Norway are set to keep their hopes of qualifying for Euro 2020 alive when they host struggling Faroe Islands at Ullevaal Stadion. Norway have a good home record and should claim a comfortable win over a poor Faroe Islands team.

Norway Form

Norway played out a 1-1 draw against Romania in their last qualifying fixture in October. Having gone behind in the second half, Alexander Sorloth came off the bench to score a 92nd minute equaliser.

The Norwegians need a win to keep alive their hopes of qualifying as they sit four points behind Sweden in second place. Lars Lagerback's men will be happy to return to Oslo where they are unbeaten in their last 14 matches in all competitions.

Norway News

Salzburg striker Erling Haaland has earned a call up to the national team following an impressive campaign which has seen him score 26 goals across all competitions this season. With Martin Odegaard ruled out through injury, the striker is likely to start in attack alongside Joshua King who has scored four times in the qualifiers.
