Worth mentioning: Norway recorded an all-out 5-1 away win against Norhtern Ireland in September. You have only lost one of the last eleven encounters and three of the last twenty. Only one of the last seven clashes in Norway has resulted in a win for the host country, and this coincides with the only occasion the teams playing at home have scored more than one goal, as they each scored exactly one of the six goals. Four of the country’s last five games have scored more than 2.5 goals and in four cases both teams involved have hit the back of the nets. The loss to Austria was the first home loss since 2016, when Norway lost to Germany 16 games in Oslo before.
Serbia couldn’t beat Turkey when the two nations met in September as the game ended in a boring goalless draw. The Serbs have not won three games in a row, have drawn two and lost to Russia. This defeat is the only one in Serbia’s last seven games, but their defensive problems have been exposed and the team have conceded one goal in twelve of their last fourteen games. All but one of the last five meetings in Serbia had more than 2.5 goals, and each of those goals also witnessed goals at both ends.
