Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Marienlyst Stadion will host Sunday’s Eliteserien game between Stromsgodset and Valerenga, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 23. Stromsgodset are eager to secure yet another Eliteserien survival, while Valerenga are eyeing a place in European competitions. Seeing that Henrik Pedersen’s troops are on an eight-game winless run in the national championship, home win should not be considered.
Keep in mind, though, that all Gunnarson, Ipalibo, and Mickelson return from suspension for the hosts, while Krasniqi (coronavirus) is rated doubtful. The Pride of Oslo are three points behind the Europa League berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for them. Given Stromsgodset’s anything but good form, we believe that punters can find value in backing the visitors. Valerenga boss Dag-Eliev Fagermo is likely to field the best possible side against the Godset.
