Nevertheless, mid-week’s round is about to bring a serious test for the Bergen side given they will lock horns with the likes of Haugesund who sit third after nine rounds of the competition. The Arabs will come into this in an impressive attacking form having snatched as many as nine goals in last four matches across competitions.

The visitors won six and drew one of last seven outings in all competitions and they notched three goals past Kristiansund at the weekend. Frederik Gytkjaer has been the standout performer for Haugesund in these matches, netting three goals in last two appearances.

Brann vs Haugesund: Head-to-head

  • The hosts lead the head to head tie by six wins ahead of 25th meeting with Haugesund.
  • They won 7, drew 4 and lost 3 of 14 home ties against Haugesund.
  • Each of last five H2H meetings saw both teams on the scoreline.

Brann vs Haugesund: Prediction

It will be very interesting to see how the best defensive line in the league will cope with the red-hot attack of Haugesund’s. The hosts conceded only two goals in nine Eliteserien matches so far and they will enter this off the back of seven straight clean sheets in all competitions.

Brann also have a predator in the final third in the like of Steffen Skalevik who notched five goals in last five matches. He should have space to produce here as well since Haugesund play attackingly-oriented football. You can back Skalevik to score anytime at the 2.10 odds here.

We’ll alternatively go with the home win, set at the 1.61 odds, backing Brann to maintain the amazing form at the start of the season, in spite of the fact they are about to tackle an in-form opposition here.

Brann vs Haugesund: Bet Tips

  • Steffen Skalevik to score anytime @ 2.10
  • Brann to win @ 1.61.
