Odd vs Stabaek
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Skagerak Arena (Skien).
The hosts failed to grab a win in their clash against table topper Molde last week with the scores finishing 2-2 at the end of the ninety minutes. The squad trailed by two goals at the break but staged a remarkable comeback with Nordkvelle and Borven finding the back of the net after the restart.
Despite enjoying slightly better possession on the ball and making eight attempts at goal, only two of those shots were able to make the goalkeeper work.
Their counterparts on Wednesday, on the other hand, will be coming into the clash on the back of a 2-0 win in their previous fixture on the road against Stromsgodset. The squad almost went on the back foot early on with their opponents being awarded a penalty that Pellegrino failed to convert.
However, they soon took control of the game with Brynhildsen breaking the deadlock in the first half and Kassi sealing the win with a second after the restart. The squad gave away the major share of possession but did just enough with their attempts at goal to award them with the win at the end of the final whistle.
With two games in hand, the hosts who are currently third with twenty-six points will be eying the clash this week as the perfect opportunity to inch closer to the top of the table.
The visitors are thirteenth in the table with fourteen points, and although they do have three games in hand, nothing but the win is likely to be their top priority either.

Odd vs Stabaek Prediction
Although the recent head to head ties between the two sides says otherwise, the fixture on Wednesday is more than likely to see the hosts come out on top at the Skagerak Arena.
The hosts have not succumbed to a loss in their last five games on home soil and have recorded two clean sheets in the process as well. They have also scored nine goals to their name while conceding just four.
The visitors have not been enjoying a similar streak on the road in the league and have just two wins to boast of in their last five games. However, the team have been showing signs of resurgence in their last two fixtures, which does them give them a glimmer of hope.
Both teams are likely to score in the clash, with the win certain to swing in favor of the hosts at the end of the final whistle.
