This week, one of the most exciting duels will be played at UllevÄl Stadium, where Norway and Netherlands will measure their strength.

Norway started these qualifiers with an impressive 3-0 victory over Gibraltar, followed by a disappointing defeat by Turkey with the same result (0-3), but the Norwegians quickly got back on track, beating Montenegro by a minimum of 1-0 in the third qualifying match, but this week they face a real test, where they will try to surprise their opponent with their star Erling Halland.

As for their opponent, the Netherlands suffered a heavy defeat by Turkey 2-4 in the opening of these qualifiers, but after that, victories over Latvia 2-0 and Gibraltar 7-0 in the next two rounds followed. However, after eliminating the Czech Republic at EURO 2020, Frank de Boer resigned, and his function was taken over by the experienced Louis van Gaal, who will want to create a new era.

Norway looks strong in the offensive, especially at home, where they failed to score in just one of the previous 22 home games in all competitions. The Netherlands were also impressive in front of goals, especially on the road, where they scored 15 goals in the previous 5 away games, so they will certainly stick to their strong attack. Under the leadership of the new manager Louis van Gaal, The Oranje will take all the spoils from this visit, so we have goals on both sides of the field on the menu.
