Kristiansund vs Ranheim Norwegian Eliteserien Match Preview 16th May 2018

Kristiansund BK vs Ranheim
Norwegian Eliteserien
Date: Wednesday, 16 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Kristiansund Stadion, Kristiansund

Shocking elimination from the national cup (2-0 loss to Hodd) was the first sign that something is wrong within Kristiansund’s lines. The follow up match against Haugesund resulted in another loss, 2-3 FT this time, so fans are pretty much desperate to see their team be victorious. The Owls will host Ranheim, newcomers in the top Norwegian flight and bookies marked them as warm favorites for the win here. Current odds are 2.05.

In terms of the current standings, visitors have had much more success than the hosts. Ranheim are sitting in high 4th place with 17 points, so it is fair to say this team is one of the most pleasant surprise packages in the season. Victory against Odd Grenland and draw against the reigning champions Rosenborg were impressive indeed.

Kristiansund dropped to 10th place after the already mentioned loss to Haugesund. Overall, their appearances at home have been solid so far – two victories, one draw and one loss. The average number of goals scored in this duels is less than 2.00 per match.

Kristiansund vs Ranheim: Head-to-head

These two opponents met relatively recently, in a friendly match at this stadium. Duel was played just before the start of new season and it ended without a winner 1-1.

Also, there were 20 duels in the past and hosts have the lead in terms of victories (7-3). Three out of the last five have seen both score at least one goal.

Kristiansund vs Ranheim: Prediction

Even though they are newcomers, Ranheim have shown much more than Kristiansund in the last couple of months. I will go for a draw or away win double chance here at 1.80. Team which destroyed Odd and won one point against Rosenborg should have earned more respect by the bookies.

Kristiansund scored in five out of last six appearances at home, so backing both teams to score at 1.75 is a good bet as well.
