Tromso welcome UEFA Europa League contender Odd on Sunday afternoon within Round 16 of Eliteserien. Tromso were beaten by Haugesund with 2-0, while Odd drew Sarpsborg 08 amidst their European obligations.
The hosts are in unfavorable shape – they are winless in the last six fixtures in the domestic league. Tromso’s defense is the weakest link of the team since in the last four games, they allowed 10 goals.
Naturally, they sit next-to-last with only 14 points earned and almost twice as many goals admitted than scored. Ahead of the upcoming Round, they are in the worst form out of all teams with only one point from the last five outings.
Odd are coming back from a long trip since they played the second leg of first UEFA Europa League qualification round in Northern Ireland. Their opposition was Ballymena, the team they beat in the first leg with 0-3.
The visitors are also winless in the last six outings; in the aforementioned six matches, four clashes ended as a goalless draw!
Odd’s attack is horrible in Eliteserien visits – they score 0.5 goals per away game on average.
Tromso vs Odd: Head-to-head
The visitors beat Tromso earlier this season with the minimal result of 1-0. The hosts were convincing at Alfheim Stadion against Odds in the last 6 outings, but Odds managed to score almost each time.
Tromso vs Odd: Prediction
Odd’s dull attack and fatigue will be a huge factor in this match. Tromso are in the position where even a draw would suit them, so they will be happy with another goalless tie. Odd might even field the youngsters or the players with less play time who weren’t featured in Northern Ireland. It’s highly likely that both sides will extend their respective winless runs.
