Pick: Both Teams to Score NO

Preview: It highlights the strides made by the Norwegians that they went into the pair’s first Group B4 encounter as marginal favourites, despite being the away team on that instance. Stale Solbakken’s improving charges will boast a home following behind them when the sides reconvene in Oslo, with Norway keen to bolster their slender advantage atop Group B4. Sweden must win to stay in the promotion hunt.

Norway – Lions to roar once more?

After winning their opening two in Nations League Group B4, Norway were building up ahead of steam and expected to brush a Slovenia side that had sustained successive losses aside in Oslo with relative ease last time. Instead Stale Solbakken’s men were left hugely frustrated with a 0-0 draw that halted their winning streak at four, but does at least keep them unbeaten in five as well as a point clear atop their group.

Chances came and went on Thursday evening, with the normally ruthless Haaland – the new Man City forward had netted in his eight previous international outings – not capable of producing a man-winning performance on this occasion. Which was unlike when these side met on 5 June, when his brace earned the Norwegians a 2-1 victory that represented their first win on Swedish soil for 84 years.

Key Stat: Thursday’s goalless draw with Slovenia earned Norway their sixth clean sheet in eight internationals, while another on Sunday would be a sixth in a row at home.


Norway Win To Nil



Sweden – Must-win outing for group’s bottom side?

The pressure was on Sweden as they prepared to take on Serbia in Solna on Matchday 3, knowing only a win would keep them within striking distance of the Norwegians who had begun with real intent in Group B4. What transpired, though, was another flat performance from Janne Andersson’s out-of-form charges. That a fifth defeat in their past seven internationals, leaving them four adrift of the top in this UNL section.

It almost goes without saying that if Sweden are to retain any promotion aspirations, they simply have to avenge the 2-1 loss incurred at home to Norway seven days ago. However, aside from a 2-0 success in Slovenia to begin this Nations League season, this is not a team that has travelled well of late. Eight of the past 11 away internationals resulted in defeat (W2 D1), failing to score six times in this period.

Key Stat: Both Teams to Score NO has returned a winning bet in six of the last seven away internationals for Sweden, who were beaten ‘to nil’ in three of these games.

Norway Vs Sweden Betting Advice

Having backed the draw seven days ago, I couldn’t help but be impressed by Norway’s victory in Sweden – their first away H2H win since 1938! It was a tight contest though, settled by the best player in either team, Erling Haaland. He had a quiet evening in midweek and he doesn’t string too many of them together. Both teams strengths, however, reside in their ability to restrict the flow of chances conceded.


Norway Vs Sweden – Key Facts:

  • In Solna last Saturday, Norway produced their first H2H victory for 17 years. Erling Haaland with both goals in a 2-1 win – the fourth successive meeting to see both teams score.
  • Norway are the form team. Thursday’s 0-0 draw at home to Slovenia made it no defeat in five (W4 D1), last beaten in a home international by Greece in June 2021 (W4 D3 thereafter).
  • Sweden are enduring a troubling period. Their 1-0 loss at home to Serbia on Thursday marked a fifth defeat in seven, losing eight of their last 11 away internationals (W2 D1).


Both teams found the net when they met recently, scoring three between them from a combined 11 shots on target. That was an uncharacteristically poor defensive display from the pair. That was only the second match in Norway’s last eight in which they conceded; keeping five consecutive clean sheets as hosts. Meanwhile Sweden would both score and concede in one of their last nine and six of the past seven away.
