Stabaek vs Brann: Head-to-head
Stabaek will remember the last meeting with Brann for a long time.

However, at Nadderud Stadion, the visitors haven’t had much success – only one victory in the last ten years.
Stabaek vs Brann: Prediction
We will probably witness a cautious approach from Brann – their signature style since most of their away games ended with 2 or less goals seen.
Stabaek are inferior in this matchup, both form-wise and quality-wise, but they are certainly one of the teams capable of crushing Brann’s title hopes.
A minimal victory or a 1-1 draw is likely outcome here.
