Norway in a must-win game

Five wins and two draws from eight matches kept Norway in a good position to finish in the top two of Group G. Now, with two matches left to play, the Lions will take matters into their own hands and play to win this match. Then boss Solbakken will think about their last clash in the Netherlands. Surely, Norway believe they are in with a great chance to qualify for their first WC since 1998.

As a result, Solbakken must prevent any surprises against Latvia as any slip-ups and Turkey can take advantage. Norway’s home record improved in the last three matches in which they are unbeaten. In fact, the Lions haven’t lost in the qualifiers since the 0-3 defeat by Turkey back in March. Hence, Solbakken will utilize all the offensive strength he has in his squad.

Latvia to make it as hard as possible for Norway

Having reached the 45th spot as their highest ranking in 2009, Latvia lost 89 places in the last decade. Notably, their best achievement was appearing in the 2004 European Championship when they got eliminated from the group stages. With one win and two draws, the “11 Wolves” have five points and just one away win in any competitive game since March 2017.

In the current qualification games, Latvia lost three of their last four matches to the leading three teams of the group. On the positive side though, the defeats were by just one goal against the Netherlands and Turkey and by two against Norway. Moreover, Latvia were on the brink of drawing with Turkey had they not conceded a killer goal in the 99th minute. Nevertheless, their away defensive record will be a concern as they conceded on average 2.4 goals in the last five games.

Norway vs Latvia Key points

  • Norway scored on average 2.7 goals per game in their last three home matches
  • The number of times Norway failed to score in their last ten games is one
  • Latvia have just two clean sheets in ten game
