Forecast and rate
The quotes from 1xbet download are as follows: 2.25 for a win for Turkey, 3.25 for a draw and with odds of 3.35, you can bet on a win for Norway.
The Turks started having problems back at Euro 2020, where they lost all three matches in the group and did not make the playoffs. The team did not hold the last training camp in the selection for the 2022 World Cup, and the last defeat from the Netherlands added even more doubts.
Norway has not lost in qualifying for a long time and is approaching the match with three wins in four matches. The absence of Holann, who has scored 4 goals in three games, will clearly affect the performance. However, we believe that the guests will be closer to victory than the rival. Bet – Home (0) with odds 2.41.
