Stabaek vs Odd
Date: Monday, 21 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Nadderud Stadion, Bekkestua.
Stabaek lost three on the bounce in Eliteserien and dropped down to 14th place as a result. Can De Blaa bounce back on Monday afternoon when they host Odd in the Matchday No 11? It will be anything but an easy task for Toni Ordinas and his men given they’ll be up against an in-form outfit which comes into this off the back of netting five goals in a demolishing victory over the Sandefjord on Wednesday.
Dag Fagermo’s men will have a nice opportunity to get more points on board here knowing Stabaek did not score a single goal in last four matches in all competitions. The negative thread began in early-May with the 1-0 loss away at Kristiansund and it also saw an embarrassing 2-0 loss to lower-division Mjondalen in NM Cupen.
Stabaek vs Odd: Head-to-head
Stabaek won three official meetings with Odd in a row without conceding a single goal in the process (8-0 goal difference along the way).
Odd got some sort of revenge in the pre-season friendly played in February this year when they took a demolishing 4-0 victory.
Odd were the more successful side in the history of matches at Nadderud Stadion (8 wins and 5 losses in 16 games there).
Stabaek vs Odd: Prediction
The visitors don’t share Stabaek’s problems with the lack of the efficiency in the final third. Fagermo has a strong firepower on display up front with the likes of Martin Broberg and Elbasan Rashani who have equally shared the eight-goal tally so far in the season. We thus have to find the value in backing Odd not to lose at the odds of 1.61.
Braver tipsters can try with the clear away win at the 2.90 odds given that the visitors will head into the game as massive form favourites following their impressive 5-0 victory over Sandefjord on Wednesday.
