Norway vs Northern Ireland Prediction 8 October 2017

Tournament: 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification
Location: Ullevaal Stadium, Oslo
Match date: 08.10.2017 at 19:45

On October 8 2017 at 19:45 in Oslo at the Ullevaal Stadium in the upcoming last round of the 2018 World Cup qualification Norway national team will play against Northern Ireland national team.

Norway were really unconfident at the very beginning of the qualification for the World Cup in Russia and that was the beginning of their end. Even though they outplayed San Marino in the latest match with the devastating 0:8 score, they still didn’t have any chances to make it to the final of the competition. After 9 matches already played in the Group C. in those matches Norway gained 10 points with 16:16 goal difference which let them take the 4th place in the stnadigns. In their home matches played in the current qualifiers Norway lost to Germany 0:3, outplayed San Marino 4:1 and Azerbaijan 2:0 and drew Czech Republic 1:1 at the beginning of June.

Northern Ireland, in their turn, aren’t always successful in their qualification campaigns and yet at the moment they are probably in their best conditions in the history. Despite their brilliant performance, they still didn’t manage to avoid mistakes yet, even though they lost in their latest game to Germany 1:3, their 19 points gained are enough for them to outpace their closest rivals by 7 points.

The results of the latest games played between the teams show the advantage of Norway, in fact. Northern Ireland have only outplayed Norway twice in their history. We must admit that one of these victories happened in the first round game of the current qualifiers when Northern Ireland won 2:0 at home. Anyway, none of the teams have any tournament motivation and that’s why the result of the match may be any. It seems to us that Northern Ireland will manage to avoid a loss in the upcoming match as they are in better conditions.
