Ranheim vs Brann: Preview and Predictions

Aron Wright - April 23, 2018

Ranheim Fotball vs SK Brann
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Wednesday, 25th April 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: EXTRA Arena (Trondheim).

A high number of goals is expected in the top of the table clash in Norwegian Eliteserien between Ranheim and SK Brann.

Ranheim are in their debut season in Norway’s top flight, but do they look like one? Four games into the campaign and there has been no signs of nerves as they bagged some huge results against established clubs in the division.

The two home games in the period saw comfortable 4-1 and 4-2 victories against Stabaek and Haugesund. While away wins at Lillestrom and Sandefjord made it 4 wins out of 5 matches. They did lost one at Tromso by a 4-0 margin, so they are not invincible, but certainly are a fearless side.

On the other hand, Brann seem to have picked up from where they left off last season. They are unbeaten with 4 wins and 1 draw coming from the 5 games so far.

The strong results early in the season help them to sit at the top of the table, level on points with defending champions Molde with 1 game in hand. Meantime, their midweek hosts Ranheim are third on the log with 1 point separating the teams.

Brann’s two away games so far this season saw a 2-1 win at Sarpsborg and 1-1 draw at Stromsgodset. It is too early to judge them as they have been inconsistent on the road in previous seasons.

Ranheim vs Brann: Head-to-head

It will be the first Eliteserien meeting between Ranheim and Brann.

Also, they had met just three times so far and Brann are unbeaten in those games with 2 wins and 1 draw. The draw happened in their lone meeting at Ranheim’s home turf in 2015.

Ranheim vs Brann: Predictions

I see ‘Goals’ and a lot of them when these two teams meet on Wednesday. Ranheim scored 4 goals each in their two home games and netted in 4 of their 5 league games so far this season. While, Brann scored in every game this season and conceded in both their away games in the period. So, both teams to score has to be a banker bet.

On the basis of strong home form, it is also a good punt to back Ranheim not to lose here. So, draw no bet and double chance could be bagged at sizable odds.

Ranheim vs Brann: Bet Tips

  • Both teams to Score @ 1.80 with 10Bet
  • Double Chance – Ranheim or Draw @ 1.85.
