Nest-Sotra vs Asane by 20legend
Nest Sotra could not do anything about Bryne winning 2-1 in their first game of the season. Bryne really controlled the whole game and lead 2-0 until the 88th minute, when Nest Sotra got a quite lucky goal to make the final result 2-1. They should be favorites in this match though, as they are at their best when they can play at home. There is not any important missing for them tonight.
Asane impressed a lot during their first match against Levanger (5-0). They were dominant from start to finish and showed no fear going into OBOS-Ligaen. However, Levanger is also newcomers this season, so today’s match will be a way tougher test for them. The offensive duo Niklas Lerpold and Hakon Lorentzen were looking quite sharp as expected, while Jahn-Ove Wiik (captain) was finally back and stabilized the defense with his routine and calmness. Damian Sanchez Olsen and Joachim Raknes Forthun are still dealing with injuries and are both questionable ahead of this game as well.
It is just the second round in OBOS-Ligaen, but I think that this match can have some goals involved both ways. Nest Sotra is the clear favorites as they have more routine and the home advantage. They showed their strength at home last season, but they must step up from their last game in order to win. In addition; Asane is full of confidence after their 5-0 win last Monday. Their new youngsters from Brann and especially Hakon Lorentzen seem to fit very well into the team, and it will not be a surprise if they can score a goal tonight. I expect a scenario were Nest Sotra will try to control the game, and head for an early goal in order to put some insecurity into the young players in Asane. This is also a local derby and it is a lot of supporters expected to the game from both teams. I believe in goals both ways here, but my pick will be over 2,5 goals.
