Tromso vs Brann
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 1 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Alfheim Stadion (Tromso).
Brann have been the only side to cope with Rosenborg at the top of the Eliteserien table, travelling to Tromso for their Matchday 24 clash sitting four points behind the table-toppers and hoping to close the gap as soon as Monday.
Bergens Stolthet have had a good September too and we’ve seen them beat Ranheim and Haugesund in first two outings, building on the success with a 1-1 home draw against Sandefjord – which does come off as somewhat of a disappointment for Lars Arne Nilsen’s men despite netting an equalizer in a thriller finish in front of the home crowd.
Tromso will look to capitalize on such a slip-up and shock the rivals at Alfheim Stadion too, but they have been far from their best too. While they’ll be very motivated on the day, their struggles to score goals on the regular seem more worrying and have proven costly lately, as they come into the match with a goalless draw against Stabaek and a 1-0 loss at struggling Lillestrom seen in their last two outings.
Tromso vs Brann: Head-to-head
- Brann have bagged a convincing 3-0 win over the rivals in their last clash in May 2018.
- Tromso have proven themselves a tough side to beat at Alfheim Stadion, though, with four wins and two draws in six matchups here.
- We have seen a total of seven goals in the sides’ last two head-to-head games.
Tromso vs Brann: Prediction
We do believe Brann have what it takes to show off on the day and finally end the unwanted streak at this ground, though, and we’ll go for an Away win at 2.45. We have seen them very solid and with high stakes of catching up with the table-toppers, we do see them getting all three points at Alfheim Stadion this time around.
They could have to impress up front to make it happen and we’ll thus also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.80, which would be the third such contest between the sides in a row and looks a solid bet to get behind too. Brann have been scoring goals and we do see them outgunning the unpredictable rivals now.
