In that match, Norway managed 34% possession and 12 shots at goal with 8 on target. The only player to score for Norway was Erling Haaland (20', 69'). On the other side, Sweden got 13 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Anthony Elanga (92') scored for Sweden.
Their more recent scorelines highlight the fact that there has been much resilience in the Norway backline. Norway have given the opposition little, seeing the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their last 6 clashes standing at 3. Let’s find out if that trend can be continued on in this game.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Serbia in Nations League competition, Slovenia and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Slovenia had 39% possession and 7 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player to score for Slovenia was Petar Stojanović (30'). At the other end, Serbia got 17 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. Aleksandar Mitrović (24'), Sergej Milinković-Savić (56'), Luka Jović (85') and Nemanja Radonjić (92') scored for Serbia.
The stats tell the story, and Slovenia have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 10 goals in all. In defence, Slovenia have seen their frailties exposed.
It’s likely that Slovenia will surely find it tough to get a goal against a Norway outfit who will more than likely control most aspects of this game.
We are anticipating a convincing 3-0 win for Norway by the conclusion of the match.
