NORWAY VS NETHERLANDS PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Norway is temporarily ranked 4th with points with the Netherlands and 1 point behind the top team. So, they need to make the most of their home-field advantage to realize their World Cup dream. Possessing a squad of many young talents of world football such as Haland or Odegaard, Norway’s attacking play is extremely impressive. In the last 6 official matches at home, Norway scored 12 goals but also conceded 7 times, an average of 3.15 goals per game. The ability to attack is diverse, but the downline is loose and limited in experience, which is an inherent weakness. Typically, the 0-3 defeat to Turkey after having to play with 10 people. Confronting the Netherlands with a much higher level, the ability to keep a clean sheet is still a huge question mark.
The Netherlands is returning to their position as a big player in Europe after a seven-year absence from major tournaments. Frank de Boer’s students brought home 2 victories after the first 3 matches 7-0 against Gibraltar and 2-0 against Latvia. Although there are still worries in the defense, the attacking style of the “Orange whirlwind” is increasingly diverse. In the last 10/11 matches, the Netherlands scored 2 or more goals is a statistic that shows the strength in attack. Dedication in the game always brings football parties, the last 8/11 matches appeared with no less than 3 goals. With the excitement and pressure removed, Dutch matches will become even more attractive.
Both aiming for victory and possessing an impressive scoring ability, a double attack is expected. The situation in Group G is that the top 4 teams are only 1 point apart, making the option of Under potentially risky.
Select: Over 2.5 FT.
The Netherlands has continuously achieved success in recent tournaments, the biggest mark is the 2019 Nations League runner-up. The level difference is very significant, the Netherlands is regaining their position while Na Uy has been completely absent from major tournaments for 2 decades.
Norway’s last 7 matches are very erratic, having to receive 3 defeats against Greece, Romania and 0-3 against Turkey at home. More ominous is the number of 9 times in the net to pick up the ball. The other side of the Netherlands won 6 in the last 8 matches, including 3 victories at the Euro just happened.
Select: Netherlands FT.
European odds show that the house appreciates the Dutch’s ability to win. Not denying Norway’s efforts, however, this time putting faith in them is a risky choice. The opportunity for the Netherlands to triumph is very bright with the impressive performance of the strikers.
Select: Netherlands FT.
