Norway V Northern Ireland 14/10/20 – Football Betting Tips
Norway sit second in Nations League B1 on 6 points from 3 matches. Their sole defeat came at the hands of Austria in Matchday 1.
In Erling Haaland they have one of the form strikers in Europe. The Borussia Dortmund striker smashed a hat-trick past Romania in his nation’s 4-0 win on Sunday.
Haaland also scored twice when his side dismantled Northern Ireland (5-1) in the reverse fixture back in September.
With this in mind, it’s hard to see anything other than another win for the Norwegians tonight.

Norway V Northern Ireland Prediction
Northern Ireland on the other hand have had a disastrous Nations League.
They’ve just 1 point from their three matches, and consequently sit bottom of the group, and are looking at relegation.
Irish will be focused on the Euros
Ian Baraclough’s men are just one match away from next summer’s delayed Euros, but in truth, they have struggled badly in the Nations League.
So far they’ve lost at home to Norway and Austria, and have just the 1 point from their away draw with Romania on Matchday 1.
Their main focus will surely be more on the aforementioned Euros. The Irish have a play-off against Slovakia next month at Windsor Park, and that is bound to take precedence.
I can only imagine Ian Baraclough will have that match in mind when he puts a team on the field tonight, and why my tip is Norway to win on the Handicap.
