Tromso vs Valerenga
Norwegian Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 21 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Alfheim Stadion, Tromso.

Valerenga will be hoping to maintain the splendid run of form on Monday against fellow mid-table rivals Tromso. There are just four points separating the two sides ahead of an important 11th round tie at Alfheim Stadion.

Ronny Deila’s troop managed to improve the form after somewhat of a slower start to the new campaign. They will come into this undefeated in last nine games in all competitions and off the back of consecutive clean sheet wins over Sandefjord and Stabaek. The attacking line did just enough to earn Enga wins bagging a goal in each of the mentioned victories.

The man who provided the finishing touch was Sam Johnson who made the difference in both of these ties. The Liberian striker took his league tally to seven goals and he is now the second top scorer in the entire competition.

Tromso vs Valerenga: Head-to-head

  • Tromso destroyed Valerenga 0-3 when the two sides met each other in the pre-season friendly in February.
  • Valerenga were much more successful in official matches against Tromso, though.
  • Enga win seven and drew two of last nine official head to head contests with Tromso.
  • Both teams scored just once in last six head to head games.

Tromso vs Valerenga: Prediction

Both sides kept their net untouched in mid-week round continuing their generally solid defensive displays in this term. We feel it will be very hard to make the difference between these two on Monday and the value has to be with the draw at the odds of 3.50.

Since only one of last five head to head matches brought the BTTS option, backing the low-scoring contest just looks to be the way to go here. We’ll take the Under 2.5 goals full-time bet at the odds of 2.10 all day long under these circumstances. Punters who’d like to try with the big longshot can chase Valerenga to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 4.33.
