Hungary v Norway Betting Tips
It just wouldn't go in for Norway on Thursday night, they huffed and puffed and had plenty of possession, but they could have been still playing now and there's every chance they would still be 1-0 down. It was just one of those nights in Oslo and now Per-Mathias Hogmo's side have it all to do.
Hungary scored after 26 minutes and it was the decisive goal in the first leg Lazsio Kleinheiser put his side one step closer to France 2016. Hungary have not quaified for a major tournament for 30 years and they are ever so close to righting that wrong. They have made good progress this year and handily for them, they also have a very decent home record
Northern Ireland beat them here, but that was their only defeat in the qualifying group stage and their biggest setback. They only conceded 3 goals when hosting during the qualifying stage, 2 to NI and one to the Faroe Island They drew 0-0 with Romania and Greece, so they know how to keep it tight should they need to
Norway had 21 efforts on goal and still drew a blank, so it's evident which aspect of their game they need to improve on if they are to qualify and they'll have to go for it here. A 0-0 would suit Hungary just fine, but it's hard to imagine them taking the risk and they will look to hit their opponents on the counter.
Pal Andre Eland hit the post late and they had an effort cleared off the line after watching Gabor Kiraly make save after save, it was a frustrating night for the Norweigans and they must put that right in Budapest. They will be on the front foot from the off and although the odds suggest we're wrong, we fancy both teams to find the net. Norway have got to be on the front foot and that will leave spaces at the back. Hungary let the Faroe Islands score here, so that will give the visitors hope.

Norway had a mixed away record in qualifying, they won 3 matches, against Azerbaijan, Malta and Bulgaria, but as soon as they came up against trickier opposition, they were beaten. They lost 2-1 to Italy and were thumped 5-1 by Croatia. This is a different scenario and they will need to be tactical. If they can stop Hungary from scoring again, they are in with a chance. Their opponents will be happy to keep parity for the majority of the match and hit Norway on the break.
With Norway looking limp in the final third, I think they could be punished for their wastefulness.
The second of our Hungary v Norway betting tips is Hungary to win. They can be backed at 13/8 with Paddy Power
The first half proved to be the highest scoring half in the 1st leg, but this could be a different story. With constant Norway pressure, gaps could appear at the back as legs begin to tire. It could mean we see a late goal or two and the 2nd half to be the highest scoring half is attractively priced.
The third of our Hungary v Norway betting tips is the 2nd half as the highest scoring half. It can be backed at 6/5 with Paddy Power
