Its just a friendly match where result comes in second plan, so i expect open attacking football from both sides here. Macedonia once again will probably go with a little more offensive minded formation with 4 players back, instead of duo Zajkov & Musliu which played vs Liechtenstein now probably we will see Darko Velkovski and Zajkov because Musliu is injured. In midfield there wont be Ademi and Gjorgjiev but they are not first lineup options and Macedonian national coach have wide range of players there like Bardhi, Alioski, Nikolov, Spirovski also good thing is that Ferhan Hasani is back in team and he is player with very good dribbling and passing (ass) skills important for offensive line. In the attack Nestorovski is out (Palermo requested to be rested) so its expected to trio Pandev (Genoa), Trajkovski (Palermo) and Trickovski (AEK Larnaca) start this match but also its possible to some time get Marjan Radevski. Overall i can say that Macedonia have solid attacking line and midfield but average-to-weak defense and GK (only Stefan RIstovski - Benfica make some difference there) and i think Macedonia will have some problems with the defense, expecially because our GK weakest side are high balls which is Norway main "weapon". Norway on the other side also have many missings, some players who were called for this match "didnt accept" the invite from coach because of injuries, out are Elabdellaoui and Aleesami (both defense) also in midfield there wont be Johansen (Fulham) while in attack Joshua King and Tarik Elyounoussi will miss too. Its expected to Lagerback keep his 4-4-2 formation with Soderlund and some of Kamara or Sorloth in attack as centre forwards.
