On Tuesday night, Norway play Gibraltar at home in Group G of the World Cup qualifiers in a game that the hosts are expected to win in a comfortable fashion.

Norway earned themselves a 2-0 win against Latvia on Saturday thanks to goals from Erling Haaland and Mohamed Elyounoussi in the same that they managed a 1-1 draw at home to the Netherlands in what was Louis van Gaal’s first game with the Dutch national side since the 2014 World Cup – in this match Haaland’s 20th-minute strike was cancelled out by Davy Klaassen’s 36th-minute equaliser.

Denmark host Israel on Tuesday night in Copenhagen, with Kasper Hjulmand’s side looking to once again show why everybody fell in love with their performances at Euro 2020.

The Danes have started life in Group F in sensational form, winning all five of their qualifiers so far, scoring 17 goals and conceding none. Last time out they narrowly beat the Faroe Islands 1-0 in what was a frustrating match for the Danes who had 19 shots and 80% of the ball, winning by Jonas Wind’s 85th-minute goal. Prior to this, the Euro 2020 semi-finalists had beaten Scotland 2-0, Austria 4-0, Moldova 8-0 and Israel 2-0.

Republic of Ireland vs Serbia: Serbia -1 Goal Handicap - 10/3

Republic of Ireland host Serbia at the Aviva Stadium with the hosts looking for what would be just their second win in 16 matches under the former Dundalk man.

In the opening match of qualifying Group A, Serbia ran out as 3-2 winners against the Republic of Ireland thanks to goals from Dusan Vlahovic of Fiorentina and an Aleksandar Mitrovic brace. In all truth in this game Ireland can count themselves as slightly fortunate to have scored from both of their efforts on target through Alan Browne and James Collins.

Since their defeat to Serbia, Ireland have endured a horrendous run of results, losing 1-0 at home to Luxembourg, drawing 1-1 with Qatar, losing 2-1 to Portugal via two late Cristiano Ronaldo goals, as well as needing an 87th-minute equaliser from Shane Duffy to rescue a point at home to Azerbaijan.

On the other hand, Serbia lead Group A ahead of the likes of Portugal having drawn 2-2 with them following their win against the Irish, before beating Azerbaijan 2-1 away from home and hammering Luxembourg 4-1 last time out thanks to goals from Mitrovic (2), an own goal by Maxime Chanot and a stoppage-time effort by Nikola Milenkovic. With at attacking front three of Mitrovic, Dusan Tadic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, there is every chance that the Serbs will cause Kenny’s side a lot of problems.
