Bodo/Glimt vs Stromsgodset
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 16 June 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Aspmyra Stadion (Bodø).
Bodo has two games in hand, and if employed well, they could take the pole spot off Molde. As of now, the former is five points behind the topper.
Despite things looking bright for them, their last outing did not end in a win. Visitors Brann undid Bodo’s efforts to get to the top of league standings by delivering a home loss upon them.
Two goals in the space of three minutes early in the first half took the spirit out of the home team, and though they did hit one back later, it proved to be not enough.
Stromsgodset is struggling to avoid the relegation line catching up to them, and with Sarpsborg and Stabaek, both teams in the exit zone, having games in hand, the visitors of this tie will be looking for a win, to put some distance between themselves and their chasers.
Bodo/Glimt vs Stromsgodset Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the last ten wins went to Stromsgodset.

Bodo/Glimt vs Stromsgodset Prediction
Stromsgodset is going through a rough stretch, and they have been able to return just four wins from their last fifteen matches, while on the road, they lost three of the last four, and was winless in 19 of their last 23.
On the other hand, Bodo was unbeaten in 22 of their last 25 fixtures, and at home, they won eight of their last ten appearances and was unbeaten in 17 of their last 20.
The last time these two met, Bodo recorded a huge win with a five-goal margin, and that too away from home. With them having a chance to take the pole spot, courtesy their games in hand, count on Glimt to ride their home advantage to a win.
As far as goals are concerned, Stromsgodset found the back of the net in 10 of the last 11 h2h ties and did so twice or more in seven of their last eight visits to this venue. Finally, Bodo failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four straight matches.
It seems most likely that we will have goals at either end of the pitch this Sunday.
