Tip Reasoning

  • Lillestrom are unbeaten in eight Norwegian Eliteserien games this season, winning six.
  • Geir Bakke’s hosts have won each of their four games this term, not conceding a single goal.
  • Valerenga are winless in their last three games, losing two.

Lillestrom look to maintain strong start

Geir Bakke’s Lillestrom have made a superb start to the Norwegian season, winning six of their first eight games and going unbeaten to share top spot with Viking. The Canaries are looking to improve upon a fourth-placed finish last term, and a meeting with rivals Valerenga represents an opportunity for Bakke’s side to maintain their strong form, particularly given their excellent home record.

Indeed, Lillestrom have won all four of their home league games this season, failing to concede a single goal in those contests. Furthermore, two of those beaten opponents, Aalesund and Sarpsborg 08, are in the top seven after decent starts. Including the tail end of last term, Lillestrom are now unbeaten in nine home games, winning seven and conceding just one goal.

Opponents Valerenga, meanwhile, are winless in three games after falling to a 3-2 loss at Stromgodset last time out, and have only won once on the road this term – at early strugglers Sandefjord. Valerenga have not won any of their last five meetings with their rivals, and their early-season form – three wins from eight games, all against teams currently in the bottom four – suggests they might struggle to change that on Wednesday.

Hosts worth backing to continue fine form

Given Lillestrom’s outstanding start to the season and their faultless home record, backing the hosts for a win over their struggling rivals is the only play that makes sense ahead of Wednesday’s clash.

Taking into account the hosts’ record of just one goal conceded in their last nine home league matches, a 2-0 victory for the league leaders looks a strong correct score prediction.
