Match Time: 6/28/2020 23:59 Sunday (GMT+8)
Bodo Glimt’s Marcus Andersen is out for some time with a broken arm while Ole Sveen is again marked as doubt.
Sarpsborg have a clean bill of health and no suspensions ahead of this game.
Doubtful: Ole Sveen (leg)
Injured/unavailable: Marcus Andersen (broken arm)
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Bodo Glimt played away against Rosenborg in their last league game, a match that they won 3-2. Bodo Glimt’s only home game this season was a really impressive result, a 6-1 demolition of Haugesund. The club from the Arctic Circle also had a great home record in 2019, were they lost just once and scored 39 times in total – the second highest home goal tally in the league behind Molde.
Sarpsborg had a home game against Stromsgodset in their last outing, it was a game they lost 3-2. Sarpsborg failed to score in their only away game of the season so far, a 1-0 defeat against Mjondalen. And it seems unlikely that they can take anything for this game in Bodo, especially if you consider the lightning start to the season the hosts have made.
Bodo Glimt have been the most impressive starters to Eliteserien 2020 and they show no signs of slowing down either, so I will predict a home win in this match.
SECOND PREDICTION: FIRST TEAM TO SCORE – BODO GLIMT
Bodo Glimt scored early in this match last season and for that reason and because they have started the season well, I will predict they will find the back of the net first in this fixture.
HEAD TO HEAD
Sarpsborg and Bodo Glimt draw both their league games last season 1-1, but the latter are unbeaten in their last three home games with today’s opponent.
