Albania vs Norway – International Friendly: In one of the several international friendlies taking place this Monday
With the match taking place in Elbasani, Albania.
The local side Albania and the visiting side Norway face off at the Elbasani Arena, in what will be the 5th meeting in their history,
with the last meeting taking place in 2013, on a match that finished with a 1-1 draw, on the Qualifying stage for the 2014 World Cup, in Brazil.
The home side comes into this match with a lot of reasons to feel confident about their future,
given the remarkable improvement of the European team in recent years, going from being another low-tier team in terms of the International competitions to being a team that already manages,
with less difficulty, to put up good fights against the strongest teams of the European qualifiers, like they’ve proven on their recent qualification campaign for the World Cup in Russia.
The team is coming off a streak of results that shows some alternation, although it is also true that they only have 1 victory on their last 4 matches, having had 2 losses and 1 draw on the remaining matches.
As for the visiting side, they didn’t have an exactly fortunate qualifying stage, once again failing to qualify for a big international competition,
like it has been their habit for some years, ending with a very considerable disadvantage to Northern Ireland on their group C of the European qualifiers for the World Cup.
The team, that now has an experienced and competent manager on the bench (Lagerback), is also coming off a stage of some alternation in terms of results, winning in 3 of their last 5 matches played, and losing the other two.
Albania vs Norway – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With both teams being considerably consistent on the defensive point of view and both of them coming off a rough qualification stage and that didn’t end on the best possible way,
I believe on a warm match, more in a practice rhythm and therefore without many goals.
|Under 2.5 goals||
