Norse gods are far better than the Greeks.
Both had a sky god (Zeus, Thor)
Both had a ruler (Odin, Zeus)
Both had their own separate realm (Asgard, Olympus)
Both had a goddess of love and beauty (Freyja, Aphrodite)
Both had a queen of marriage (Frigga, Hera)
Both had a trickster god (Loki, Hermes)
Both had an underworld (The Underworld, Helheim)
Both had a creation myth
Both were full of mythological beasts
Both had connections with the rainbow (Iris, the Bifrost Bridge)
Norse had a god of evil (Loki)
Greeks were relatively peaceful
Norse were more battle prone
Norse had an end of the world prophecy
Greeks moved on to Rome
Norse had nine realms (Yggdrasil)
Greeks had three (Olympus, Earth, and The Underworld)
Norse had a goddess of death (Hela)
Greeks had a god of death (Thanatos)
Greek predecessors were the Titans
Norse predecessors was the giant Ymir
Norse didn't have a select council of gods, Greeks did
There are many more, but it would take a long time to list them. I hope this helped.

Two quite different mythologies, similar in that there are several gods and goddesses in constant battle.
