Something of a local derby taking place at the Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo on Tuesday, with Sweden likely to come into this game off the back of a win over Romania.

Conversely, the Norwegians are likely to have suffered defeat in Spain and will therefore need to avoid defeat or risk losing ground on the leading two teams in Group F.

Ultimately, the Spanish are expected to qualify for Euro 2020 with something to spare, which means that there is one place up for grabs and Norway haven’t qualified for a European Championship since 2000 where they went out at the group stage.

Lars Lagerback is the man tasked with restoring some glory and he’s well known in Sweden for managing the national team, with the manager now coming up against some of his former players.

Norway did pretty well in the Nations League Group C and won their particular section, finishing ahead of Bulgaria, Cyprus and Slovenia and winning four of their six matches.

It was noticeable that they only conceded two goals in the six games and they should be capable of keeping things tight against a Swedish side who are often found wanting in the goals department.

Sweden are in a good moment after not only qualifying for the 2018 World Cup but also reaching the quarter final stage of the competition and Janne Andersson will be confident that he can get the team qualified for their sixth consecutive European Championship.

It’s pretty much the same group of players that were part of last summer’s World Cup expedition, with Sweden winning their Nations League group ahead of Russia and Turkey which continues the positive vibe.

On this occasion, they might settle for a draw against a relatively tough team who are improved under their latest manager and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a low-scoring encounter.
