As it’s said in local parlance, thank God it’s Friday!
Traditionally, Friday ushers in a weekend of football frenzy across the world, but this Friday offers little club football actions as a result of the FIFA international break.
In observing the international break, top European leagues are on hold for the UEFA Nations League. However, other lower leagues, including top African and Asian leagues are in action.
Nigerian born Austrian defender, David Alaba will be in action for his adopted country, Austria in their tricky away tie against the former Super Eagles manager Lars Lagerbäck coached Norway at Ullevål Stadion in Oslo.
Norway won League C3 in the UEFA Nations League (UNL) last time around and start this edition against League B1 favourites Austria amid a nine-match unbeaten run (W4, D5). Indeed, since manager Lars Lagerbäck took charge in 2017, Norway have an unbeaten rate of 79.21% across 29 matches, while he’s never lost against Austria as a manager (W2, D2).
Clean sheets, however, have been rare, with seven of their last ten featuring both scoring. Norway struck the first goal in seven of those matches, but the action has been mostly late on.
Austria, meanwhile, were disappointed to finish second in League B3 last time around, but come into this match having won six of their last eight matches (D1, L1). Four of the six wins featured at least three goals, but it’s worth noting that their last three matches outside Austria have all featured just one goal or less.
Four of Austria’s last five defeats actually came away from home, with four of the five seeing them fail to trouble the scoreboard.
Elsewhere, in Egypt, Junior Ajayi will be on Egyptian Premier League duty for leaders Al Ahly as they play host to Wadi Degla at the Cairo International Stadium.
Al Ahly are in the driving seat of the Egyptian Premier League table with 62 points, 17 points over nearest challengers Pyramids and Zamalek.
The Cairo giants will start the game with big ambitions after they returned to winning ways in the league defeating Gouna 1-0 and Masry 2-0 after losing to Zamalek 3-1 in the Egyptian Premier League last month.
Wadi Degla are 10th in the table with 26 points after playing 23 games so far this season. The visitor’s only win against Al Ahly was their 1-0 victory in May of 2016 [P16, L12, D3].
Also taking place are the qualification matches for the 2021 UEFA Euro U21 finals to be co-hosted by Hungary and Slovenia.
