Valerenga Prediction- Can Valerenga move level with top three?

Valerenga currently occupy 7th place on the Eliteserien league ladder but despite two recent back-to-back defeats, they’re still just 3 points adrift of 3rd placed Bodo/Glimt.

Recent losses to Lillestrom 3-0 at home and a 3-0 defeat away from home at Rosenborg have slowed down Valerenga’s progress up the league table.

Nevertheless, the hosts know that all three points in Sunday afternoon’s clash with lowly Sarpsborg could lift them level on points with Bodo/Glimt.

Before the recent two losses, Valerenga had put together a promising 6-match unbeaten run in the Eliteserien which included four wins and two draws.

Wins over Tromso, Odd, Ranheim and Stromsgodset should provide Valerenga with enough confidence to grab the spoils at their Intility Arena this afternoon.

The hosts have also made a good start to their Norwegian top flight campaign on home turf as they possess a solid looking record of 4-0-1 9/4.

3 clean sheets within their first 5 home matches along with goal threats from midfielder Shala (3 goals) and forwards Vijahlmsson (3 goals) and Ejuke (4 goals) should ensure a positive result for the hosts here.

Sarpsborg Prediction – Can Sarpsborg pull away from relegation zone?

Sarpsborg ended a miserable run of 4 defeats on the trot and a sequence of 6 league matches without a win when they recorded a much needed 2-0 home win over Odd last time out.

That win lifted Sarpsborg up into 12th place on the Norwegian top flight ladder but the fact remains that the visitors have gained just 2 wins to date this season.

Both of these victories were achieved on home turf at their Sarpsborg Stadion with wins over Lillestrom and Odd, but they’re still yet to win away from home this term.

An away record of 0-2-2 3/5 includes points picked up on the road at 8th placed Haugesund and 3rd placed Bodo/Glimt in worthy 1-1 draws.

However, they’ve since slumped to back-to-back defeats away at Rosenborg 1-0 and Brann 2-1 and a tough task lies ahead of them at Valerenga this Sunday afternoon.

Success on the road in the Eliteserien has been sporadic as the visitors have picked up just 3 wins from their last 15 matches on their travels.


Key-Facts – Valerenga v Sarpsborg
