Bodo/Glimt vs Ranheim
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Aspmyra Stadion (Bodø).
Bodo occupies the second position in the table, and with their two games in hand, has the pole spot easily in their sights. The fact that the toppers, Molde, failed to win three of their last five league ties is welcoming news for Glimt. With their home advantage for the day, they hope the toppers keep going with their current form, while they themselves put some wins on the board.
Helping their cause is the arrival of this set of guests. Ranheim is winless in their last four ties in the competition, and two of these were against relegation-battlers. They have also struggled to score goals once away from home, as the worst away squad, Stromsgodset, has scored just one fewer goal than them.
Bodo will have to find their confidence back first, after their huge loss to Valerenga the last day, and in all probability, this game will serve that purpose too.

Bodo/Glimt vs Ranheim Prediction
Bodo is one of the best teams in the country and is a potential topper of the table. If they manage to win both of their games in hand, no matter what Molde, the current leader, does, Glimt will take the prime spot.
They won three of their last four games and was unbeaten in 25 of their last 29 fixtures. They had separate five-game, and six-game winning streaks in this midst, and also a ten-tie unbeaten run.
At home, they were invincible in 13 of their last 14 and won ten of their last twelve with ease. They also scored two or more goals in nine of their last twelve home ties, while keeping clean sheets in three of their last four.
Meanwhile, Ranheim was winless in three of their last four match-ups, and in two of their last three away from home. Moreover, they conceded two or more goals in three of the last four h2h clashes, while failing to score in the last two. Also, they are winless at this venue since 2013.
As things stand, expect a comfortable day for the hosts on the pitch.
