Celtic duo Kristoffer Ajer and Mohamed Elyounoussi could help their country Norway take a big step towards Euro 2020 on Tuesday evening.

The pair could have a part to play as Lars Lagerback’s men travel to qualification rivals Romania. The Norwegians, who are unbeaten in six matches, probably have to beat their opponents to stand a chance of qualification for next summer’s tournament but their final two fixtures mean that a win could give them a good opportunity.

Ajer was part of the side that earned a dramatic 1-1 draw with Spain on Saturday while Elyounoussi was an unused substitute.


Celtic pair still stand a chance with Norway

Norway currently sit fourth in Group F, four points behind Sweden and three behind Romania. If they win in Bucharest they will move ahead of the hosts and could cut the gap on Sweden who host Spain.

Norway’s final two matches of the campaign see them host the Faroe Islands and then travel to Malta in what looks like two very winnable matches. With Sweden travelling to Romania next month, nine points from nine could well be enough for Ajer and Elyounoussi.

And the pair will have a rather familiar face in charge of Tuesday’s clash. Scottish referee Bobby Madden will be referee for the hotly anticipated fixture.
