Aalesund vs Bodo/Glimt
Date: 23 April 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Color Line Stadion (Aalesund).
The teams from the two completely separate end of the Eliteserien standings will meet each other on Sunday afternoon in Gameweek No 3 at Color Line Stadion in Aalesund.
Bodo/Glimt got off to a fantastic beginning to the 2023 season with impressive displays in the back-to-back comprehensive clean sheet wins over Sarpsborg and Stabaek.
They are the only team in the league with a maximum of six points from the opening two games and we have plenty of reasons to expect one of the main title contenders to continue their superb start this weekend.
Amahl William Pellegrino was especially inspired seven days ago as he led Bodo/Glimt to a 4-0 drubbing of Stabaek with a hat-trick.
The Norwegian forward should be the main threat to Aalesund’s goal here on the back of such a performance and he is our main recommendation for the anytime goalscorer picks.
The difference in quality between these two outfits is huge as Bodo/Glimt have a much bigger budget. Considering the two outfits’ form at the beginning of the season, a commanding away win has to be the way to go.
Aalesund, who came 9th in the previous term of Eliteserien, are yet to score a goal in the new campaign, following two separate 0-1 defeats to Valerenga and Stromsgodset.
Aalesund vs Bodo/Glimt Head-to-head

Aalesund vs Bodo/Glimt Prediction
The value is great with the 2.50 odds offered for the away win to nil knowing the hosts are yet to score in the new season while Bodo/Glimt have a goal difference of 6-0 after the opening two rounds.
Alternatively, we like the 1.83 odds for Amahl Pellegrino to score anytime on Sunday. The Norwegian forward completed a hattrick in the last weekend’s thumping of Stabaek.
