Ulleval Stadion will host Friday’s football game between Norway and Austria, who face each other at the start of the new UEFA Nations League campaign.
Norway and Austria return to international action on Friday evening with a UEFA Nations League encounter in Oslo.
These two nations are joined in Group B1 by Romania and Northern Ireland, with the four teams all vying for promotion to the top tier of the competition.
The Norwegians failed to secure automatic qualification to the European Championship finals. The Austrians, on the other hand, did well to qualify for the Euro after missing out on a place at the FIFA World Cup.
Reason for Norway vs. Austria predictions:
- Norway are unbeaten in 15 matches at home, winning 10 and drawing the other five.
- Both teams scored in 70% of Norway’s last 10 fixtures.
- Austria scored at least once in seven of their last 10 games.
Norway were beaten just once in 10 European Championships qualification tussles last year. Austria found the net in all but three of their 10 ECQ matches in 2019. Their return of just four clean sheets from the same assignments points to a slight weakness that Norway will feel.
Norway are unbeaten at home in 15 matches since 2016, scored two or more goals in four of their last five matches Oslo can push for victory.
After qualifying for Euro 2020, Austria should come into the game with a great deal of confidence, but the fact that they’re missing a number of key players while Norway appear to have a full-strength squad will probably be concerning to them. With 20-year-old Erling Haaland – who scored 13 goals in 15 games for Borussia Dortmund in terrifying form right now.
All things considered, this is an evenly-matched contest which could go either way.
Our prediction: Yes (Both Teams To Score) @ 1.83
