Slovenia vs Norway

Preview

Slovenia can no longer achieve promotion, there is still a lot to do in their UEFA Nations League campaign as the threat of relegation grows big.

This threat could very well become a reality if Slovenia loses here and Sweden beats Serbia, a pair of results that would send them straight back to the C league at the first request.

Slovenia’s first foray into League B hasn’t been easy, but there have been signs of improvement lately, with two draws after two losses opening up their campaign.

One of those draws was with Norway (0-0), and while the silence of Erling Haaland is a small win in itself, it is the only time Slovenia have conceded less than two goals in a game this Nations League season.

Norway is known to be on the first line, gaining 10 points in four matches.

If Slovenia’s hopes for a promotion are futile, then Norway certainly isn’t, and they know they’ll be dining at the best football table next season if they improve Serbia’s record against Sweden.

It looks like it’s going to be a tense story here, with each of Norway’s three Nations League wins this season coming within a narrow margin of one goal.

A solid result against Slovenia only seems to fuel the belief that they won’t capitulate like this this season, but perhaps more importantly for Norway, a group win would also give them another potential chance to qualify. Euro 2024.
