Cyprus v Norway Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Thursday 12th October 2023

 

Norway will be going all-out to keep their dreams of making it to the 2024 European Championships alive when they face bottom Group A side Cyprus in Larnaca on Thursday evening.

Cyprus are yet to get themselves off the mark in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, the side having lost each of their opening five matches by an aggregate scoreline of 17-2. This is in stark contrast to their qualifiers for the last European Championships where they had amassed ten points by this stage. The Cypriots are one of just six sides yet to claim their first point, only Liechtenstein (19) and San Marino (21) leaking more goals than Cyprus’ seventeen, the White & Blues having suffered comprehensive defeats to Scotland (3-0) and Spain (6-0) in their last two outings in the contest.

Should Cyprus fail to get the better of Norway on Thursday or Spain win or draw against Scotland, then they will be out of contention for a place in Euro 2024. Nevertheless, the home side will take some comfort from the fact that they have lost just three of their last four home games across competitions, this including victories over Greece and Estonia in last year’s UEFA Nations League campaign.

Norway suffered a poor start to their Euro 2024 qualifiers with just a single point collected from their opening three outings, a 1-1 draw sitting uncomfortably between defeats to Spain and group leaders Scotland. Nevertheless, subsequent wins over Cyprus and Georgia ensure that they are still in with a chance of qualifying for the group stages of Euro 2024 for the first time since 2000 and with wins in each of the last 11 meetings with Cyprus, confidence will be in high in the visitors’ camp.

Cyprus are underdogs for this meeting despite the fact that they enjoy home advantage. Norway can’t afford to drop any points here and we envisage them having few problems brushing the hosts aside on their way to a vital three points.
