Valerenga vs Tromso
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 19 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Ulleval Stadion (Oslo).
The closing match of the Sunday’s action in Norwegian Eliteserien is going to be contested between Valerenga and Tromso.
The hosts entered a bad streak and they have been searching for a win for the last six rounds. They slipped down to the middle of the table and they are currently ten points below the Europa League spot.
Although Ronny Deila’s side has been pretty productive so far, their level of defendin dropped severely which caused the run of negative results.
Valerenga have suffered just one home defeat this season, however, they’ve been involved in a lot of draws when playing in front of their fans. Home side needs to find the winning formula if they want to remain in the top half of the table.
Tromso haven’t been playing much better lately as they suffered three defeats in a row. They are two points ahead of their opponents but Europa League spot is now eight points away from the visitors.
Runar Espejord and the lads are doing a very good job in front of the oppositions’ goal, but they would need to tighten up the defence.
The visitors are not performing very well at away pitches as they managed to get back home with a win just twice from nine outings and avoid the defeat in one more occasion.
Valerenga vs Tromso: Head-to-head
Valerenga had a great streak of five straight wins over Tromso from 2015 to 2017, however they failed to celebrate in the last four encounters.
During that period, Tromso managed to beat their opponents twice. Their head to head clashes are usually a joy to watch in terms of goals scored.
Valerenga vs Tromso: Prediction
This one is very hard to predict as both sides are not enjoying a good form and it wouldn’t be surprising if they split the points at the end of the match. Tromso might be able to stay undefeated in this one and continue their unbeatable streak against Valerenga.
These two sides have some troubles in defending their net, while their attacking work is pretty good. As their head to head clashes are fairly efficient, it is very likely that in this one we should be able to see goals in both nets.
