Stabaek vs Odds Ballklubb Prediction & Match Preview

Stabaek vs Odds Ballklubb
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Nadderud Stadion (Bekkestua)

The Blue ones are currently eighth in the table with four wins and three defeats from 12 games. They will most likely finish in the mid-table like last time around if they draw the majority of their games. In the latest league action, they lost to Haugesund which makes it three matches without a win. This upcoming fixture would be one of the toughest of their season.

Oddrane is third right now with 12 points between them and toppers Bodo/Glimt.  They have to win some of their games against the big guns to improve their position at present. But it is easier said than done against teams like Molde. They are also facing pressure from Vaalerenga for the Europa League qualifying spot.

  • Three of those five games produced a final score with more than 2.5 goals.
  • Both sides have two wins in the last five head to head matches here.
  • The common score in three of those matches was 2-1.
  • The home team is winless in three recent games on this ground.

Stabaek vs Odds Ballklubb: Prediction

With a three-match winning run going on Odds is on a whole another level compared to the hosts. The Blue ones are capable of stealing points from them somehow. We saw them at their best against the toppers Bodo/Glimt. So the visitors must be careful not to concede early in the game. To be on the safe side I am going with a Double Chance for a draw or the visitors to win.

Despite being in the top three, Odds have conceded to the far inferior teams in recent weeks. We saw it in away games against teams like Viking and Stromsgodset. On the other hand, the hosts have scored twice against one of the strongest defenses in the competition. So I am backing both sides to get goals on Sunday.
