Brann will be hoping to continue their fine start to the season when they make the trip to Lillestrom on Sunday.

The visitors sit second in the table behind Bodo/Glimt and could move into first place with a win at Lillestrom. The hosts have made a slow start to the campaign and won't be looking forward to facing Brann this weekend as they haven't won this fixture since 2018.

Player to watch – Aune Heggebo

Aune Heggebo has played the role of ‘super sub' in the early stages of the new season but the young Brann forward started and scored against Rosenborg last time out and now looks set for a run in the starting lineup.

With four goals in his opening six appearances, Heggebo looks like he is finally going to make his breakthrough at Brann after a few seasons of struggle.

Heggebo has started the season in good form

We're backing the Brann forward to score against Lillestrom this weekend, helping to guide the visitors to another three points.
