On November 16, the match of the qualifying campaign of the world championship between the Netherlands and Norway will take place. According to the bookmakers’ beliefs, guests have little chance of catching even one point. Let’s try to understand the pre-match layouts.
Louis van Gaal’s team leads the group with 20 points: six wins, two draws and one loss. The Netherlands launched an attack, which resulted in 31 goals scored, and found no arguments against eight claims of the opponents’ attack. The Netherlands is two points ahead of the nearest pursuer.
The statistics of the home confrontations of the Van Gaal team took shape as follows: four wins with a total score of 18-1. For comparison, this is how the Netherlands played on the road: two wins, two draws and one defeat. Scored 13, conceded seven.
It seems logical to refer to the latest confrontations of the Netherlands national team against teams, plus or minus the level of Norway: 2: 4 and 6: 1 with Turkey, 0: 2 from the Czech Republic, 3: 0 with North Macedonia, 2: 0 over Austria, 3: 2 against Ukraine.
After nine rounds, Norway landed in third position with 18 points in the asset: five wins, three draws and one defeat. The goal difference is glued together from 15 goals scored and 6 conceded goals.
Outside of their native land, Staale Solbakken’s team is deploying such a scale performance: three wins and one draw. The goal difference fell to 7-1.
The following statistical detail is noteworthy: six of the last seven official confrontations of Norway have been low.
Also, I would note that the Norwegians are out of the game: Erling Holland, Rune Yarstein, Christopher Iyer and Sander Berge.
According to the 1xbet v.83, guests have little chance of catching even one point. The probability of their victory is estimated at 6.8, while the home team’s win is quoted at 1.45. You can get a draw for 4.8.
Forecast and rate
The Netherlands national team could have already qualified for the World Cup in the last round, but managed to miss the victory over Montenegro, leading in two goals by the 82nd minute. Norway surprised no less by scoring a goalless draw in the home game with Latvia. Given the staffing problems of the Norwegians, I do not think that they have a decent chance of catching on the result in Rotterdam.
My bet is “W1 and Total Under (4.5)” for 1.86.
