Kristiansund vs Odd
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Kristiansund Stadion.
Kristiansund host Odd in the first Matchday after the summer interval in Eliteserien on Sunday.
Both teams showed a fine attacking form bagging three goals each in their last fixtures before the break. Can they bring such high-profile showings a month later when they take on each other?
Christian Michelsen can be satisfied with the job he has been doing with KBK ever since taking charge back in 2014. The team looks to be better and better with each new season. They currently sit 8th in the league ladder, only 6 points shy of the third-placed Molde.
A potential positive thread could easily get them involved in the battle for the Europa League spots next year. Sunday’s tie with Odd will certainly affect team’s ambitions which is why a win here would be of a massive significance for Michelsen and his troops.
Kristiansund vs Odd: Head-to-head
- This will only be the fourth head to head encounter between Kristiansund and Odd.
- The head to head tie is all level at a win, a draw and a defeat for each of the team sin past three meetings.
- Odd took four points from last term ties, but Kristiansund came on top when teams played each other in late-May this year at Skagerak Arena.
Kristiansund vs Odd: Prediction
Before the 3-1 win over the struggling Lillestrom side a month ago, Odd were on a poor run of form losing five and drawing one of six games in all competitions.
They will be up against a well-organized side which has already beaten them this season and we just have to try with the home win at the 2.25 odds here.
Moving forward, Odd lost four and drew one of last five games on the road conceding two or more goals in four of these during the process.
Kristiansund notched two goals away at Skagerak Arena when these two sides first met in this term of Eliteserien and we don’t why they would not repeat such showing in front of the home crowd on Sunday.
The alternative bet is KBK to net two or more goals in the match at the odds of 2.20.
