Norway vs Montenegro: Prediction and Betting Tips
Norway to strengthen their position at the second spot
Norway are on the right track to make their first World Cup appearance since 1998. Notably, they are just four points short of their best effort since then when they played in the playoffs in 2006. Currently, they have just one loss from seven matches and came back from Istanbul with an important point.
Moreover, Norway is undefeated in the last four WCQ games. And a win here could build a gap of five points with the third position. That could be very crucial as coach Solbakken’s team travel to play the Netherlands in the final round. Having won six of their last seven matches, and also the opposite fixture in Montenegro, a win will be of no surprise.
Norway Key points
- 0.9 is the average number of goals conceded by Norway in their last ten matches
- Norway scored in all of their last three home games
- Three of Norway’s last five home matches saw over 2.5 goals

Montenegro has a last chance to battle for a playoff berth
Montenegro buried the ghosts of their worst-ever European Championship qualification campaign (W0, D3, L5) with UEFA Nations League promotion. Also, the current WCQ could be their best points haul since their independence. Notably, the Brave Falcons are improving with every World Cup cycle and are five points short of their best total points.
Interestingly this match will be played on the same day as Montenegro beat Denmark 0n 2016. In fact, that was the last time coach Radulovic’s team won a game as underdogs. Since then the visitors lost 13 of the 16 attempts and drew three times. In any case, a positive result would keep Radulovic and his team in contention to battle for second place in Group G.
Montenegro Key Points
- Three of Montenegro’s last four matches saw over 2.5 goals
- Montenegro failed to score in four of their last ten games
- The average number of goals conceded by Montenegro in their last ten games is 1.2
Norway vs Montenegro Prediction
Apart from their 0-3 home defeat to Turkey in round two of these qualifications, Norway are having a very good campaign. As a result, we see the bookies have Norway as favorites to win with odds of 1.56 at Vbet.
As we can see from the statistics that Noway are scoring regularly in recent matches. However, and in spite of having Haaland in their line up their scoring record should be more.
Montenegro will play a hard congested defensive style and try to get at least a point out of this one. That style helped them against Turkey two rounds ago and won’t mind repeating it.
To conclude, we think a home win is what will we go with in this one. As Norway are the better team and with prolific goals scorers on form like Thorstvedt and Haaland who finish anytime.
