Norway vs Faroe Islands Prediction
Apart from the loss against Spain in the opening away match of the qualifiers, Norway has kept an unbeaten streak for the past seven qualifier encounters. They have managed to keep a good form in the table (W2 D5 L1) this season. But a large number of draws have cost the Norwegians a spot in the top 2.
It has been a struggle for the host in recent times. The Lions have met with three consecutive draws in their meetings with the top three teams. They tied games with Sweden and Romania on the road and with Spain at home with the same 1-1 scoreline.
Both their wins in the league was against the lower-lying teams in the table. Since Faroe Island is one of the underlying punching bags and that Norway has managed to defeat them earlier at Faroe’s home, the host has more chance of winning the three points in the clash.
Faroe Island has been one of the underdogs in Group F. They have lost seven of the eight qualifiers until now and their lone win coming at home against the more pathetic Malta. Their 3 points in the table are no match for the 11 points recorded by the hosting team.
Norway does hold the home advantage in the game. Their fixtures at home have derived good results for the team dugout. Evidently, six of their 11 points came while playing at their own turf. Moreover, the Lions have been unbeaten at home in the contest (W1 D3).
In the meantime, Faroe Island has lost all their away games in their fixtures. As Norway has managed to tie the reigns on Spain at home, registering a win against Faroe Island will not be much of a task for the Lions. Hence, we can count on the Lions to register a win in the game, probably by leading in both the halves.
Also, we can expect the Norwegian strikers to step up and see the back of the net a couple of times in ninety minutes.
