Valerenga vs Bodo/Glimt
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Intility Arena (Oslo).
With a one-game advantage over the visitors, Bodo/Glint, the home side will be eying the clash between the two teams as a princely opportunity to go level on points with their counterparts on the table.
The hosts failed to grab a win in their last game against Sarpsborg on home soil and managed to hold the latter to a draw despite trailing early on. Although the squad enjoyed slightly lesser time on the ball, they still managed to get three shots on target out of their attempted eight.
The visitors are without a loss in their last three trips on the road, and their most recent away game against Viking finished in a seven-goal thriller with the final score reading 4-3 in favor of the away side.
Despite missing out on the lion’s share of possession, four different players rose to the situation for the away team and finally snatched the game out of their opponent’s hands at the end of the ninety minutes.
With sixteen points, the away side are currently third in the table while their foes, for Friday, are on fifth with thirteen.

Valerenga vs Bodo/Glimt Prediction
The visitors are likely to pick up the win and the three points when the squads clash against each other at the Infinity Arena on Friday.
The hosts have one win in their last three games on home soil and have managed to score just three goals while conceding four.
With two wins and a draw, the away side, on the other hand, are without a loss in their last three trips on the road. The squad, however, have not been impressive in fulfilling their defensive duties and have only managed to clinch the win by a narrow margin in all of those games.
The squads have been donning their scoring boots in their recent fixtures, and so we can certainly bet on both of them to find the back of the net at least once in the ninety minutes. The win, however, looks poised to swing in favor of the visitors.
