While the hosts only narrowly avoided relegation to the third tier of the UEFA Nations League in September, the visitors finished three points adrift of group winners Serbia.

Although Stephen Kenny has delivered just seven victories from 28 matches as Republic of Ireland head coach, there have been occasions in recent games when they have shown real signs of progress.

That appeared to be pefect timing ahead of the qualification stages for Euro 2024 until the Boys in Green were drawn in a group alongside France and the Netherlands.

However, Kenny has to view the situation as an opportunity to further develop a young crop of players, and another four uncapped youngsters have been selected for their upcoming double-header.

The 51-year-old will be eager to extend a strong period of form at their home turf with their only defeat in nine matches in Dublin coming against Ukraine.

With Erling Braut Haaland in their ranks, Norway would have been confident of topping their own Nations League group ahead of Serbia, Sweden and Slovenia.

After four games, everything was on track with 10 points coming from four matches, but closing the group with defeats to Slovenia and Serbia cost them.

Prior to that defeat, Stale Solbakken’s side had lost just once in 13 matches across all competitions, an indication that they can become a force in Euro 2024 qualifying.

A group alongside Spain, Scotland, Georgia and Cyprus gives Norway every chance of a top-two spot, but they will first want to end their year on a positive note and on a high with a game against Scandinavian neighbours Finland following on Sunday.

Republic of Ireland vs. Norway Head to head

These two nations have previously met on eight occasions across all competitions, where Ireland have claimed one victory while Norway have won three, and they have drawn in four. Norway have scored 10 goals and conceded eight. In their last five meetings, they have each won once while drawing three.
