That's all from me, Amee Ruszkai, but stay tuned for the report of tonight's game, and of course the build up to the rest of the Euro 2016 play-off action! Thank you for choosing to follow the game with VAVEL this evening.

Game over! That's it. Hungary take an away goal into their home leg! What a fantastic result for the visitors. Great game, great performance by the away side. Norway have a lot to do now but should not have lost that given the chances they had.

90+2 - Szalai comes off hobbling as Priskin enters the fray with Hungary's last change of the day.

90 - There will be four minutes of added time as Helland drills in another corner, which is headed over by Henriksen.

89 - Pedersen heads the resulting corner goalwards, but it's more than comfortable for Kiraly, directed right at him.

88 - BAR! Oh my how have Norway not scored! Kiraly makes a marvellous save to deny Johansen and then the rebound is headed onto the bar of an empty goal by Helland! Incredible.

87 - Hungary have been absolutely superb in the air today, with their defence not allowing the opposition anything from set pieces and crosses. However, it's long ball time for Norway.

86 - Skjelbred comes off for Helland with Norway's last throw of the dice. He looks to get on the end of Johansen's corner as he comes on, but Kiraly collects with ease.

85 - Norway really pushing for a goal here, but their play is much too desperate and rushed, understandably, and so chances are not being created. 

80 - Nemeth and Nagy looked to have hit a wall then getting the ball forward for the visitors, but the latter did brilliantly to burst past his man and to the by line on the right, only for his cut-back to be intercepted and cleared by Norway.

76 - Now Hungary make that change. Dzsudzsak hands the captain's armband to Gera as he is replaced by Lovrencsics.

75 - Another change by the hosts as Berget comes off for Elyounoussi. Hungary also readying another substitute.

73 - Decent chance for Norway as Pedersen heads over the bar. It was good defending from Fiola, who tracked the run of the attacker well and put him off enough in the end.

72 - Goal-scorer Kleinheisler is replaced by Nagy for Hungary.

71 - Kiraly doesn't hold this corner under pressure from two Norway players, but fortunately there are two Hungarian defenders on the line to clear. The resulting corner sees Skjelbred overdo his run into the box and it goes out of play for a goal-kick.

67 - Tettey fires goalwards after a corner was headed out only as far as him, but the shot hits Henriksen who is offside. Free-kick to Hungary.

65 - Elabdellaoui is booked for simulation after going to ground in the box. Replay looks like Elek caught him, but the fall was certainly delayed and slightly over the top. Had it been more natural, Clattenburg may have given a penalty. 

63 - Tettey drives down the right and forces a corner, which is again cleared. Norway getting no joy from set pieces as Hungary continue to defend well.

61 - First change of the evening is made by the hosts as Soderlund comes off for Pedersen.

60 - Nemeth tracks back and makes a superb tackle as Høgli looks to cross. Looked like it came off the Norway man last, but Hungary clear the corner with ease anyway.

58 - Another chance for Norway, but Soderlund can't sort his feet out as he fires over the bar with the volley.

57 - Norway race down the other end and Kadar, who has been booked too, has his hands full of Elabdellaoui's shirt, but perhaps he goes to ground too theatrically there as Clattenburg waves away penalty appeals from the hosts. Big shout that. 

56 - Hungary close to a second there! Dzsudzsak makes his way into the box brilliantly, but Nyland makes a good save to keep the score at just one.

53 - Hungary by no means on the ropes here, but been put under a lot of pressure as Norway look for a goal. 

50 - Good intensity and pace to Norway in these opening moments as Berget drives down the left but sees his attempts to cross blocked. Hungary defending well again and proving difficult to break down.

46 - Norway start on the front foot, winning a corner, but again Hungary defend well at it to clear.

Second half underway!

Half time. Hungary lead in Oslo is what has been a very even, well contested and entertaining first half. They have an away goal to take into the second leg, but will be missing Gera through suspension after he was booked earlier in the game.

45+2 - Late chance in the half for Hungary, with Kleinheisler's cross missed by Szalai but attacked by Elek, who heads over the bar.

45 - Another Johansen free-kick results in another corner for Norway, but Kiraly comes out to claim comfortably despite looking a little shaky with collecting crosses earlier in the half. There will be two added minutes at the end of the half.

39 - Another card for Hungary now as Guzmics goes into the book. 

35 - It's a good floated cross by the Celtic man, but Forren can't make proper contact with the header to direct it and so it's not at goal, but instead across it for Hungary to clear.

34 - And the third yellow of the day is for Kadar. Norway now with a free-kick in a decent position as Johansen looks to delivery something of quality for once.

31 - Chance! Lovely pass from Skjelbred for pick out the run of Soderlund, but he lacks composure again and Kiraly saves.

The game has been much more open, but that goal might change that. Hungary will sit back a little more now, one would expect, though hopefully not for the neutrals as the opening 25 minutes or so have been very entertaining.

Unbelievable! The 21-year-old hasn't even played for his club yet this season but he's made his senior debut for Hungary and scored on it! Nyland should do better, getting a hand on the shot, but the power of the midfielder's effort took it beyond him and into the back of the net for the visitors! 1-0!

26 - GOAL!! Kleinheisler nets on his debut!

24 - Needless foul from Gera as he brings down Tettey from behind and gets a yellow card. He will now miss the second leg of this tie.

20 - Moments later, Norway break in numbers, but Soderlund's effort is dragged wide of the mark.

19 - Clattenburg brandishes the game's first yellow card as Tettey clatters Kleinheisler from behind. 

13 - Kleinheisler lifts a ball in towards Elek, but he's penalised for a high foot as he looks to win it, with Hovland getting there first with his head. The game has calmed down a little since the lively opening, but it seems Norway will dominate possession tonight, with Hungary playing on the counter.

9 - Chance! Good save from Nyland as he denies Kleinheisler. The debutant hits a powerful volley goalwards but the Norway stopper makes a strong save, albeit one you'd expect him to make at his near post.

8 - Corner comes to nothing and Hungary eventually get out and have some respite as Elabdellaoui fouls Dzsudzsak just inside his own half.

7 - Another free-kick delivered by Johansen, but again easily cleared by Hungary. The hosts do have a corner though.

4 - What a save!! Earning his 100th cap tonight, former Crystal Palace goalkeeper Kiraly makes a stunning save to deny Skjelbred's effort, the captain latching onto Henriksen's cut-back and striking well, but the 'keeper was equal to it. Resulting corner is headed over the bar.

3 - Early free-kick in a good position for Norway as Johansen prepares to deliver, but it's cleared with ease by Hungary.

Hungary players are wearing black armbands following the tragic death of Marton Fulop today, a former Hungarian international.

And we're underway!

Hungary XI: Kiraly, Lang, Kadar, Fiola, Guzmics, Elek, Dzsudzsak, Kleinheisler, Szalai, Gera, Nemeth.

Norway XI: Nyland, Høgli, Hovland, Elabdellaoui, Forren, Tettey, Johansen, Henriksen, Skjelbred, Søderlund, Berget.

Hungary predicted line-up (4-4-2): Kiraly; Fiola, Guzmics, Kadar, Leandro; Lovrencsics, Elek, Gera, Dzsudzsák; Nikolić, Németh.

Norway predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Nyland; Elabdellaoui, Hovland, Forren, Aleesami; Skjelbred, Johansen, Tettey, Berget; Henriksen; Søderlund.

It is now down to the home side to apply this knowledge onto the pitch now, and they are fortunate to boast a psychological advantage too, with history largely against the Hungarians in this fixture.

The manager believes that "ranking points" go out the window for "these games" and that it all comes down to "doing your homework," which he believes he, his staff and his players have done. "We feel we know Hungary well," he continued, saying that, therefore, the team "know what to expect" from their opponents.

Speaking to the press ahead of the fixture, Høgmo said that his team are very confident of securing victory, saying that there is an abundance of "positive energy" in his group of players, and that he is sure that they will be "well-prepared" for the tie too.

Norway are confident of continuing their fantastic run against the Hungarians too, looking to capitalise on their injury problems to make it four wins in a row against the Nemzeti Tizenegy.

Still, Storck has kept his faith in the young and inexperienced, calling up István Kovács and Balázs Megyeri, both having just one cap each, and keeping uncapped duo László Kleinheisler and László Pekár in the squad.

Goalkeeper Dénes Dibusz is unavailable for selection, albeit he is not the most important absentee, the 24-year-old not the first choice stopper and boasting just three caps. Roland Varga is similarly inexperienced, but will be a more significant loss given that he has made a great start to his national career, scoring two goals in just four appearances.

As for Hungary, they are missing a couple of players through injury, which has forced Bernd Storck's hand a little.

The other two strikers at Høgmo's disposal are Alexander Søderlund, who currently tops the Norwegian scoring charts with 22 goals for Rosenborg, and SpVgg Greuther Fürth's Veton Berisha, who has three goals in the 2. Bundesliga this season.

This, therefore, sees Bournemouth's Joshua King fall out of favour, yet to find the back of the net for the Cherries in the Premier League this season, whilst Stromsgodset's Marcus Pedersen comes in following three goals in his last three games for his club.

Norway scored just eight goals in their eight games in qualifying, and so Per-Mathias Høgmo has opted for in-form attackers for this double header, telling the media, via UEFA, that he has "made a point of selecting players that are in very good form at the moment."

Given their failure to qualify automatically, it perhaps comes as little surprise that both managers have made changes to their squads for this play-off.

However, they imploded in the final stages, former Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou equalising with 11 minutes to go before Panagiotis Giorgios Kone won the game for the hosts in the 86th minute.

Hungary, on the other hand, were part of a thrilling seven goal game with Greece, albeit one which was not so thrilling for them come the final whistle as they fell to a 4-3 defeat. Greece took the lead in the game after only five minutes, but Hungary were able to come back and headed into the final 15 minutes with a 3-2 advantage thanks to a strike from Gergő Lovrencsics and a brace from former Liverpool man Krisztián Németh.

Both come into this game off the back of defeats last time out, ones which ultimately condemned them to nothing more than a play-off finish. Norway's came away at Italy, with them surrendering a 1-0 advantage, given to them after 23 minutes by Norwich City's Alexander Tettey, to lose 2-1 late on, Roma's Alessandro Florenzi and Southampton's Graziano Pellè both scoring in the final 20 minutes to turn the game around.

However, their strong finish did ensure they were seeded when it came to the play-off draw, giving them a tie against the unseeded Norway. The latter will surely be pleased with the draw though, given that they perhaps drew the weakest of the four sides possible, avoiding Sweden, Ukraine and Bosnia.

Two more points would have taken Hungary through as well, with Turkey going through as the best third placed team, boasting 16 points from eight games and a goal difference of plus five, whilst Hungary ended up with 15 points and a plus three goal difference.

The two teams find themselves at this stage in qualifying having just missed out on automatic qualification spots for France next summer, Norway finishing one point behind second-placed Croatia in Group H, whilst Hungary were four points behind Romania in Group F.

The only two players who remain in the national team set-up who have scored against Hungary, Håvard Nielsen and Mohammed Abdellaoue, have been left out of the squad for these two games, the former's last call-up coming in September and the latter's in March, but Norway are on a three game winning streak against their play-off opponents and will hope to extend that to four, and possibly five, in the next few days.

The hosts head into this fixture on an incredible unbeaten run against Hungary too, without a defeat in 10 games against them in a run that stretches all the way back to 1983.

Norway will hope to have better fortunes tonight, however, especially in order to take an advantage into the away leg of the tie, which will be played on Sunday in Budapest.

The Durham born official has in fact never officiated in a game involving Hungary, and his only association with Norway as an official came back in 2007, when he was the fourth official in their 2-1 defeat at home to Bosnia and Herzegovina in the group stages of qualifying for Euro 2008.

Tonight's referee will be England's Mark Clattenburg. Clattenburg has officiated in four Euro qualifiers already this year, but this will be the first one involving either of these two teams.

Hello and welcome to VAVEL's live coverage of tonight's UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying play-off first leg between Norway and Hungary. My name is Ameé Ruszkai and I'll be taking you through this evening's events, which will unfold at Ullevaal Stadion, Oslo.
