Sweden vs Norway

, KO: 19:45 Jun 5, 2022, Friends Arena
Norway

An all-Scandinavian battle in Group B4 of the UEFA Nations League sees Sweden square off against neighbours Norway. Both teams won their opening fixtures in the competition and look evenly matched heading into Sunday’s clash.

Sweden began their UEFA Nations League campaign with a 2-0 win over Slovenia. Emil Forsberg struck first from the spot just before the break while Dejan Kulusevski added the second two minutes from time.

Beyond the win, the manner of the performance will be pleasing to manager Janne Andersson as they made light work of a tricky Slovenian side. The result means the Swedes have claimed two wins from their last three matches across all competitions.

Sweden have been near perfect at home lately and head into Sunday’s clash on a five-match winning run in front of their fans. They have claimed some major scalps in their recent outings, the biggest of which was a 2-1 victory over Spain.

Norway were also victorious in their opening fixture in the UNL as they won 1-0 in Serbia. They were made to work hard for the win with Erling Haaland’s effort midway through the first half proving to be the difference.

Manager Stale Solbakken will be pleased with the win as it leaves Norway setting the early pace in the group alongside the Swedes. The result also means they have now won their last three matches across all competitions.

Things are just as smooth for Norway on their travels where they have lost just once in their last seven away matches. They have claimed four wins in that run but have also been held to stalemates by the likes of Turkey and Austria.

How the bookies view it

Sweden have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 11/10 by Betfred to claim the win. A victory for Norway is valued at 14/5 by SBK, who are also offering odds of 11/5 for a draw.

Head to head

There has been little to separate Sweden and Norway in recent matches as they have drawn their last four meetings. The most recent fixture between both teams was a Euro 2020 qualifier at the Friends Arena which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Players to watch

Following his goal last time out, Dejan Kulusevski is expected to continue in attack for Sweden alongside Alexander Isak and Emil Forsberg. All three men can ensure the Swedes find the net on Sunday at 2/9 with Paddy Power.

Erling Haaland may have been the difference last time out but Norway boast plenty of attacking options in the team. The likes of Joshua King and Alexander Sorloth also carry a major goal threat and with all three men expected to feature on Sunday, the Norwegians are likely get on the score sheet at 1/2 with Paddy Power.

Anything else catch the eye?

A 3-3 draw in 2019 is among the results in recent meetings between Sweden and Norway and another thrilling encounter could be on the cards. Over 3.5 goals could be considered at 17/5 with BetVictor while over 2.5 goals priced at 5/4 with Unibet. William Hill is offering evens on both teams to score.

Sweden and Norway appear evenly matched at the moment and with a tight and cagey opening expected, the second half is likely to produce the most goals at 6/5 with Paddy Power.
