Sandefjord vs Bodo/Glimt
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 16 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Komplett Arena.
This is actually a mismatch comparing both their current positions in the table. The home team has lost more than half of their league games already, which is why they are 9th right now. But being a newbie to Eliteserien it was expected. When compared to their compatriots who gained promotion this season, they have done much better. But this upcoming game will be the toughest in their season.
The toppers are aiming to get back to winning ways after the away draw with Valerenga. There is no other team that is unbeaten after 13 rounds. From those games, Glimt has 11 wins and two draws which clearly shows their domination this year. A win in this upcoming tie would improve their lead with Molde to seven points.
Sandefjord vs Bodo/Glimt: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Glimt has two wins and a defeat in five previous meetings with this opposition.
- Both teams have netted goals in six of their last seven head to head games.
- Four of those games also had more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
Sandefjord vs Bodo/Glimt: Prediction
Even though the toppers are on an unbeaten streak, they have been leaking goals in recent match days. Especially in the last two matches on the road, they lost points because of silly mistakes at the back. The home has already proved their attacking intent in the previous games and is more than capable of scoring past Glimt. But one goal may not be enough to get all three points even though they are playing at home.
There is no way an unbeaten team is going to lose to these opponents who have more defeats than wins. Also, they have conceded more than 20 goals this year which is like an invitation to the top scorers to improve their scoring stats. So I am backing the home side to win and both teams to get in the score sheet.
