Faroe Islands vs Norway Match Preview
Hosting Norway is nearly as close to a local derby as it gets for the Faroe Islands, but it’s the visitors to Torshavn who are expected to win this European Championship qualifier.
Roughly in the middle of a triangle between Iceland, Norway and Scotland but with plenty of water on each side, the Faroes is not the easiest place logistically to which to travel, yet this is not too difficult a test from a footballing perspective.
Norway are following Spain three days earlier in making the trip to Torshavn (result not known at the time of writing) as the aforementioned three teams in a northern-heavy Group F compete with Sweden, Romania and Malta for two automatic berths at Euro 2020.
At least if either or both of Norway and Sweden miss out, they have the fall-back of a place in the play-offs which they secured via their results in the UEFA Nations League.
On Friday, Norway were at home to Romania and it has to be said their results in the previous two qualifiers they played were better than the performances, losing 2-1 away to Spain and drawing 3-3 at home to Sweden having been clear second best in each.
The Faroe Islands generally fare creditably when hosting opposition of a similarly lowly standard, but the likelihood here is that they will sustain a fairly decisive defeat.
