Norway vs Panama Preview and Predictions

Norway vs Panama
International Friendly
Date: Wednesday, 6th June 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Ullevaal Stadion (Oslo).

Norway have picked it up recently and host Panama for their friendly clash on the back of a three-game winning streak, after beating Australia, Albania, and Iceland with a high total of eight goals scored. They’ve impressed in the attacking third and really look tough to outgun, as Lars Lagerback set up a deadly attacking line.

Panama have struggled for a return to the winning ways and only earned one win in last six outings, beating Trinidad & Tobago but suffering losses to Iran, Denmark and Switzerland as well as held to draws by Wales and most recently Northern Ireland. Herman Gomez has struggled to find a cure for their woes in the attacking third and this will surely be very worrying.

Nonetheless, Los Canaleros rarely concede many goals and with that in mind, basing their success on such defensive displays through most part of the World Cup Qualifiers campaign. We thus expect a very strong challenge at Ullevaal Stadion too, as they hope to build on their team spirits over the World Cup absentees.

Norway vs Panama Head-to-head

  • This will be the first head-to-head clash for the sides

  • Panama have made it to the World Cup in a thriller campaign and hope to show off such a character

Norway vs Panama Predictions

We do believe Panama will have what it takes for such a quest and that they can hold off Norway in Oslo, as we stick our necks out for a Draw at 3.40. We have seen them as a very tough side to score against and expect them very motivated with World Cup just under their noses, which should make the tough task.

We do feel Norway will thus have a hard time breaking the deadlock and with that in mind, we’ll also back Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.60. Norway have impressed in the attacking third recently but Panama seem to be a very solid defensive line and we thus hope for few goals at Ullevaal Stadion.
