Northern Ireland Nations League

Northern Ireland continue their Nations League fixtures with a tricky trip to face Norway this week.

Ian Baraclough’s men narrowly scraped past Bosnia & Herzegovina in their Euro 2020 play-off showdown last week before being defeated by Austria at the weekend.

Northern Ireland have failed to recapture the same form as they had under Baraclough’s predecessor Michael O’Neill, but he will use the Norway clash as a time to hone his options.

Norway ran out 5-1 winners over Northern Ireland during their last meeting in September.

Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland netted twice in the rout. He also scored a hat-trick against Romania at the weekend and will be keen for more to help ease the disappointment of Norway’s play-off defeat to Serbia last week.

Norway v Northern Ireland team news

Norway: The Norwegians are without Orjan Nyland and Stefan Johansen, but everyone else is fit and raring to go.

Haaland is expected to lead the line though Josh King may have a chance to shine, while Martin Odegaard is likely to feature.

Northern Ireland: Niall McGinn, Corry Evans and Josh Magennis are all in contention to start, though Baraclough has no injury concerns to enforce a reshuffle.

He may seek to tweak the formation given Northern Ireland’s heavy defeat last time against Norway.

Our prediction: Norway v Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland have lost a little of their aura despite a gutsy, spirited penalty victory over Bosnia & Herzegovina last week.

The visitors are likely to set up in a defensive manner to prevent another onslaught, but in Haaland, King and Alexander Sorloth, Norway have plenty of firepower capable of battering a hole through many a defence.

Our prediction: Norway 3-1 Northern Ireland
