Valerenga vs Lillestrom
Date: Saturday, 25 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Intility Arena (Oslo).
Valerenga and Lillestrom will raise curtain on Matchday No 10 on Saturday afternoon. It will be the clash between two teams with completely opposite form at Intility Arena.
The hosts are flying high coming into the tie with a thread of four wins and a draw in last five games in all competitions.
They climbed up to third place in the league ladder following a pair of impressive wins over Ranheim (1-5) and Stromsgodset (2-0).
Nigerian forward Chidera Ejuke has been one of the main catalysts for such spell of form.
He notched three goals in last three league ties and he will no doubts be the main threat to Lillestrom’s goal this weekend.
We have to mention Valerenga’s impressive home showings so far in the season. The Bohemians really got wind in their sails in league games at Intility Arena where they keep a perfect record of four wins in four outings (9-1 goal difference) so far.
Valerenga vs Lillestrom: Head-to-head
Enga earned a domestic double over Lillestrom thanks to two separate 1-0 wins in the previous term of Eliteserien.
Teams tested each other in a pre-season friendly which ended in a 4-4 draw in March this year.
Overall, Valerenga lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into 52nd meeting with Fugla.
Valerenga vs Lillestrom: Prediction
Unlike their counterparts, Lillestrom have been misfiring lately in Eliteserien. They go into this winless in last four league ties. Fugla clinched two points in the process and they shipped five goals in last two fixtures.
Jorgen Lennartsson’s men suffered a tough 0-3 loss at home to Odd last weekend.
We can thus hardly imagine them bouncing back against the red-hot Valerenga side and the home win has to be considered a banker bet based on everything written above.
We’d not be surprised to see a comprehensive victory for the hosts who have really been in great touch lately, particularly in front of the home crowd in Oslo.
