spain and Belgium.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Norway as favourites with a home win priced at 5/4 by Sporting Index. A victory for Greece is priced at 45/17 by SBK while a draw is set at odds of 9/4 with Skybet.

Greece have a knack for frustrating teams and can hold out for a draw against the Norwegians.

Head to head

There have been five previous matches between Norway and Greece with both teams claiming two wins each and one draw. The Greeks claimed a 3-2 win in the most recent meeting between both teams back in 2012.

Players to watch

While Norway possess quality in their attack, their recent form has been driven by a solid defence that has kept clean sheets in three of their last four matches. Kristoffer Ajer and Stefan Strandberg often partner at centre-back and will be hoping for a repeat at 8/5 with BoyleSport.

Greece often make themselves hard to break down and will take confidence from their defensive display against Belgium. Kyriakos Papadopoulos and Georgios Tzavellas are their preferred centre-back pairing and they will look to keep a clean sheet at 11/4 with Skybet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Norway and Greece are solid at the back and could be backed to produce under 2.5 goals at 4/6 with Skybet. The Norwegians could be tipped to score under 1.5 goals at 8/13 with Red Zone while Greece are priced at 6/17 by Sport Nation in the same market.

There are unlikely to be goals in both halves at 5/6 with betfair while both teams could be backed to not score at 8/9 with Vbet.
