Player to watch – Albert Gronbaek

Albert Gronbaek is enjoying a great start to the 2024 Eliteserien season.

The former AFG man has netted six times in nine starts so far this season and is already getting close to toppling his goals tally from the previous campaign which stands at nine.

Bodo/Glimt's Norwegian midfielder top scores this season

We're backing Gronbaek to put in another excellent performance for the league leaders on Friday when they take on KFUM for the first time in their history. If you want to back anyone to score in this game it would have to be Gronbaek as the 22-year-old is in fantastic form right now with four goals in his last three outings.
