Stromsgodset vs Bodo/Glimt
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion, Drammen.
Ştromsgodset almost made the top-four in the Eliteserien standings last season, but they seem to have huge troubles matching such success in the new campaign.
Sunday’s home side went on the summer break sitting at the 11th place with just 17 points from 16 rounds which is way below standards imposed by a strong previous term run.
Can the caretaker manager Bjorn Ingebretsen raise the spirits and begin a winning thread when Stromsgodset host league newcomers Bodo/Glimt after the summer interval on Sunday afternoon at Marienlyst Stadion?
The visitors sit just one point below in the league ladder and they should come into this higher on confidence after a streak of five consecutive games without a defeat in all competitions.
Stromsgodset vs Bodo/Glimt: Head-to-head
Bodo are the ones who lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of 27th encounter with Stromsgodset.
The two sides shared spoils in a four-goal thriller when they met in this term of Eliteserien back in late-May at Aspmyra Stadion.
Three or more goals were seen in six of last seven head to head games between these two outfits.
Stromsgodset bagged two or more goals in all of last nine meetings with Superlaget.
Stromsgodset vs Bodo/Glimt: Prediction
Bodo began the season in a solid fashion. But their defensive line became much more vulnerable as time passed. The visitors conceded two goals in three of last four matches in all competitions which will surely be the music to the ears of Stromsgodset’s strikers.
The hosts have a true predator in the final third in the likes of Marcus Pedersen who is currently league’s top scorer with 11 goals to his name so far in the season.
The hosts have a very interesting attacking line featuring Mostafa Abdellaoue as well. Nevertheless, the man who notched 16 goals in the previous season of Eliteserien for Aalesund is yet to find the back of the net in the new shirt after making 11 appearances for Stromsgodset this term.
To sum it all up, goals should be guaranteed here as we expect the continuation of the high-scoring trend in H2H games between these two sides.
All of four games Superlaget played saw goals at both ends and we’ll shoot for the BTTS pick at the 1.66 odds.
Also, the hosts notched two or more goals in each of last nine encounters against Bodo and you can back the continuation of such thread at the 1.61 odds.
