Tip Reasoning

Both Lillestrom and Odd currently find themselves in the bottom half of the division following on from more successful seasons last time around. Odd finished their league campaign in a creditable 6th place while Lillestrom ended in the bottom half but qualified for Europe, thanks to an impressive Norwegian Cup success.

They certainly seem like a team that has more of a taste for a one-off match. They’ve flattered to deceive again largely this term in the league but put in their best performance of the campaign last time out in the cup. They took on Eliteserien leaders Brann who have been virtually unstoppable this term in the league. However Lillestrom tore into them, scoring four Second Half goals to win 4-1 and keep their hopes of successfully defending their cup crown alive.

The frustration and challenge for them is replicating that form in the league, where they average just 0.92 points per game. Certainly the cup win should give them confidence but Odd were also pretty good in the cup last time out, drawing 2-2 away to Rosenborg but they still exited the competition on penalties.

The performance against strong opponents should give them some confidence though and they ought to be capable of making a real game of this. They do have an 80% defeat ratio on their travels in the league this term so you couldn’t strongly fancy them here but Lillestrom haven’t been consistent enough to suggest it will be an easy ride for the hosts.

Going for Both Teams to Score could be the best approach to take. 58% of Lillestrom games this term in the Eliteserien have produced goals at each end. 6 of their last 9 games in all competitions have done likewise and they will certainly have a renewed sense of belief, having put four past Brann.

Odd have scored in all of their last 11 matches in all competitions though so you have to fancy the visitors to net at some point in this one. 58% of their league games this term have seen both teams score and the same goes for 5 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.

In terms of the outcome, home advantage could just sway this in favour of Lillestrom. Odd’s overall form has taken a real turn for the worse with 3 defeats in their last 4 league matches and backing a 2-1 Home Win could be the smart bet in the Correct Score market.
