Tip Reasoning

  • Turkey have failed to win five of their last six games, only defeating Gibraltar during that spell.
  • Norway have avoided defeat in five of their last six games.
  • Turkey have drawn their last two home qualifiers while Norway have won each of their last three on the road.

Injury-hit Norway too big to avoid Turkey defeat 

Senol Gunes paid the price for Turkey’s slip from first to third in World Cup qualifying off the back of their awful Euro 2020 Finals performance and was replaced by ex-Germany Under-21 boss Stefan Kuntz last month.

His first match in charge will be pivotal in deciding which teams make it through from Group G as the Crescent Stars take on a Norway team that they beat 3-0 in Malaga last March.

The loss of their home advantage for that game was a big blow for a side that are rarely beaten in Oslo and Norway also hit the post, had a goal disallowed, a man sent off and lost their starting goalkeeper to injury over the course of a disastrous 90 minutes.

The big news surrounding this game is the absence of Erling Haaland, which the Borussia Dortmund striker confirmed himself on Monday.

But he’s not the only key first-team absence for the visitors to contend with as Josh King, Alexander Sorloth, Kristoffer Ajer and Jonas Svensson are also missing.

So it would seem the stars are aligning against them again with only midfielder Okay Yokuslu likely to be missing from the Turkish team.

However, Norway have proven themselves to be useful travellers, having won their last three away qualifiers – including a 1-0 victory in Montenegro against a side Turkey only drew with at home.

Norway offer the best value because Turkey are low on confidence right now, having failed to beat Latvia and Montenegro in their last two home qualifiers.

So we are happy to go against them here by backing Norway in the double chance market with a tentative 1-1 prediction to make it three home score draws on the trot for the hosts.
