Norway vs Romania
EURO 2020 Qualification
Date: Friday, 7th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Ullevål Stadion (Oslo).
With Spain and Sweden in the same group, it’d be monumentally tough for the other teams to qualify from Group F. But hope remains, as Sweden still has two games against Spain, which could be taken advantage of.
Romania recorded a huge win at home against Faroe Islands, with a 4-1 scoreline. By the 33rd minute itself, the team was leading 3-0, and later the three points were just a formality. Against Sweden though, the team could not post a point. They lost on the road for a 2-1 scorecard.
Norway had a whirlwind of a tie against Sweden. They had raced to a 2-0 lead at home, but in the dying minutes of the tie, Sweden scored three goals in a row to take back the lead. But in the 90+7th minute, Norway hit back to equalize the scores.
Against Spain, Norway had to settle for a 2-1 loss on the road.

Norway vs Romania Prediction
The obvious home advantage will come to Norway’s aid in this tie. Also, they have not lost against this opponent in the last three decades. Moreover, Norway prevailed in a nail-biting encounter against Sweden, where they scored three goals each, in their last game, while against Spain, things were close, and Spain had to rely on a late penalty to take the win.
Romania has had some struggles on the road lately, and they are not backed to have a great showing against the hosts.
But do take into account the fact that every single h2h tie where Norway had the home status had goals from both teams. Also, they were not able to keep clean sheets in three of their last four matches, whereas Romania found the back of the net in 10 of their last 12 ties.
Expect both teams to get in on goal-scoring action.
