Norway v Romania Betting Tips & Predictions
Norway have had a frantic start to Euro 2020 qualifying, with Lars Lagerback’s team competing favourably in Valencia when losing 2-1 to Spain before an exciting 3-3 draw at home to Sweden.
The Norwegians led 2-0 against their Scandinavian neighbours before trailing 3-2 going into injury-time, although they managed to score a last-gasp equaliser and these opening two matches suggest that they’ll be competitive in this section.
Norway have failed to reach a European Championship since 2000 although Lagerback’s team look full of goals and they have Bournemouth striker Josh King who has scored fourteen times for his country in thirty-nine appearances.
The Nations League was a big success for the team, with four wins coming in the six games which means they’ll have a play-off for Euro 2020 even if they fail to finish in the top two of this section.
Romania lost 2-1 at Sweden in their Euro 2020 qualifying opener before a 4-1 victory over the Faroe Islands and they’ll be encouraged by facing opponents who have conceded five goals in their first two matches.
Realistically, the Romanians can ill-afford to lose games such as these and qualify for Euro 2020, with the team having gone unbeaten in their Nations League campaign when winning three and drawing three matches.
This included a 2-2 draw away to Serbia and we think the best way to play this particular match is back BTTS, with both sides going for a maximum haul which could put them into contention for second spot behind Spain.
Nicolae Stanciu has a one in three goals record from midfield, while Claudiu Keseru boasts similar statistics and we feel as though this game could open up and see the net bulge several times.
