Norway vs Northern Ireland Women – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Fresh from five straight wins, Norway Women are favourites to open their Group A account with a victory over Northern Ireland Women on Thursday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.
Highest Scoring Half: Second
Norway Women are expected to prove too strong for their less-illustrious opponents from Northern Ireland in Thursday’s Group A clash in the European Championships, though the largest wedge of action could occur in the second half. Norway notched 12 goals in their last two encounters with NI, though it’s worth noting that eight of their efforts were lodged after the interval. It might take Norway some time to soften Northern Ireland’s resolve again here and we recommend a dive into this niche market as a result.
Both Teams to Score
Northern Ireland Women are likely to be on the back foot from the off on Thursday and as such, they might find it difficult to manufacture any goalscoring chances at the opposite end. NI failed to register in each of their last three meetings with Norway and they look short of the required quality to pierce their opponent’s well-marshalled backline again on Thursday. With that in mind, a stake on both teams not to score is recommended at the prices on offer.

Norway vs Northern Ireland Women Team News & Injuries
Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this week’s clash between Norway and Northern Ireland Women below.
Norway Women Predicted Lineup
There is no Elise Thorsnes in Norway's squad for the Euros, while Roma's Emilie Haavi is also absent. Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland retired last year and her goals will be missed. Barcelona pair Ingrid Syrstad Engen and Caroline Graham Hansen are both included, however, as is PSG starlet Celin Bizet Ildhusoy.
Predicted Lineup for Norway Women: Petersen – Blakstad, Mjelde, Thorisdottir, Josendal – Eiekeland, Maanum, Engen, Reiten – Hansen, Hegerberg
Northern Ireland Women Predicted Lineup
The majority of Northern Ireland's squad is made up of part-time domestic players, with Liverpool's Rachel Furness and Everton's Simone Magill two of the small batch of stars playing for major professional clubs. As a consequence, little is expected of Northern Ireland at the Euros.
Predicted Lineup for Norway Women: Burns – Nelson, McKenna, Burrows – Caldwell, Furness, Magee, Vance – Magill, McGuinness, Wade
