The match

Norway host Finland at the Ulleval Stadion, in what will be their second November international friendly. The Norwegian outfit claimed a 1-2 away win against Ireland in each last outing, putting and to a streak two consecutive defeats. Overall, they have been in an excellent groove, with players such as Erling Haaland and Martin Odegaard providing them with valuable talent and experience to gradually build a tournament progressing team. Norway have won six of their last nine games and lost just one of nine at home. Their tradition against Finland is also strong, having managed to beat the fellow Scandinavian side in three of their previous four home meetings.

Finland conceded a draw against North Macedonia in their latest encounter. The Finns are experiencing a dry spell of sorts, having won just two of their last ten games. Kanerva’s men have regressed significantly after their Euro 2021 participation, yet their defensive numbers remain strong. Nine of their last ten have featured Under 2.5 goals, while they have conceded more than twice in just one of those games. Moreover, they have been performing well when on the road, prevailing in four of their last eight away games. On the downside, they have never beaten Norway away in each of the four times they have faced off.

The bet of our experts

In what should be an entertaining Scandinavian battle, the momentum is clearly with the hosts. Even without the star name of Erling Haaland in the squad, Norway possess plenty of firepower and backing them to see off a poor of late Finland side is the way to go here.
