Northern Ireland vs Norway Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Northern Ireland vs Norway betting tips and predictions ahead of this World Cup Qualifier, kicking off at 6:45pm on Sunday, 26th March 2017

 

Northern Ireland are aiming to build on their last 16 place at Euro 2016 by making the World Cup play-offs. Can they continue their push to finish behind Germany by seeing off an underperforming Norway side this weekend?

 

Northern Ireland vs Norway Predictions

 

Northern Ireland looked to have a tough test ahead of them in their push to make it to Russia in 2018. The Ulstermen have the Czech Republic and Azerbaijan to contend with for second place, while Norway also looked like a threat. However, the Norwegians visit Windsor Park on Sunday night having lost three games, with a solitary win coming against San Marino.

 

The visitors have racked up five goals in four games, but 80% of those came against San Marino in that win. That’s an awful record, one which will surely blow any hopes Norway have of qualifying for Russia. They head to Windsor Park, a very tough venue to visit, with little threat up front. Northern Ireland showed their defensive organisation on their way to Euro 2016 and during the tournament, and we think that will also help them here. We’re backing a clean sheet for the hosts in our first Northern Ireland vs Norway betting tip, which is priced at 29/20 with Coral.

Not only do we think he hosts will avoid defeat by keeping a clean sheet, but we’re backing the Ulstermen to take maximum points in this game for our second football tip. They’ve won three straight qualifying games here, while Norway have lost three out of four so far. The visitors have conceded almost two per game so far, with NI scoring eight times in just two home qualifiers. They have enough scoring threat to win this game, so we’re backing more for the Green and White Army to celebrate in our second Northern Ireland vs Norway prediction. We’re going with a home win at 29/20 with Boylesports.

Northern Ireland have Shane Ferguson suspended, although aside from that Michael O’Neill has a strong squad to choose from.

 

Head to Head Stats

Norway have won two of the last three meetings, but these sides are going through a very different phase than they were in the 1970s when they first met.

 

Northern Ireland vs Norway Betting Odds
