In nine games in a row, Norway is not losing, but will the hosts be able to extend the streak on September 4 in a duel with Austria – the answer is in the forecast. Who is the favorite?
The Norwegian national team in the last draw of the League of Nations started in League “C”, where they performed successfully. In the group with Bulgaria, Cyprus and Slovenia, the Norwegians were the strongest and moved to the division above.
In the selection for the European Championship, Lars Lagerbek’s team had a chance of success – for objective reasons, they could not compete with Spain, but the fight was fought for the second place to the last, but in the end it was lost to Sweden – the opponent came off by four points and left the Norwegians third.
The Austrian national team did not manage to prove themselves in the League of Nations – they managed to impose the fight against Bosnia and Herzegovina, but the first line remained with the competitor, and the Austrians will continue to fight in the League “B”. In qualifying for the European Championship, Franco Foda’s team achieved what they wanted – they managed to finish in second place in the group, the podium remained with Poland, but this was enough to get a ticket to Euro.
Norway has not lost in any of the last nine matches – four wins and five draws
Norway has not lost in any of its last 15 home matches – 10 wins and five draws
Only one of the last three away matches has Austria been able to win
The Norwegian national team showed excellent football in the Euro qualifiers, but several mistakes made it impossible to qualify for the tournament. At home, the Norwegians are especially dangerous – lately they have not even managed to win here, the team scores enough and regularly takes points. Austria cannot boast of such stability, especially when it comes to away matches, so it makes sense to give preference to the hosts.
We believe hosts have a better chance of success. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) for Norway . In Betting League this outcome is offered with odds of 1.75
