Norway looking for at least a point

World Cup Qualifiers in group G resume here with the 21st meeting between Norway and the Netherlands. Incidentally, this is their first match since 2009.  Notably, just one point separates the top four teams in this group. Hence, the importance of this match relies on the fact that the winner might clinch the top spot. 

Norway now have the chance to qualify for their first major finals since Euro 2000. Yet, with their two wins coming against teams outside the Fifa top 50 any point against Holland will be a bonus. However, the last time Norway beat a top 15 team was in 2015 against Croatia. 

Norway Key Points 

  • BTTS occurred in Norway’s three of the last ten matches 
  • Norway scored in eight of their last ten matches 
  • Over 2.5 Goals were scored in Norway’s six of the last ten matches 

The Netherlands with new coach looking for a third win

Louis Van Gaal is back at the head of the Dutch national team for a third spell. With 20 major honors, undoubtedly Van Gaal is one of the most successful coaches in the world. In spite of a fine group stage performances in the Euro 2020, the Dutch side were eliminated in the last 16 round. Consequently, that decided Frank De Boer’s future. 

During his last spell, Van Gaal went unbeaten in all of the WCQ games he was in charge of. Moreover, his Oranje scored at least two goals in all ten matches of that campaign. Hence, much is expected from the Dutch side with players like Depay and De Ligt at the backbone of Van Gaal’s squad. 

Netherlands Key Points

  • The Netherlands scored on nine of their last ten matches
  • BTTS happened in the Netherlands’ four of the last ten matches 
  • Holland had clean sheets in five of their last ten matches 

Norway vs Netherlands prediction 

Norway’s level declined in recent years. Notably, we can see that from their absence of major tournaments in the last 21 years. However, with a prolific scorer like Haaland on the side, Norwegians have high hopes for the young sensation. 

The Netherlands are keen to stay in contention with the group leaders. Hence three points are crucial for them in this match. Moreover, Van Gaal will try to implement his total football strategy that was so successful during the Bergkamp and co era. 

In conclusion, we expect goals in this match. At Vbet we have many bets to choose from and we chose the over 1.5 goals with the double chance outcome.
