This match has a hint of déjà vu about it, the Norwegian fans likely to compare this final group round to that of 2003 when their side found themselves in the same group as South Korea and France and needed a win over the former to guarantee their continuation in the competition. They managed this in convincing fashion with a 7-1 victory and went on to reach the quarter-finals of the tournament on that occasion. This is the very same scenario in 2019 with Norway needing to beat South Korea in order to secure their place in the last sixteen, France having already qualified from the group and Nigeria sitting level on points with the Scandinavians.
The evidence suggests that this shouldn’t be an issue for Norway given that they are almost certainly the second best side in the group and leaders France entertain Nigeria in the other game in the pool.

South Korea are effectively out of the competition and should they fail to win this match they will be heading home. They have already been beaten by France and Norway without a single goal being scored and the likelihood of them managing anything from tonight’s meeting looks pretty slim. The Norwegians are odds-on to win this match although from a betting perspective the real value looks to lie with backing the Scandinavians to be ahead at half-time and at the full-time whistle, Betway Bookmakers going 11/10 on Norway/Norway on HT/FT market.
