Brann vs Valerenga
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Brann Stadion (Bergen).
The home team is sitting in the eighth spot after 11 rounds are completed. They will meet an in- form Valerenga this Saturday. Currently the hosts are going through a winless run that extends to four match days. The recent league fixture saw them losing to Stromsgodset away from home.
The visitors lost their second game of the season in the recent clash with Molde. But they are inside the top four of the table which is not a small feat for a team that finished tenth last season. From the 11 games they have five wins and four draws.

- The Bohemians have not lost to this opposition in seven previous meetings.
- Five of those seven matches finished with fewer than 2.5 goals in total.
- Brann previously won this fixture back in July 2016 at their home soil.
- All three latest head to head clashes at this ground were back to back draws.
- All three of them had fewer than 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
- Brann is presently on a two-match drawing run at home.
Brann vs Valerenga: Prediction
The Bohemians are one of the three teams that is yet to lose a home game. That means both their defeats came in matches on the road. This is their second consecutive away match, but I think compared to their previous opposition, Brann is much inferior.
Also, in recent times, the visitors did shine in head to head games also. So, it is safe to expect a Double Chance for either a draw or the visitors winning this one.
Their history shows there was very few goals when they met in recent years. But the hosts have a habit of conceding at home this season. They have given away goals in all six previous home fixtures even against teams below them in the table.
Valerenga have enough attacking talent in their squad to create some chances and convert them as well. But they are also prone to defensive mistakes away from home. So, I am backing both sides to score this weekend.
