While most of Europe tries to figure out how to stop Erling Haaland, the Norwegian is about to face one of the few opponents with whom he has a score to settle.

Since the start of last season, 29 clubs have tried and failed to stop Haaland scoring in the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, Champions League and Premier League. There was, however, one very notable successful attempt — by the Slovenia national team.

The unthinkable occurred on June 9, in the third group game of the UEFA Nations League, League B. Haaland played 90 minutes and Norway registered 18 goal attempts, five shots on target and one against the crossbar. The game ended goalless.

“The stat means that we played quite well in our last game. On the defensive end, I remember we were good, but also tactically the team was at a high level. It also means that Haaland might not score in every game he plays,” Slovenia manager Matjaz Kek told The Athletic before his reunion with the 22-year-old striker.

Slovenia host Norway on Saturday in the fourth match of their group. Norway are top with 10 points and a win would leave them on the brink of becoming group champions. This will be Haaland’s first international appearance since he made his Manchester City debut.

“Now the situation has changed from last time we met. With the way he has started the season with Manchester City, we expect a really tough match,” said Kek, who believes the striker’s move to the Premier League provides him with a stage to become the world’s best footballer. “He is still a very young player but the Premier League is going to be a new experience for him and a good platform to develop into the best player in Europe, or maybe even in the world. Working with a manager such as Pep Guardiola will make him better.”
