Valerenga vs Elverum
Valerenga are placed 11th in the Norwegian Premier League and are usually a pretty solid home team. In the league they are standing with a home record of 4-3-1 and goal difference 12-6. They are coming from the 2-0 loss away vs Stromsgodset (12) in the league, this was their first loss in 7 matches. This is the 4th round of the Cup, and its expected that Valerenga wins this match against a much weaker team. They won vs 3.div team Orn-Horten in round 3. Its also reported that manager Ronny Deila will start with his best possible team.
Elverum, placed 15th in the OBOS League (2nd level) are without a win last 9 matches in the league. It looks like it will be a fight against relegation for them. Away record in the league; 1-4-5 and 8-20 goal difference. I guess that the main focus for the team will be to stay in the league, thats much more important. Although the team won on penalties in round 3 of the cup against Bodo (leaders of 2nd division in Norway) I don’t think they will stand a chance here.
The winner of this match have to travel to face Norwegian Champions Rosenborg in the quarter final. I actually believe this is another reason to back the hosts here. Elverum probably know they won’t stand a chance against a team as Rosenborg.
Valerenga are one of the biggest clubs in Norway, and in a season where medals in the league seems to be too difficult for the team, I expect them to win this match in a convincing way. A cup success will be great for the team who won it last time in 2008.
