This Saturday, June 10, 2017 (11:45 AM Pacific) Norway will host the Czech Republic at the Ullevaal Stadion in a UEFA World Cup qualifier. Both teams are in a contested battle in Group C of the qualifiers and will be looking for the win.
Norway has struggled in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, currently in fifth with three points in Group C. The lone win for the Nordic side came against San Marino where they won 4-1, but besides that have suffered four losses. Norway does count with players who militate all over Europe, this includes a few players who play in England like Havard Nordtveit of West Ham, Stefan Johansen of Fulham and Markus Henriksen of Hull City. The match should be a hard-fought duel with a 2-1 victory for the Czech Republic being the result the last time the two teams faced each other.
The Czech Republic is right up there with the top teams in Group C looking for a spot in the 2018 World Cup, currently in third with eight points. The Central European side is coming off consecutive victories in the qualifiers, having beaten Lithuania 3-0 and Norway 2-1. The Czech Republic does have a lot of players who play domestically but also counts with players who play in the Bundesliga and Serie A. One of the more intriguing players on the roster is 21-year-old forward, Patrik Schick who plays with Sampdoria in the Serie A. The match should be a contested duel with both teams having similar quality of players but the Czech Republic will be the slight favorite heading into the clash.
