Northern Ireland Norway betting prediction


Preview
Northern Ireland and Norway face , in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Europe (1st Round). There is no recent record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams. The last head‑to‑head was played on 29‑02‑2012 and ended with the final score: Northern Ireland (0‑3) Norway. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Northern Ireland

The home team is currently in the 2nd position, with 7 points won, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Germany by (2‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Azerbaijan by (4‑0). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a home loss against Croatia by (0‑3). Northern Ireland has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 1 of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 12 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

Northern Ireland have played well in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and are among the top-ranked teams in Group E with 58% of the points played so far and it is worth mentioning that they are 5 points behind leaders Germany, in the next game is essential to continue in the fight for a place in the Russian Cup. The team scored 8 goals, being the second best attack of their group, and conceded 2 goals, having the second defense less leaked and these figures demonstrate the good balance between the offensive and defensive sectors, since it has scored regularly and conceded few goals. Northern Ireland have won their two games against San Marino and Azerbaijan and have averages of 4 goals scored and no goal conceded, but it is important to note that they faced two teams of low quality. Overall in the qualifiers, with both the hosts and the visiting side counting, the Northern Irish team tends to be more efficient offensively in the second half, with 5 of their 8 goals taking place in the second stage, especially between the 75 and 90 minutes where there were 4 Goals

Confirmed Lineup: M. McGovern, G. McAuley, C. Cathcart, C. McLaughlin, J. Evans, S. Dallas, C. Brunt, S. Davis, O. Norwood, J. Ward, C. Washington.

Analysis of Norway

The away team is currently in the 5th position, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 3 losses. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match agaisnt San Marino by (4‑1). In the last round, they have lost an away match against Czech Republic by (2‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 28 conceded; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 13 conceded. In the last 9 away matches Norway has won 1, tied 1 and lost 7. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 6 of the last 9 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Norway have been performing well below expectations in the qualifiers for the Russia World Cup and are among the last placed Group E players to take advantage of only 25% of the points played so far and desperately need the victory to continue dreaming of an improbable next World Cup. The team scored 5 goals, being the third best attack of their group, and conceded 7 goals, having the second defense more leaked and these figures demonstrate that it is necessary to adjust both in the offensive system and in the defensive system to leave the uncomfortable situation in which they are. Playing as a visitor, as their match on Sunday, Norway lost their 2 matches against Azerbaijan and the Czech Republic, and has averages of 0.50 goals scored and 1.50 goals conceded, again showing the problems both in their attack and in their defense. In general of the qualifiers, counting the games at home and abroad, usually scores more in the second half, since 4 of their 5 goals happened in the second stage, all between 75 and 90 minutes.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Jarstein, O. Elabdellaoui, J. Skjelvik, E. Hovland, G. Valsvik, H. Nordtveit, M. Elyounoussi, S. Johansen, T. Elyounoussi, J. King, A. Søderlund.

Betting suggestion:

This confrontation tends to be a little unbalanced, considering that the principal is in a great phase and has been fighting for a place for the Russian Cup, while the visitor is performing well below expectations, accumulates only 3 points in 12 disputed and will hardly a place for the 2018 World Cup. In addition, Northern Ireland has great strength in their home stadium where they thrashed in their 2 matches and conceded no goals, while Norway lost 2 games and has found it difficult to swing the nets in this type of situation. In view of these factors, we believe that Northern Ireland will win the game and the best phase of the game to win at least a draw in this match. This betting suggestion has expired...
