Norway vs Netherlands
World Cup Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 1 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ullevål Stadion.
Netherlands are one of the best teams in Europe, while Norway are counted amongst one of the mediocre ones. The former had a good run at the Euros, and also have a great h2h record against this rival, whereas the Norwegians had not even made it to the continental competition.
Likely, expect the Dutch to post the three points on the board.
As of now, Turkey are at the top of the table with a one-point lead, and Holland need to climb to the first position. The latter had not qualified for the 2018 World Cup, and it was considered a shame for the country with a great footballing heritage. They absolutely cannot risk it happening this time around, and are going after a win this Wednesday.
The Norwegians who are in inconsistent form do not stand a chance against this determined squad.
Norway vs Netherlands: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-0 win for the Dutch.
- They are on a four-fixture winning streak.
- They had kept clean sheets in five of the former six clashes.
- The last the Norwegians won at home was back in 1992.
- However, not once have they managed to keep a clean sheet at home though.
Norway vs Netherlands Prediction
Norway recorded a 0-1 win against Montenegro the last match-day in the Qualifiers, while the Dutch won 0-7 against Gibraltar.
Holland also had a 100% winning record in the group stages of the Euros – a competition which Norway failed to qualify for. Going on, the Dutch were unbeaten in 12 of their past 14 overall matches, and they had scored two or more goals in every single fixture in this edition of the Qualifiers so far.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in four of their past seven overall games, and they had also lost four of their past seven appearances at home.
On top of that, the Norwegians also have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years, and the last they scored a goal against them was 27 years back.
Taking into account these observations, expect a win for Netherlands this Wednesday.
