Today's Predictions for Valerenga vs Kristiansund

Two of the Eliteserien's bottom three sides go head-to-head this weekend as Valerenga play host to a Kristiansund side that are still searching for their first win of the campaign. Valerenga are the big favourites to win on Sunday but the hosts have been very poor at home of late and Kristiansund got the double over them last season.

Kristiansund Double Chance

We're going against the odds with our first tip and backing the visitors Kristiansund to avoid defeat. Kristiansund have won three and drawn three of their last six games against Valerenga, including home and away wins in the Eliteserien last season. Valerenga have lost their last three home games in all competitions and have only managed to win one of their last six outings.

Place the bet >>

Under 2.5 Goals

We're not expecting there to be many goals in this game as Valerenga have failed to score in four of their last six matches, including each of their last three home games, and under 2.5 goals have been scored in three of those six fixtures. Kristiansund have scored in each of their last three away games and we expect that good run of form in front of goal to continue but the visitors haven't scored more than one goal in any of their last six matches.

Kristiansund searching for first win of the season

Valerenga had the home advantage in their last game at home to Bodo/Glimt in the NM Cupen. The game turned out to be tight and tense throughout with the first half ending goalless. The second forty-five appeared to be going the same way until the final minute of the game when Saltnes fired Bodo/Glimt into the next round of the NM Cupen.

Valerenga Predicted Lineup: Sjøeng, Nation, Hedenstad, Zuta, Näsberg, Bjørdal, Strand, Layouni, Christensen, Sahraoui & Jatta

Last weekend, Kristiansund played host to the league leaders Lillestrom where a 19th-minute penalty from Bye put the home side in front. However, Lillestrom showed their true class in the second half, scoring three times without reply to turn the game in their favour and secure all 3pts with a scoreline of three goals to one.

Kristiansund Predicted Lineup: Mbaye, Askar, Aasbak, Hopmark, Coly, Nilsen, Williamsen, Kalludra, Diop, Jarl & Bye

Team News

Valerenga: Borchgrevink has a knee injury that could keep him from featuring this weekend.

Kristiansund: Moses Mawa looks set to miss the rest of the season with an Achilles tendon injury.
