Valerenga vs Stromsgodset
Date: Thursday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Intility Arena (Oslo).
Valerenga look to have caught the anted shape after a somewhat slower start to the new season. They were flying high in the last couple of weeks and will come into Thursday’s clash against Stromsgodset in the highest of spirits after a run of three wins and one draw in last four outings across competitions. The Bohemians were particularly impressive on Sunday when they demolished Ranheim 1-5 on the road.
Ronny Deila has a very talented group of attackers in his ranks. Chidera Ejuke took his league tally to four with a late brave at Rahneim at the weekend and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick on Thursday.
Stromsgodset share the penultimate position with Rosenborg as they only claimed six points from eight rounds so far. The visitors lost three and drew two of last five matches and they’ll go into this in completely opposite spirits compared to their counterparts.
Valerenga vs Stromsgodset: Head-to-head
Interestingly, Stromsgodset have always been unpleasant opposition to the Bohemians.
Godset won five and drew two of last seven official head to head encounters with Enga.
Just one of last seven head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Valerenga’s previous win over Godset came back in April 2015 (the visitors are unbeaten in last ten matches).
Valerenga vs Stromsgodset: Prediction
We believe the time has come for Valerenga to finally bring such unpleasant run in H2H games with Godset to an end. Deila’s men are impeccable on the home patch with a record of three wins in three matches so far in the season. They only conceded one goal in three home outings in this term of Eliteserien.
Stromsgodset conceded two or more goals in three of past five league fixtures. They are up against the red-hot attacking line of Valerenga’s and we have to back the Bohemians to notch at least two goals on Thursday night at the odds of 1.66.
