Norway 1-0

Reason for tip

Norway have scored one goal or fewer in five of their last six internationals, managing more than one strike in a game only only three of their last ten outings. Scotland are defensively mean, but failed to score in two of their three away Nations League matches.

Erling Braut Haaland To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Haaland scored 51 goals in 53 games for Manchester City last season and his overall record for his country is none too shabby either with 21 goals from 23 caps. He has found the net six times in his last six appearances for Norway.

Scots face acid test in Oslo

Scotland’s mean defensive record will be put to the test in Oslo on Saturday when Steve Clarke’s side come up against the most feared forward in football right now.

Fresh from serving up a ridiculous tally of 52 goals in 53 club matches for Manchester City, Erling Haaland attempts to haul Norway back into contention in Group A of Euro 2024 qualifying.

The Lions got off to an awful start, losing 3-0 away to Spain before failing in their quest to take all three points in Georgia.

Assuming the Spanish eventually come through to win the group, this clash could be key in deciding the second-placed qualifier and the Scots hold a five-point edge at the moment.

Treble-winner Haaland hunting more goals

Haaland’s overall record for his country is none too shabby either with 21 goals from 23 caps, but Norway have not been putting up prolific numbers of late.

Stale Solbakken’s side have scored more than once in a game on only three of the last ten occasions they have played – with the Treble-winner involved in six of those matches.

His absence from their two Euro 2024 qualifiers in March was felt, but Norway’s displays were also marked by defensive issues and a lack of leadership on foreign fields.

That said, they should fare better now back on Norwegian soil – where they have lost only once in their last ten home games.

Clarke’s charges nothing special on the road

Scotland’s away record is also fairly unconvincing with their five road wins from the last 15 trips coming at places such as Armenia, Moldova, the Faroe Islands and Luxembourg. They won a World Cup qualifier in Austria and then drew away to the same opponents in a friendly last year, but have since lost 3-0 in Dublin and 2-1 to Turkey.

Confidence will be high in the visitors’ camp after their sensational success against Spain, but they still do not have a proven goalscorer at this level and will need midfielders and defenders to chip in when they can.

Norway are a little too short at a shade of odds-on for the victory, but backing both teams not to score has merit based on both nations’ records and a 1-0 home win is worth a tickle in correct score markets.

Scotland have kept better teams than Norway in check, but they will have to be at their very best to pass the Haaland exam.
