Lillestrøm vs Bodo/Glimt
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 5 November 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Åråsen Stadion (Lillestrøm).
The host is in urgent need of a win to avoid relegation and they have to face an opponent who has never defeated them at home ever on Monday’s game.
The hosts have one of the worst defense in the league conceding 41 in 27 games. From those matches, they have won only 6 and lost 12 games which are the reason why they are 14th in the league awaiting relegation.
They are winless in 4 matches with an active 2 game losing streak going on. In last 6 games from all competitions they have only 2 wins. At home, they are undefeated in last 4 games from all competitions with 3 wins coming in succession.
Glimt, on the other hand, are winless in 7 of their recent games from all competitions, with 4 wins included.
They are also winless in the last 4 games with 2 losses included. In the last 6 games on road, they have only one win and it was against another sorry side Tromso.
So with 2 points between them, this is a do-or-die game for the team in the relegation zone. A loss for either team means they may not be in the top level of Norwegian football next season.
