Bodo/Glimt vs Lillestrom
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Aspmyra Stadion (Bodo).
Bodo/Glimt is going to face Lillestrom in the premier round of the Norwegian Eliteserien on Sunday afternoon. Home side got recently promoted and they want to keep their place in the top flight, while the visitors are looking for the better season in compare to the previous one.
The hosts managed to secure their place in the Eliteserien after winning the top spot in the 1. Division last season. They commanded the second-tier of Norwegian league pyramid and were the best side by all parameters. They suffered only three defeats, scored 83 goals and suffered only one defeat at home pitch. They haven’t changed the squad a lot and their top goalscorer from the last season, Kristian Opseth, who scored 28 times, stayed in the team and wants to have the repetition of a great individual season. They definitely have the quality to secure their place in Eliteserien at the end of the campaign.
After several respectable seasons, away side had a disappointing one last time since they have finished it on 12th position. They were on the verge of the danger zone through the entire campaign and didn’t manage to push themselves towards the middle of the table. Although Arne Erlandsen’s side did well in the front, their defensive work was bad and spoiled everything. However, they were not so bad when playing away from home, but still they have booked only three away wins. This time, they had an active transfer window, but without any big signings. It seems that the middle of the table should be their maximum reach this season.
Bodo/Glimt vs Lillestrom: Head-to-head
The hosts of this clash haven’t tasted a win against their opposition since 2012 when they celebrated in the Norwegian Cup. In the last two occasions they split the points in the matches where both teams were able to score. In terms of goals scored in their clashes, they used to be very efficient, but the last three stayed under 2.5 margin.
Bodo/Glimt vs Lillestrom: Prediction
Home side should be able to open the campaign with a win, although they haven’t celebrated against Lillestrom for a while.
This one should be more efficient than the previous clashes and the spectators should be able to see at least three goals.
