World Cup 2022: Norway vs Montenegro preview, team news, prediction and tips
October 10


Norway will welcome Montenegro to the Ullevaal Stadion in the 2022 World Cup qualifying Group G matchday 8 on Monday. The kick-off is at 20:45 CEST.


Even without their key striker Erling Haaland in the squad due to an injury, Norway managed to fight back a 1-1 draw in Turkey on Friday with Kristian Thorstvedt cancelling Kerem Akturkoglu's opener in Istanbul. That stalemate means that Stale Solbakken's men are still second in Group G with 14 points, two points behind leaders the Netherlands and two points ahead of the Turks who sit in third.

Montenegro, in turn, will travel to Oslo on the back of a 3-0 thrashing of Gibraltar on the same day - a victory that saw Miodrag Radulovic's side keeping the fourth spot in their WC qualifying group.

Team news

As mentioned, Haaland will play no part for Norway in October's qualifiers through an injury as well as Joshua King and Alexander Sorloth. Morten Thorsby, for his part, is suspended for the hosts in this one. Stefan Mugosa and midfielder Aleksandar Scekic, meanwhile, are unlikely to feature for the visitors after picking up minor injuries against Gibraltar.


As the Netherlands and Turkey will take on Latvia and Gibraltar on Sunday, Norway badly need to take all three points in this encounter to keep up with Oranje and leave the Crescent-Stars behind in the third place. It were Solbakken's crop who celebrated a 1-0 victory against Montenegro in the reverse fixture in March and it doesn't seem likely that the latter side are capable of gaining revenge on the Norwegians this time around, especially given the fact that Norway are yet to suffer a single defeat in the 2022 WC qualification.
