EUROPE: World Cup - Qualification


World Cup qualifying continues on Saturday evening with another round of matches. Latvia will welcome Norway in Group D.
The situation in the group is as follows. Turkey is leading with 8 points. Netherlands, Montenegro, and Norway have 7 points each and Latvia is in fifth place with 4 points. The first place goes straight to the World Cup and the second place goes to the promotion.

The Latvian team is mostly composed of players from the weaker European leagues and there are no big stars. Therefore, the game is based on a fighting team performance.
Latvia hasn't shown much in the World Cup qualification so far. They lost to both Montenegro (1-2) and the Netherlands (0-2). Only against Turkey they managed to share points after a 3-3 draw. The victory over the football midget Gibraltar was a must (3-1).

The visiting Norwegians have a very promising generation, players like Haaland, Ødegaard, Hauge, Thorsby and Elyounoussi are already among the very good players and they are still at the beginning of their careers.
In their last World Cup qualification match against Netherlands, they managed to show a very good performance. Already after 20 minutes of play, Norway was already in the lead. Netherlands managed to equalise, but Norway were not ashamed of their performance. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.
In the next 3 matches they managed to win twice, 3-0 against Gibraltar and 1-0 against Montenegro. They lost only to Turkey (0-3.)

If the visitors can follow up their performance, I am not worried about them winning. And given the form of the Norwegian shooters, in addition to a win, I'll bet that at least 3 goals will also be scored.

Prediction:
Norway and over 2.5 goals @ 1.90 (bet365)

Should have been 5:0 but ok. If Norway go out because of goal difference 🤦‍♂️

Sometimes I think these teams don't realize that goal difference is the tiebreaker here. Misses like King's in the last few minutes could be important but it seems like no one realizes this.
