Norway vs Northern Ireland Prediction & Betting tips
For Northern Ireland it could be uncomfortable in Norway. The hosts digested the disappointment that they missed participating in the European Championship. After the defeat against Serbia, the Scandinavians immediately returned to winning ways and beat Romania 4-0 last Sunday evening.
For the Northern Irish it was again on the third match day in the Nations League a home defeat against Austria. For the upcoming match between Norway and Northern Ireland, the tip on good odds includes at least two hits by the Lions.
The Norwegian selection is still very young, which is why a setback such as the elimination in the European Championship playoffs against the ripped off Serbs last week did not come as a complete surprise. However, the team of coach Lars Lagerbäck was not permanently unsettled by the bankruptcy.
Romania was beaten 4-0 last Sunday and the Scandinavians once again benefited from their noble storm. Erik Haaland delivered a hat trick and has now scored six times.
With three goals and two assists, the best goal-getter of the past season in the Turkish Süplerlig was involved in half of all goals on the part of the Northern Europeans.
Norway can also rely on 21-year-old Martin Odegaard for its efficient attacking game. Like Sörloth, the Real Madrid midfielder has a very high footballing IQ value and twice scored Haaland’s goals in the last match against Romania.
Based on the three examples, it quickly becomes clear that the national team is currently well staffed for the country’s conditions and faces a promising future.
For Northern Ireland, relegation to League C is becoming apparent after the first three match days. Besides Romania, coach Ian Baraclough’s team has the weakest defensive in the group. The doorbell of the two goalkeepers McGovern and Peacock-Farrell rang more than twice per game.
In addition, the Northern Irish attack is not very reliable – with two hits, the balance is the lowest in a group-wide comparison. Offensive players like Paddy McNair from Midlesbrough or Conor Washington from Charlton only play in lower-class British teams for a reason.
International class can definitely not be attested. The upswing before the last European Championship, when the qualification succeeded for the first time in the history of the country, has already come to a standstill.
In view of this and the stabilized condition of the opponent, the odds for a win with at least two hits difference in the match between Norway and Northern Ireland are given value to the advantage of the aggressively strong hosts.
