Valerenga Prediction – Can Valerenga stay in touch with top three?

Valerenga occupy 5th place in the Norwegian top flight ahead of this important clash with high-flying Bodo/Glimt at their Intility Arena.

Overall results have been a mixed bag in recent times as Valerenga have recorded wins over Stromsgodset and Haugesund as well as two defeats.

Losses to Lillestrom and Rosenborg in recent matches have prevented Valerenga from lifting themselves closer to the top three clubs.

However, all three points in this clash against Bodo/Glimt could see them move up into 4th place and just a point adrift of 3rd placed Odd.

The hosts possess a fairly solid looking record on home turf at their Intility Arena with a record that stands at 4-1-1 10/5.

Their victories to date include wins over Mjondalen 2-0, Tromso 4-1, Odd 1-0 and a 2-0 win over Stromsgodset, as well as a 1-1 draw with Sarpsborg.

Midfielders Shala and Donnum (3 goals apiece) along with forwards Ejuke (5 goals), Finne (4 goals) and Vihjalmsson (3 goals) are the host’s main goal threats.

Bodo/Glimt Prediction – Can Bodo/Glimt stay close to Molde?

2nd placed Bodo/Glimt are just three points adrift of Eliteserien league leaders, Malmo, as Friday night’s Norwegian top flight action continues.

Bodo/Glimt hold a comfortable 4-point cushion over 4th placed Brann, so the hosts look fairly well placed to hold onto one of the Europa League qualifier spots.

A recent 2-1 loss at home to Brann was perhaps the wake-up call that Bodo/Glimt needed though as it sparked a recent revival.

Following that disappointing loss, Bodo/Glimt registered a 3-match winning streak which included wins against Stromsgodset, Viking and Odd.

During this impressive turnaround sequence of results, Bodo/Glimt have scored a total of 9 goals from these last 3 wins.

The visitors therefore also carry a serious goal threat and having won 4 of their last 5 matches overall, confidence will also be high.

Bodo/Glimt have also suffered just 1 defeat on their travels from their last 8 matches overall on their travels, so they’ve been hard to beat on the road.


Key-Facts – Valerenga v Bodo/Glimt

  • Valerenga have suffered just 1 defeat at home so far this season
  • Bodo/Glimt have won their last 3 matches on the trot in the Eliteserien
  • Bodo/Glimt have scored a total of 9 goals from these last 3 wins


Betting Tips Verdict

Both Valerenga and Bodo/Glimt have produced solid results of late at home and away respectively, so both teams look set to score here.
