NOR vs TUR Dream11: After both secured victories in their opening World Cup European Qualification games in midweek, Norway and Turkey collide here in Group G. Whilst Norway brushed aside Gibraltar 0-3, Turkey stunned the Netherlands by beating Frank de Boer’s side 4-2 and at one point were 3-0 up against the Dutch. With both sides in excellent form offensively when taking into account the goals they scored in midweek, an entertaining contest is likely in prospect with plenty of goalmouth action. Whilst the result itself could go either way with both teams capable of picking up the three points.
