EURO 2024 QUALIFIERS: The Ultra previews SCOTLAND v NORWAY with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
7.45pm We finish the week on BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE with more Euro 2024 Qualifying action, and the highlight on Sunday comes from Group A as Scotland host Norway. This is going to be absolute party at Hampden Park as Scotland celebrate reaching a major tournament. At the start of the Group the general feeling was Spain would top the Group with Norway in second, and Scotland could hope for a playoff spot, or perhaps even be in a position to beat Norway here and finish second. To head into the final two games already certain of reaching Euro 2024 has been superb achievement for Scotland!
They have been playing superb football for a while now, and they fully deserve this. They started qualifying with a 3-0 win over Cyprus followed by the huge 2-0 win here against Spain, and that has just set the tone for this qualifying. Norway haven’t been at their best, even with Erling Haaland and they head into this game aiming for a playoff spot. Haaland got a knock on his ankle in a friendly during the week as prep for this fixture, and he has to be a doubt for this game. Also, don’t forget we have a huge game between Manchester City and Liverpool coming up in the Premier League too.
Haaland will want to play in this game however; Norway aren’t certain of a playoff spot based on their Nations League ranking and a win here will be important. There’s a huge amount of possibilities with the playoff spots heading into the final games; Norway need to win and see what happens. We have a very open market here with Scotland coming into the game as the favourites. The home win is trading 2.46 with Norway 3.45 and the draw is 3.25 at the time of writing.
Scotland drew 2-2 away to Georgia earlier in the week, and we landed a nice lay on them here as they went into that game the 2.0 favourites. I’m not sure I’d want to be against them here now they are back at home. The only issue is that they essentially have nothing to play for – it will be a party atmosphere and it is a chance to see some new or younger players too in a competitive fixture. Haaland out will be a big blow for Norway, and it will be fastest figures first in the market when the team news comes out.
I’m happy to stay away from the match odds market here however. I do fancy Scotland, but I’m not that confident to back them with nothing to play for. This game could have a lot of chances with Scotland not having a reason to sit back and Norway needing to win to boost their playoff chances. Over 2.5 goals is trading 2.19 and this looks a nice position – I actually thought we might see Overs trading odds on! Scotland have been very entertaining lately and I can see more goals in this one.
The Ultra Says:
Two points win Over 2.5 goals at 2.19 with BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE.
