Brann Preview – Can Brann find what would just be their second win of the season?

Now 10 games into the new season and Brann are rock bottom of the table. They’ve taken just four points with one draw and win so far. The solitary victory came at home to Stromsgodset at the end of May, winning 3-0 at home. They’ve been unable to build on that since, however, managing a draw against Sarpsborg before losing to Odd and Haugesund.

Kare Ingebrigsten (who has won three league titles in his time with Rosenborg) has been in charge of Brann for less than a year but he is well aware of the challenges which he and his players face at the opposite end of the table.


Our betting prediction
Under 2.5 goals
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 23 June)

No team has lost more games or conceded more goals than Brann and the latter of those is where they need to seriously improve if they are to start climbing the table. They are conceding more than two goals a game on average and managed just two clean sheets.

Scoring goals is also an issue for them averaging less than a goal a game and failing to score in half their league games so far. Daouda Bamba is the only play to score more than one goal and he’s only on two. He was the club’s top scorer reaching double figures last season as Brann finished in 10th spot. That looks a long way off just now


Lillestrom Preview – Will Lillestrom extend their winning run to four games and continue climbing the table?

It was something of a slow start for Lillestrom but they are on a roll at the moment and looking for a fourth straight win in the league and a fifth win in their last six games. It’s been a dramatic turnaround for Geir Bakke’s men who lost their first two games 3-1 in what would have been a reality check returning to the top-flight after a season away.

Bakke’s men are now comfortably in mid-table and will be looking above them rather than below such is their good form and confidence at the moment. A top three finish might be beyond them but they’re only four points behind third place Valerenga and have played three games fewer than that rival.

Lillestrom have achieved their results through being a very efficient team. They’ve scored and conceded nine goals to this point and having conceded six goals in their first two matches shows they have made the necessary adjustments to defend better at this level.

Thomas Olsen is their most threatening attacking player and has scored more than half his team’s league goals with five to his name. Olsen’s best return in a season is 12 goals and you fancy he can better that in this campaign.
