Tromso vs Odd
Date: Sunday, 1 July 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Alfheim Stadion, Tromso.
Tromso continued to enjoy a successful campaign under the Finnish manager Simo Valakari. Gutan climbed up to the fifth place in the Eliteserien standings after winning four of last five league ties.
They have just been thriving in the final third recently bagging as many as eight goals in three games across competitions. Can they keep such form going against the out-of-form Odd side on Sunday?
Valakari managed to raise the spirits after a tough NM Cupen elimination to the likes of Valerenga in spite of the fact his team produced three goals there. Enga were more successful in the penalty shootout.
Nevertheless, the team responded very well beating the likes of Sarpsborg 2-3 on the road last weekend.
Tromso vs Odd: Head-to-head
Odd have a better overall head to head record with 15 wins, 9 draws and 9 defeats in 33 affairs against Tromso.
However, Gutan were more successful in the history of matches at Alfheim Stadion where they won8 and lost 5 of 17 ties with Oddrane.
Tromso won three and drew two of last five home meetings with Odd.
Tromso vs Odd: Prediction
Odd head into this in a disastrous form having lost four and drawn one of last five matches in all competitions.
Dag Fagermo’s men are struggling fir the firepower up front as they failed to find the back of the net in last two league ties with Lillestrom and Brann. Odd lost three and drew one of last four games on the road as well.
We thus have to find the value in backing Tromso to maintain the fine spell of form and pick up the third consecutive home victory here at the odds of 2.00.
They also won three and drew two of last five home matches against Odd in recent history. The hosts to net two or more goals in the match is another bet worth backing at the odds of 1.83 given they notched three goals against Valerenga and Sarpsborg apiece in last two games.
