Topic: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 25-26-27-28/5

Here are a pick for the Norwegian Tippeligaen for the match today. Will post on the matches tomorrow, Sunday and Monday, later when there is more info.

Friday 25.05 19:00 CET:

Start - Stromsgodset

Start lost 1-4 away against Rosenborg on May 16th. But before that match they had 2-4-0. Haland and Stromstad are unsure for this match, while Nielsen will miss this one.
Godset lost 0-4 at home against AaFK in their last match. Managed a lucky 2-1 win over Rosenborg in their last away match. Goalkeeper Johnsen will miss this match, but Finstad, Deila and Leonhardsen will also miss it. Andersson will probably be out for the rest of this season.

Head2Head:
Oct 31, 04 Adeccoligaen: Start 2 - 1 Stromsgodset IF 
Jul 4, 04 Adeccoligaen: Stromsgodset IF 3 - 0 Start
Aug 10, 03 Adeccoligaen: Start 5 - 1 Stromsgodset IF
May 21, 03 Adeccoligaen: Stromsgodset IF 1 - 1 Start

The hosts should win this match. They want to impress the how crowd at the Sor Arena.

Start to win. It would also be possible to put in a H/H bet in this one, but thats not as sure as Start winning.

Re: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 25-26-27-28/5

what do you think about Over 2.5 goals in that match then?

Re: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 25-26-27-28/5

I'm happy I put in a bet on over 2.5 goals on this one wink ended with 2-3 win to Stromsgodset

Re: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 25-26-27-28/5

Start 2 - 3 Stromsgodset
0-1 - 10'Kovacs
0-2 - 12'Kovacs
1-2 - 32' Valencia   
2-2 - 66' Borufsen
2-3 - 90' Kovacs

Realy unlucky for Start this result. After coming back from two bad goals, they should have won the match easily, but instead Kovacs managed to score an late goal after some bad defending and goalkeeping. And Start coach Bjorneby (former Liverpool defender) said after the match, that they should have won it 5-0. That say's it all.

litlio: Good that you won on that pick at least. Sorry for not getting back to you on your question, before the match started. Did you get good odds on your pick, or?

Fredrikstad - Valerenga

Fredrikstad impressed in the 2-2 draw against Brann at Brann Stadion on May 16th, but came from two bad matches before that. They were good in their first two home matches this season against Lyn and Viking, who both was sent home with a 2-0 defeat. Berg, Martinsen and Bertelsen are out with injuries.
Valerenga  have won their last two home matches, but are struggling in attack in the rest of their matches. They are missing good offensive players like the Fredrikstad's Kvisvik and Elyounoussi. They have lost all their three away matches so far.
1-1-1 here the last three years.

Head2Head:
May 7, 06 Fredrikstad FK 2 - 1 Valerenga
Sep 13, 05 Fredrikstad FK 0 - 4 Valerenga
May 3, 04 Fredrikstad FK 2 - 2 Valerenga

I believe the host will win this match, but I would not advice putting any bets on it. Open match.

The best bet in this match is Over 2.5 goals but if you want to you could also put in a small bet on home win.

Remember. Find out yourself wink Good luck!

Re: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 25-26-27-28/5

Sunday 27.05 19:00 CET:

Sandefjord - Rosenborg BK

Sandefjord are without away wins, but have like last season been strong at home. Managed to win over Aalesund and Tromso here, and deserved at least one point when they were beaten 2-3 against Brann in their last home match. They are struggling with a few players missing at the back, Sohna is suspended while Johannesen, Andersson and Odegaard are out with injuries.

Rosenborg have been extremly unstable so far this season. They where very good when they won 4-1 over Start in their last match and Brann in the home match before that, but have been struggling in several matches this season. They where ok in their first away match of the season against Viking, deserved to loose against Stabaek and VIF in their last away matches. Riseth are still missing, while Braaten returns.

Head2Head:
Sep 21, 06 Rosenborg BK 2 - 5 Sandefjord
Sep 10, 06 Sandefjord 0 - 2 Rosenborg BK
May 7, 06 Rosenborg BK 3 - 1 Sandefjord

0-2 in the similar meeting here last season, but Sandefjords big win on Lerkendal in the cup is probably remembered by the players. RBK should be able to win this match easily even with their reserves, but in reality there are no teams that have it easy against Sandefjord. Away win, but do not consider betting if the odds is lower than 1.80. Over 2.5 goals is also something to consider, but with the best odds on the market at 1.67, it is almost not playable, eventough I would consider putting a small stake on it.

Away win and Over 2.5 goals in this one, but be aware of the odds.

Remember. Find out yourself wink  Good luck!

Re: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 25-26-27-28/5

1-2 win to Rosenborg wink  They had a 0-2 lead but Knarvik made it 1-2 on a penalty in the 60th minute. Hope a lot of you followed this pick wink Will soon post info on the matches tomorrow.
