Ireland vs Norway Betting Tips: Ireland to win

Ranked 49th and 42nd, respectively in the rankings, both nations come into this fixture somewhat downhearted, having failed to top their respective Nations League sections.

Indeed, Norway, who disappointingly failed to qualify for Qatar, having finished third in their qualifying section behind Netherlands and Turkey, have lost both of their last two matches and, without the services of Erling Haaland, could struggle to contain an improving Irish.

While falling to a 2:1 loss in Scotland recently, Ireland have certainly improved over the past year, having won 6 and lost only 3 of their last 14 international matches. The Irish had won just 1 of their previous 15 games, that against minnows Andorra.

However, a big win against Scotland last summer lifted Irish expectations, while a draw against Ukraine also demonstrated Ireland´s ability to compete with higher-ranked nations.

Ultimately, for a friendly fixture like this, low stakes are advised, but Ireland are building some momentum under Stephen Kenny, and with Norway losing 6 of their last 9 away friendlies and shorn of the significant talents of Haaland, a home win could prove a good choice at attractive odds.

Captain Martin Ødegaard should earn his 46th cap, having impressed in Arsenal´s weekend win at Wolves, while Jørgen Strand Larsen could replace Haaland in the Norwegian attack.
