This is one of the highlights of the final round of the UEFA Nations League. Group leader Norway will play second place Serbia.
Despite the equal points, a draw would have been enough for the hosts after their (1-0) success in the first leg, however Norwegian fans are likely to be nervous considering their country lost (1-2) against Slovenia in the last leg .
It is noteworthy that earlier Norway managed to avoid failures. The team scored 3 wins and drew once, and also defeated the Swedes twice (2-1, 3-2).
Only Slovenia did not succumb to the owners. In addition to the defeat in head-to-head matches with this opponent, the Norwegians had a goalless draw. At home, Norway perform well, having a run of 6 matches without defeat.
A four-match unbeaten streak after a minor loss to Norway left the visitors in a strong position to achieve this goal.
Serbia is very serious. Defeating Sweden (4-1), she got a great chance to compete for promotion.
Previously, the Serbian national team already had a similar victory with a big score, when they beat Slovenia (4-1), and after that they beat Sweden (1-0).
No less effective outcome is a draw with the Slovenes with a score of 2:2. Despite being second in the group, Serbia has the highest number of goals scored (11) and the difference is +6.
