Start vs Valerenga
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 17 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Sparebanken Sør Arena (Kristianstad)

The home team is going from bad to worse this season. Currently, they are on a two-match losing streak which takes their losing tally to seven games. From 14 matches they have only one win which was against Mjondalen who is also in the relegation zone. They will need a miracle to win this upcoming tie.

Valerenga is fourth in the table after 13 matches. They have six wins and two defeats in those games and the majority of their matches have been drawn. With this current form, they are the favorites against the hosts who are new to the top tier.

Start vs Valerenga: Prediction

The away team has lost two matches this season, both of them coming away from home. But those were against teams of the likes of Molde and Odds. At the same time, the home team is unbeaten in their four previous games at this ground which includes three draws and a win. But currently, they have lost to two top teams- Molde and Kristiansund in back to back games. Also, the head to head stats is favoring the visitors. So I think the Bohemians will improve their unbeaten streak on Monday.

In terms of goals, there was never a shortage when these two met on the field. Both of them scored in all three previous meetings overall. All those three games had a final score with more than 2.5 goals too. So I am backing the away team to win and a score of over 2.5 goals.
