Nations League Betting Tips: Northern Ireland v Norway

Northern Ireland look to build on Friday night’s creditable 1-1 draw away in Romania when they host Norway on Monday evening in the UEFA Nations League.

The hosts are beginning life after Michael O Neill’s departure to take over at Stoke City full-time, and his successor - former Under-21s coach Ian Baraclough - has big shoes to fill after the coach worked wonders to take them to Euro 2016 and out of the group stage in France. 

 

He’s made a promising start to the job with a 1-1 draw in Romania on Friday. It was a backs-to-the-wall display with a man-of-the-match performance from Burnley goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, forced into eight saves after Romania took an early lead and Josh Magennis was sent off after two bookings before half-time. 

 

But they got the rewards for digging deep when second-half substitute Gavin Whyte of Cardiff struck home an 88th-minute equaliser, somewhat against the run of play. Kyle Lafferty - who claimed the assist - is the favourite in the goalscorer markets for Northern Ireland here; he’s 8/1 to open the scoring and 7/2 to score anytime with Betfair Sportsbook. 

 

Norway, meanwhile, were defeated 1-2 at home to Austria on Friday evening. They haven’t been in especially good form over the past 18 months, finishing third behind Spain and rivals Sweden in their Euro 2020 qualifying group with four wins, five draws and one defeat from ten outings.

 

We recommend backing Erling Haaland to score anytime, which is generously priced at 13/8 with Paddy Power. 

 

The towering centre-forward notched a consolation goal in Norway’s defeat to Austria last time out, and is incredibly prolific - he’s scored six goals in his last seven appearances for club and country in all competitions.
