Norway vs Azerbaijan – 2018 World Cup Qualification Prediction and Betting Tip Preview

2018 World Cup

Norway host Azerbaijan at the Ullevaal Stadion on a match counting towards the Qualification stage for the 2018 World Cup.

Surely, mathematically several teams still have a chance to qualify. Although without many points and in bad positions within the group, if the teams are able to string together a positive streak, they can get closer to the qualifying spots.

That’s exactly the problem. Up until this moment, the teams weren’t able to do that. Norway’s situation is even worse than their opponents’ one.

The team is in the penultimate position, with only 4 points and they are 3 points behind Azerbaijan and 9 points behind Northern Ireland, who sits in 2nd.

The team only has 1 win so far, against fragile San Marino. And not even playing at home has been able to help them a lot.

At home, the team won once, tied another and also lost once, having a goal record of 5 goals scored and 5 goals conceded.

Norway vs Azerbaijan – Betting Tip and Prediction:

Azerbaijan has 7 points and they are currently 4th in this group. The team still has a chance to advance, since Northern Ireland has 13 points, so the 6-point differential can still be mitigated, but it will not be an easy task.

But still, the team’s campaign is surprising. Playing away from home, the team has played 3 matches, getting 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss and scoring 1 goal while conceding 4.

I expect a more relaxed match here. Especially offensively. Neither of these two sides have been doing well offensively, especially Azerbaijan who tends to sit back and play for the counter-attack when playing away from home.

The team has only scored 1 goal away from home and that posture should be maintained here.

I believe in a low-scoring match but I also believe that this Norwegian team favouritism is exaggerated with these current odds. Therefore, the Handicap on the visitors is also interesting.
