Ireland Double Chance
Ireland have had little success on the international stage in recent years though the Boys in Green remain an incredibly tough team to beat in Dublin. Indeed, Ireland have lost just three of their last 20 matches in all competitions on home soil and they have the resilience to avoid defeat again when they host Norway in Thursday’s friendly. Norway have failed to win 50% of their last 14 away matches and that record suggests that backing Ireland in the double chance market could be the way to go.
Both Teams to Score
Ireland have become a far-more entertaining team to watch under Stephen Kenny and many of their matches have been high on action and laden with incident. Each of their last three fixtures have featured goals at both ends and the Irish have notched nine times in their last four home games. Goals at both ends could be on the cards again on Thursday when Ireland welcome a Norway team with Erling Haaland in tow to Dublin and bettors should consider placing a stake in that direction.
