Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Panama play host to Barbados at Estadio Rommel Fernandez in what is expected to be a very exciting World Cup qualifier. Panama kicked off 2021 with a goalless draw with Serbia, but it has to be noted that the European Eagles rested key players in the January friendly. Los Canaleros aim to return to winning ways, but the game against Barbados will be anything but a walk in the park for the team.
Russell Latapy’s troops, on the other hand, have not been in action for more than one year. Barbados are eager to impress in their first meeting with Panama, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match. A close encounter is on the cards at Estadio Rommel Fernandez, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.

Highlighted Team (Panama):
Norway are a Nordic side that participated three times at the FIFA World Cup finals (1938, 1994 and 1998). The Norwegians were producing fine performances at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, with the team setting up a meeting with Italy in the last 16 of the showpiece tournament thanks to a 2-1 win over Brazil in their last group match.
However, the Azzurri proved to be a big catch for Norway and thanks to Bobo Vieri’s goal the Italians made it to the quarter-finals. Norway only once qualified for the European Championship finals, with the team suffering elimination in the group stages of the 2000 tournament in Belgium and Netherlands. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the most famous Norwegian player and it is well known that he helped Manchester United beat Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.
The “Baby-faced” striker scored the winner for the Red Devils in the dying seconds of the match. Norway play their home games at Ullevaal Stadion, which was opened in September, 1926. The capacity of the venue is 28.000.
