Norway Prediction – Can Norway make late surge?

4th placed Norway only appear to have an outside chance of achieving a top two finish in Group F as they trail 2nd placed Sweden by a margin of 4 points with just 2 matches remaining of this Euro 2020 group phase.

Although Norway have lost just once in their 8 matches played to date in Group F, the hosts have been involved in no fewer than 5 stalemates and their apparent lack of punch up front may well have cost Lars Lagerback’s side dear as they now chase down back-to-back wins in their final 2 matches of the group to stand a chance of a top two finish.

A 2-1 defeat away from home against Spain was perhaps expected but it’s been their disappointing results at home that has cost Norway valuable ground as they’ve been held to draws by Sweden and Romania, although a point against Spain was considered a solid result.

Anyhow, 7 of Norway’s last 9 Euro qualifiers at home have resulted in under 3.5 goals while 6 of their 8 matches played overall in Group F have also been under the 3.5 goals mark.

Faroe Islands Prediction – Can Faroe Islands provide stubborn resistance?

Second from bottom Faroe Islands have gained just 3 points from their first 8 matches in Group F which was a 1-0 home win against fellow strugglers Malta, who incidentally inflicted a 2-1 win over the Islanders in the opening match of the group phase.

7 defeats on the trot well and truly sealed Faroe Islands’s fate at an early stage in their Euro 2020 campaign but their margins of defeat have been slowly but steadily decreased in the past few years and although they continue to lose, they’re at least putting up greater resistance in internationals.

Indeed, half of their matches played to date in Group F have resulted in under 3.5 goals scored while 2 of the other 4 matches that went above the 3.5 goals mark were against a strong Spain outfit.

In addition, 5 of Faroe Islands’ last 8 away matches in all competitions have resulted in under the 3.5 goals mark, so the visitors look a fairly decent bet in keeping the scores reasonably close here on Friday night.


Key-Facts – Norway vs Faroe Islands

  • 7 of Norway’s last 9 Euro qualifiers at home have resulted in under 3.5 goals
  • 5 of Faroe Islands’ last 8 away matches in all competitions have resulted under 3.5 goals
  • Norway recorded a 2-0 win away at Faroe Islands in the earlier fixture


Betting Tips Verdict

Norway may well win this clash but expect a fairly low-scoring game here as the visitors look to frustrate their hosts.
