Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Color Line Stadion, Aalesund.
The two struggling sides will square off on Sunday as Aalesund welcome Brann. Both teams were beaten in their last two matches, so getting back on winning track is crucial, particularly for Brann who are aiming top three.
Aalesund are sitting in the middle of the table with 22 points collected. They dropped in the standings after July’s horrendous performances – three defeats from three matches. The hosts even failed to score in the previous month.
Aalesund are the third worst side on the home turf. At Color Line Stadion, they only picked up 12 points from 4 victories. They are yet to draw in front of their own fans as they were beaten in the remaining four outings.
Brann fell out of the top three after the defeats from Stabaek and Sarpsborg 08. The latter significantly hurt their chances of finishing the season in UEFA zone, so the visitors must get back to winning ways immediately.
Brann are focused on their home matches, hence their away record is unimpressive – only 2 wins in addition to 3 draws and defeats apiece.
