Norway hosts Latvia in round 9 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Saturday, November 13th at Ulleval Stadion (Oslo).
Norway has a historic opportunity to take 2nd place in the group and try to get to the World Cup. It remains to take two steps - to play against Latvia and the Netherlands. Today the Norwegians are in 2nd position with 17 points scored. The gap from the 3rd Turkey is two points. In the last six qualifying matches, the Norwegians did not suffer a single defeat (four victories and two draws).
Latvia has five points after eight rounds and is in the 5th place in the group standings. Naturally, the team has long had no chance of competing for a trip to Qatar. In eight qualifying matches, the Latvians chalked up only one victory, two draws, and five defeats with a goal difference of 8-13.
In the first head-to-head match in the group stage, Latvia lost to Norway at home with a score of 0-2. These opponents played against each other only three times. Norway gained two victories, and the Latvians won once. Six of the last eight official home matches of Norway ended with Under 3.5 goals scored. I'm not sure that Norway will experience any problems against Latvia at home. The Scandinavians have not only a higher class but also an advantage in the form of the home pitch. Moreover, they have much higher motivation. Still, they continue to fight for a trip to Qatar. Latvia is simply playing out the qualification, having no tasks.
