Odd BK vs Haugesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 23 June 2019]
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Skagerak Arena (Skien).
Odd was cruising towards the top spot, but their four-match winning run came to an end the last day. Hope remains though, as the team has two matches in hand, and is trailing by just three points from the top-most position.
They lost to Sarpsborg on the road, to a 2-0 scoreline. Against expectations, they were dominated by the hosts, and could not challenge for even a draw, let alone the three points.
Haugesund is on an unbeaten run of their own and possesses a comfortable mid-table position, courtesy to it. Last day, they had hosted the top-tier Brann and conceded a goal in the first half to invite some pressure.
Though they tried to claw their way back into the game, the scoreline remained intact at half time. The story changed in the second half though, as the hosts finally found the back of the net, to neutralize the lead of the visitors. The 1-1 scorecard remained unchanged till the final whistle.

- Odd kept six cleans sheets from the last eight clashes at home.
Odd vs Haugesund Prediction
Odds won nine of their last eleven games and were unbeaten in 13 of their last 15. At home, they are on an impressive seven-fixture winning streak and found the back of the net in their last 13 appearances, and in 19 of their last 20.
They also scored two or more goals in five of their last seven battles, and in five of their last seven at home as well. Against this opponent, they registered eight of the last ten wins at home, and nine of the last thirteen overall wins.
As such, expect them to take advantage of this home tie, and record three points on the board, to continue their assault on the pole position.
But do take into account the form of the visitors. They found the back of the net in nine of their last ten games, and in their last five away ties the team managed two or more goals comfortably, totaling 19 from these five clashes.
They may have struggled in previous h2h ties, but as of now, they are in shape to score some goals. Expect both teams to get on the scoresheet this Sunday.
