The arrival of new manager Stefan Kuntz is expected to induce confidence into the Turkish team, which has suffered some big losses in crucial games. Kuntz has been able to achieve a decent amount of success with the youth setups in the German national team. Norway will be missing a number of key players including Erling Haaland.
Total goals under 2.5
The lack of Erling Haaland will put Norway at a significant disadvantage compared to their Turkish counterparts, who have conceded a lot of goals in recent matches. However, the presence of Kuntz should change the dynamics of the game. Furthermore, Turkey are quite strong at home and this will make things difficult for Norway.
Both teams to score – yes
Norway will be aware that Turkey have kept just one clean sheet – against minnows Gibraltar – in the last five games. Norway are not in too better shape themselves after only managing two clean sheets from the last five games in all competitions.

Turkey vs Norway: Match Preview and Team News
Turkey would be well aware that it would be difficult to recover from a mediocre start of the qualification campaign if things do not start well under Stefan Kuntz. The thrashing at the hands of Netherlands was more than a catalyst for the managerial change. Caglar Soyuncu, who plays for Leicester City, is the only player unavailable due to suspension.
Norway will be without many key players for this game. The big absentees would be Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and Joshua King from Watford. However, the team still has a decent amount of creativity which is highlighted by the inclusion of Martin Odegaard. If Norway find a way past the lack of threat up front, they might get something out of this game.
