Northern Ireland vs Norway Prediction & Tips
Northern Ireland will have their spirits in high gear after achieving a late 1-1 draw against Romania the previous day – this despite playing with ten men from the 39th minute. However, the reality is that they haven’t won in their last five official matches (E2, P3), despite conceding the first match only twice and drawing 0-0 at halftime three times.
In fact, the last five official matches of the home team at home have recorded a tied first half, although only one ended that way at the end of the match (G2, E1, P2). However, ending their two-match winless streak here will require breaking a trend, as Northern Ireland have lost five of the previous six official home games in which they started as the weakest opponent in betting (E1) .
Norway fell 2-1 in their first UEFA Nations League (UNL) match after conceding both halves, a result that ended a nine-match winless streak (G4, E5). However, they are the betting favorite in this match even though they have beaten only one team in the Top 40 of the FIFA Rankings – in official matches – since October 2015, even though that victory was against Northern Ireland in the last match! between both pictures!
The Scandinavian team has four games without losing away from home (G2, E2) and, in that period, they scored the first goal three times but led at halftime only once (MT: G1, E3). However, if recent trends are any guide, it is what happens after the break that could see the visitors clinch victory: Since the start of UNL’s inaugural campaign, Norway have scored 70% of their goals. at home after the break.
Players to watch: Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis’ last seven goals for his country have resulted in wins (G6).
Erling Braut Håland scored his first goal for Norway the previous day. That goal, like eight of his 13 in the Bundesliga during 2019/20, came after the 60th minute.
Highlight: A penalty has been called in five of Norway’s last seven games.
