Sweden vs Norway prediction comes before the fifth round matchup of Euro Cup qualification of Group F. This game will be played on Sunday, September 8th, at Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two teams.
Sweden vs Norway Betting Tips
These two teams play in Group F, where Spain are topping the table. That’s not surprising, considering that Spain are the number 1 favorites for finishing the qualification on the top of the group table. The big question is which team is going to be second? Right now, both Sweden and Norway are in the competition for the second place, as well as Romania.
What this means is that for these teams, every match matters. And that is something that promises an interesting duel on the weekend. Add to that the fact that these two Scandinavian countries are sporting rivals and you can expect a really big spectacle.
Actually, most of their recent duels were pretty close matches. The previous time they played was in March when Norway were the hosts. The score in that game was 3:3, with plenty of interesting moments throughout the match. For instance, Sweden captain Granqvist missed a penalty, while Denmark got the equalizer with a goal in the seventh minute of the stoppage time.
The last time these two met in Sweden, we saw six goals as well. Sweden won that game 4:2, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a hat-trick. Of course, Ibra is not in the squad anymore, but Sweden have plenty of good players to cover for him. But, most importantly, Sweden have great team chemistry, playing fantastic as a team. It’s a similar case when Norway players are concerned, something which they showed in every qualifier so far. They beat Faroe Islands, played draws with Romania and Sweden, and lost only 2:1 in Spain.
Although Sweden are the favorites here, beating Norway is not going to be easy. In fact, they’ll have to work very hard to get all three points. And considering that Norway have scored in every single qualifier they played so far, keeping a clean sheet will be a huge challenge for the home team.

Sweden Form and Latest News
The last match Sweden played was in June against Spain. It was played in Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu and the final score was 3:0 for the hosts. That wasn’t a major surprise not only because Spain are one of the best teams on the planet, but also because Sweden are famous as being poor on the road. Instead, this team plays best when in front of their own crowd.
