Topic: Norway - Tippeligaen picks 20-21/6

Here are a pick for the Norwegian Tippeligaen for Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday 20.06 19:00 CET:

Brann - Aalesund

Brann still at the top. 0-6 defeat against Lyn on Saturday and only the visitors have conceded more goals than theri 18. Opdal is suspended for this match.

AaFK lost 1-4 at home against Stabaek this weekend. Have surprised with 2-1-2 away from home.

Head2Head:
Aug 7, 05 SK Brann Bergen 0 - 0 Aalesunds FK
Jun 29, 05 SK Brann Bergen 3 - 2 Aalesunds FK
May 2, 05 Aalesunds FK 1 - 3 SK Brann Bergen
Aug 10, 03 SK Brann Bergen 3 - 0 Aalesunds FK
Apr 26, 03 Aalesunds FK 3 - 3 SK Brann Bergen
 
All of Brann's home matches so far this season have ended in more than 2.5 goals and this one should to. The odds on a draw in this match tempts us.

Draw, Aalesund to win on 0-1 handicap and Over 2.5 goals.

Wednesday 20.06 19:00 CET:

Sandefjord - Fredrikstad

0-0-5 in form in the league and cup defeat against FK Tonsberg for the hosts. Three one goal defeats in a row at home.

Fredrikstad are still in the battle for the title. Without defeats in four matches in a row. Nice 3-0 win at home against Start on Sunday. 0-2 defeat here last season, but Kvisvik and Fredrikstad should be favourites in this match.

Head2Head:
Nov 12, 06 Fredrikstad FK 3 - 0 Sandefjord Fotball
Oct 1, 06 Fredrikstad FK 2 - 1 Sandefjord Fotball
May 21, 06 Sandefjord Fotball 2 - 0 Fredrikstad FK
Jun 15, 05 Fredrikstad FK 2 - 0 Sandefjord Fotball
Oct 5, 03 Sandefjord Fotball 3 - 1 Fredrikstad FK
 
Will try with less than 2.5 goals in this match. Likely to be few goals and pretty good odds as well.

Fredrikstad to win, Fredrikstad to win on 0-1 handicap and Under 2.5 goals.

Good luck!

Stabaek - Viking

Stabaek have 5-3-0 and have climbed up to second place. They showed very good attacking football against Aalesund last weekend. Alanzinho is unsure for this match.

Viking is one point behind. Got their fourth win in a row against Tromso, but now there are four difficult matches waiting for them. They have 4-2-0 at Nadderud on their last six matches here.

Head2Head:
Sep 17, 06 Viking Stavanger 3 - 1 Stabaek IF
May 13, 06 Stabaek IF 1 - 1 Viking Stavanger
Sep 26, 04 Viking Stavanger 1 - 0 Stabaek IF
May 31, 04 Stabaek IF 0 - 1 Viking Stavanger
Nov 1, 03 Viking Stavanger 3 - 1 Stabaek IF
Jul 20, 03 Stabaek IF 0 - 2 Viking Stavanger
Sep 1, 02 Stabaek IF 1 - 2 Viking Stavanger

Will try with under 2.5 goals in this match, pretty good odds on that. I will also try with Viking to win.

Viking to win, Viking to win on 0-1 handicap and Under 2.5 goals.

Will also try a small bet on Viking's Alexander Odegaard to score in this match.

Good luck!

Wednesday 20.06 19:00 CET:

Stromsgodset - Tromso

Stromsgodset is number 7. Three one goal wins in a row away, but at Marienlyst they have not win since the first match this season. Keeper Johnsen is back in form and Kovacs and Andersen returns from suspension. Deila will miss this match as well.

Tromso have now three defeats in a row. Four difficult matches after this one. Rushfeldt and Reginussen are probably back.

Head2Head:
Oct 6, 02 Stromsgodset IF 2 - 3 Tromso IL
Jun 19, 02 Tromso IL 4 - 2 Stromsgodset IF
Sep 16, 01 Stromsgodset IF 0 - 0 Tromso IL
May 24, 01 Tromso IL 0 - 1 Stromsgodset IF
Oct 23, 99 Stromsgodset IF 3 - 6 Tromso IL

Stromsgodset to win and Under 2.5 goals.

Good luck!

Valerenga - FC Lyn Oslo

Valerenga managed a win over a weak Lillestrom on Sunday. 8-10 in goaldifference says everything. Myhre have everyone available for this match.

Lyn crushed Brann on Satuday. Henning Berg's team is the most scoring team in the league, but 1,8 conceded goals per match is up 64% compared to the last two years. Sokolowski may return. Lyn have 7-3-0 on the last ten meetings against their city rivals.

Head2Head:
Jul 22, 06 Valerenga IF Oslo 1 - 2 FC Lyn Oslo
Apr 17, 06 FC Lyn Oslo 2 - 1 Valerenga IF Oslo
Oct 2, 05 Valerenga IF Oslo 0 - 1 FC Lyn Oslo
Jun 12, 05 FC Lyn Oslo 1 - 1 Valerenga IF Oslo
Jul 26, 04 Valerenga IF Oslo 1 - 2 FC Lyn Oslo

I believe there will be plenty of goals in this derby match, at least more than 2.5 goals.

Lyn to win, Lyn to win on 0-1 handicap and Over 2.5 goals.

Good luck!

Thursday 21.06 18:30 CET:

Start - Odd

1-0-3 in form have seen Start closing in on the bottom of the table. They won 3-1 against Sandefjord in their last home match, but lost 0-3 against Fredrikstad on Sunday. Stromstad returns.

Odd are struggling and Tommy Svindal Larsen said on Tuesday, that it will be tough for the club to survive. 1-1 against Valerenga on their last away match, but lost 1-2 at home against Rosenborg on Monday, their fifth one goal defeat so far.

Head2Head:
Nov 5, 06 IK Start Kristiansand 2 - 1 Odd Grenland Skien
Jul 16, 06 Odd Grenland Skien 2 - 0 IK Start Kristiansand
Aug 28, 05 Odd Grenland Skien 2 - 0 IK Start Kristiansand
May 8, 05 IK Start Kristiansand 4 - 0 Odd Grenland Skien

Odd have lost three out of five away matches this season with only one goal, while Start have 1-3-1 at home on 0-1 handicap.

Start to win and Draw on 0-1 handicap.

Good luck!

Thursday 21.06 20:30 CET:

Rosenborg - Lillestrom

5-2-3 for the hosts. Ten points on their last four matches. Riseth replaces Basma.

Lillestrom have the same amount of points, but 0-1-3 on their last four. ON Sunday they produced no good chances against Valerenga. Occean and Kippe returns from suspension. The team must play better this time, if they want to bring back points from Lerkendal. They have 1-2-7 on their last ten here.

Head2Head:
Jul 30, 06 Rosenborg BK 3 - 1 Lillestrom SK
Apr 9, 06 Lillestrom SK 3 - 3 Rosenborg BK
Aug 7, 05 Rosenborg BK 1 - 2 Lillestrom SK
May 1, 05 Lillestrom SK 1 - 1 Rosenborg BK
Aug 14, 04 Lillestrom SK 3 - 2 Rosenborg BK

Rosenborg to win with 0-1 handicap in this one is also a possible bet. 6-1-3 including the handicap on their last ten meetings in Trondheim. 9 of the last ten similar meetings between these two have ended with over 2.5 goals.

Rosenborg to win, Rosenborg to win on 0-1 handicap and Over 2.5 goals.

Good luck!
