Norway is having unsuccessful results in 2017. They already lost their chances to book a ticket to Russia. Besides, Norway collected only four points from the opening six matches. In fact, head coach Per-Mathias Hogmo was relieved of his duties after just taking three points from the first four games of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. Former Sweden and Iceland boss Lars Lagerback took the position as a coach. In his first game, Norway was lost to Northern Ireland with 2-0 score and ended the hopes of reaching the tournament finals. Despite of losing the game, the team showed improvement in their following game. In their last game against Czech Republic they pulled a 1-1 draw with Alexander Soderlund being the only scorer in the game.
Sweden is now four-match winning run and they will try to make it five wins in a row when they face their rivals Norway at Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo. They managed to win against France with unexpected 2-1 victory that got them up to the first place in Group A. Not many predicted Sweden to play this much after a disappointing Euro 2016 tournament where they failed to give Zlatan Ibrahimovic a worth send off for his departure.
Norway will be very motivated to end the pour run at home court having an energetic vibes and team improvements but Sweden will be looking to extend their excellent winning streaks.
Sweden to win 2.40 (this odd might change)
