NOR Vs SER Fantasy Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Riveting encounter awaits us today as either side strives to return to the tournament after a hiatus of 20 years.
Today’s Part C semi-final in the Euro qualification round is going to be a humdinger. When Norway and Serbia take on each other today, we are going to be for a goal scoring feast, an attacking euphoria between two sides looking to return to the land of Euro for the first time since 2000.
Norway were extremely unfortunate to not qualify directly for them qualification group. Despite remaining unbeaten in 9 of their 10 affairs in the group, the side ended up in third place with an inability to break free off deadlocks seeing them take the arduous route towards sealing their berth in next year’s marquee tournament.
However, despite that massive setback, the side makes a foray into today’s clash with a solid chance of making it to the final. The team has not lost 10 of its last 11 fixtures, hitting on an average 3 goals in every single of those contests in the process.
Despite their emphatic form, Norway will be wary when they play host to Serbia today. Serbia are a pulsating attacking juggernaut, a side which finished third in its qualification group as well with the side hitting 17 goals in the group.
However, what is a major cause of concern for them is their defence. This is a leaky backline, one which will crumble under the brunt of Norway’s attack.

NOR Vs SER Fantasy Team Picks
With a measly two cleansheets in their last 14 matches, Serbia know they have a real task on their hands. However, if there’s anyone who can help register a cleansheet for them, it’s the tenacious Marko Dmitrovic to see him hammer his place in our side.
For all of Serbia’s plight when defending, Aleksandar Kolarov is someone who we just can’t leave out of our setup. The fullback is someone who has assiduously made his presence felt in the side’s attacking ventures, a name who searing runs down the flanks make him a must have pick.
Norway on the other hand see us immerse in the pick of a duo. Its one made up of the guile filled and plucky Haitam Aleesami and Omar Elabdellaoui, two names capable of embedding in place a string of tackles and blocks.
For Serbia, attack is going to be the name of the game today. With the team being traditionally oblivious to defence, the side will come out hammer and tongs in attack as they look to exert the gamut of their worldclass attacking names.
And one such player is Dusan Tadic, a name capable of not only popping up with a peach of a goal but also laying up the ball for his counterparts. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic links up with him, a player who had a solid season with Lazio in Serie A 2019-20.
Norway on the other hand see us immerse in the services of a duo as well. It’s one comprising of the flair filled Martin Odegaard and Stefan Johansen, players whose gambits when moving forward making them untenable players.
Just 3 goals short of becoming Norway’s top scorer, Aleksandar Mitrovic who has a staggering 35 goals to his name for his country makes for a must have pick for us. Elsewhere, the home side’s reply to Mitrovic, Erling Haaland was an instant selection for us as well, a player who has burst onto the global stage in the space of the last one year.
We are pairing him up with Alexander Sorloth, two players set to run rings around Serbia’s paper thin defence.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 33 goals in his last 35 clashes, Haaland will captain our side while Haaland is the vice-captain.
Dmitrovic, Omar, Kolarov, Aleesami, Tadic, Odegaard, Johansen, Sergej, Mitrovic, Sorloth, Haaland
