Northern Irish mentality monsters receive Haaland and Co.

When Jogi Löw publicly got excited about the tightly timed calendar of the international match year 2020 after his team’s 1-1 draw against Spain on Thursday evening, he should have enjoyed the fullest approval, especially from his colleagues. The DFB-Elf has to play six competitive games by mid-November. Also, there are two more test matches with a view to the EURO 2021.
Meanwhile, it gets even more blatant for nations that are also fighting in October for the last remaining tickets for the European Championship next year. To what extent these teams will take the much controversial second edition of the European tournament seriously remains to be seen. Two of these selection teams will meet in a direct duel on Monday evening. Northern Ireland receives Norway and is considered a slight underdog according to the odds of the best bookmakers.
However, we consider it very daring to identify the guests from the far north as favorites, especially since Erling Haaland and Co. lost 2-1 at home against Austria on Friday and have been waiting for success against a reasonably noteworthy competitor since 2018.
The hosts also missed a three at the start of the new Nations League season, but after the intermittent 0-1 deficit in Romania, they earned a point (1: 1). Since the Green & White Army has been confronting European heavyweights such as the Germans or the Dutch in their stadium in the recent past, we dare to predict the home win between Northern Ireland and Norway, which is appropriately odds.
Insider Tips: Under 1.5
Northern Ireland – Statistics & current form
Can the Northern Irish national football team make history again in early October? Four years after the green-whites were allowed to take part in a European championship for the first time, the successful qualification for the pan-European finals next year beckons. Strictly speaking, the British only have to survive 180 minutes.
What sounds relatively easy in theory, turns out to be all the more difficult in practice, as the Northern Irish would have to eliminate Bosnia in the playoffs in the semi-finals and have the upper hand in a potential final against Ireland or Slovakia. The undertaking is by no means hopeless, but it is always complicated.
Northern Ireland impresses with its mentality and a stable defense
Given the great opportunity that the Green & White Army wants to use, the Nations League matches in September have more of a test character. The results are rather secondary; it is much more about finding a suitable formation, developing automatisms, and leaving with a good feeling. The team of the new coach Ian Baraclough already got one on Friday evening, when they made up a 0: 1 deficit despite being under 50 minutes and scored a considerable point (1: 1) in Romania.
Thanks to this enormously strong mental performance and the fact that the world number 36. Losing only one home game in the entire international match year 2019 (0-2 against Germany), it seems logical in our eyes that the tip on the home side is a lucrative option between Northern Ireland and Norway. In terms of quality, the green-whites, especially defensively appearing very stable, hardly need to hide across Europe. So why shouldn’t a win against an opponent at eye level be possible?
Probable formation of Northern Ireland:
Peacock-Farrell; Dallas, Ballard, Cathcart, Lewis; Whyte, Evans, Davis, Saville; McNair; Lafferty

Norway – Statistics & current form
Anyone who thinks of Norwegian football in these weeks and months automatically thinks of Erling Haaland. The young attacker from Borussia Dortmund is considered to be one of the most promising talents in all of Europe and should lead his home country to one or the other success in the next ten to 15 years.
It is all the more surprising that the 20-year-old scored his very first goal for the national team on Friday evening. The goal for the 1: 2 final against Austria remained meaningless. In their first international match in 2020, the Scandinavians suffered their first defeat and were not allowed to complain about it afterward. The bottom line was that the Northern Europeans showed a disappointing performance, which is why the bankruptcy was deserved.
Norway continues to hope to participate in the European Championship in 2021
The by no means satisfactory appearance at the start of the new Nations League season is by no means the only indication that speaks against a prediction for the guest in the direct duel between Northern Ireland and Norway. The fact that the team of the experienced coach Lars Lagerbäck only celebrated successes against Malta and the Faroe Islands during the entire international match year 2019 should also be taken into account.
Nevertheless, Haaland and Co. still have the chance to qualify for the EURO 2020. In their playoff semi-finals, the Scandinavians face Serbia. The final opponent will be determined in the other semi-final between Scotland and Serbia. The focus is clearly on the playoffs mentioned so that on Monday evening we see the home advantage that the Northern Irish have as such.
Probable formation of Norway:
Jarstein; Elabdellaoui, Reginiussen, Ajer, Aleesami; Thorsby, Berge, Normann, Johansen; Sorloth, Haaland

Northern Ireland vs Norway Free Betting Tips Provided by Insider Tipsters
On the second matchday in Group 1 of Division B, there will be a duel between Northern Ireland and Norway. The betting odds indicate an exciting match in which the guests from the far north are even slightly favored. According to the latest impressions and despite Erling Haaland in the Norwegian attack, we do not agree with this assessment.
While the “Green & White Army” only lost one home game against the DFB-Elf in 2019 and wrested a draw from the Dutch, among other things, the Scandinavians fell short of their expectations last year. Only against the Faroe Islands or Malta, it was enough to achieve success. The Lagerbäck team also suffered a well-deserved defeat against Austria on Friday.
Key facts – Northern Ireland vs Norway tips
Northern Ireland only lost to Germany at home in 2019 (0-2)
Norway won against a reasonably well-known opponent for the last time in 2018
The home team won in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers
The Northern Irish, who were outnumbered, scored a point that was hardly considered possible in Romania, which gave them a lot of self-confidence and an extremely good feeling. In connection with the proven home strength, these are factors to justify a tip on the home side between Northern Ireland and Norway.
