MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
In Stabaek’s last match they battled to a 0-0 result in Kristiansand against Start. That result kept up their good recent form and a run that has seen them lose just twice in ten league games. Stabaek occupy 5th place in the table on 16 points and it seems to be a realistic target to aim for come the end of the season too. The Baerum club are a young and energetic side and they will only improve further beyond this solid start – if they can keep hold of their most talented players.
A 3-1 home victory over last year’s champions Molde ensured Bodo Glimt kept up their unbeaten record this season. Goals from regular scorers Patrick Berg, Kasper Junker and Jens Hauge ensured all three points for the club from the Arctic Circle. They have now won a staggering ten league games from ten. As a result, they head the table on 30 points, five clear of second-best Molde. If Bodo can keep this kind of form up they will undoubtably break many Eliteserien records.
I will predict another win for Bodo Glimt in this match, it’s hard to bet against them at the moment regardless of who they come up against.
HEAD TO HEAD
Stabaek won this fixture against Bodo Glimt 2-0 last season; however, the sides shared the points in a 3-3 draw in Bodo few months later.
