Europe: World Cup Qualifiers
Norway has a chance to strengthen their spot on the log with what should be an easy win for them here. The reverse fixture saw them win 3-0 after the Gibraltar goalie made a number of sensational saves. Although this is supposed to be an easy and high scoring win for them here, Norway has not beaten a -2 handicap in their last 6 matches against teams outside of the FIFA top 100.
Gibraltar average 4 goals per game in this WCQ and even though that is not great, they have drawn or won the first 40 minutes in 9 consecutive competitive games! The are truly outmatched here and will likely get a hiding, but we think they will come out with full force and try and limit the damage that Norway will probably impose on them.
We think Norway will win comfortably but that Gibraltar will not be completely lacking in defense.
