Norway vs Kosovo predictions: A low-scoring affair

Given that three of Norway’s last five, and all of Kosovo's last five matches featured less than three goals, we don't think these teams will score up to three goals between them.

Key stats

  • All of Kosovo’s last five matches went south of the 2.5-goal marker.
  • Norway have no wins in their last three games.
  • Interestingly, Norway opened the scoring in 10 of their last 11 matches.
  • This will be the first encounter between these sides.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Norway are bookies’ favourites

  • Norway: 2/5 (1.40) – 71.4%
  • Draw: 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%
  • Kosovo: 13/2 (7.50) – 13.3%

*Odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

It's worth mentioning that both teams have struggled to find their footing in recent months, as they both won just one of their last four respective games.

Considering they also have the advantage of playing at home, Norway are the expected winners at 2/5 (1.40). Teams with these odds usually have a 71.4% probability of winning.

Additionally, at least one team blanked in six of Kosovo's last seven matches. For this reason, BTTS – no has an appealing look at 13/20 (1.65). That one has a 60.6% chance of landing.

Last five H2Hs: First encounter between the sides

Both teams will meet for the first time on Wednesday, which isn't surprising considering Kosovo's first official match took place in March 2014.

Team news and form guide

Kosovo: Hoping to improve their abysmal run of form

Like their opponents, Kosovo did not qualify for Euro 2024. They have not particularly enjoyed their best form in recent months, scoring just once in their last three matches. It'll be interesting to see how Franco Foda’s troops will match up against Norway.

Predicted lineup: Bekaj (GK), Dellova, Aliti, Krasniqi, Hadergjonaj, Zyba, Vojvoda, Berisha, Bytyqi, Muslija & Rashani.

Player to watch: Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland won the Premier League's Golden Boot award for the second consecutive season, thanks to his 27 goals in 31 appearances. The Norwegian hitman has been in sensational form these past few weeks, scoring seven times in his last six matches across all competitions.

However, Haaland blanked in his last four appearances for Norway, so it'll be interesting to see if he can rediscover his goal-scoring form for country against Kosovo.
