Valerenga vs Mjondalen (By: Saconex)
Valerenga finished last season 6th. Their record at home wasn’t really impressive with 7-5-3. But reports in front of this season are clear: they should be capable of fighting for medals this season, and nothing else than 3 points in the opening match vs new promoted team Mjondalen will be a disappointment. Former Celtic manager Deila are in charge, and some changes have been made in the squad. Overall they have looked good in the friendlies in the winter, and getting goals scored havent looked as a problem for Valerenga.
Mjondalen finished 2th and grabbed a direct promotion spot last year in the OBOS League. They were pretty impressive, specially their defence was the by far best in the league. When that being said, they are probably the weakest team on paper in front of this season, and they will probably fight hard against relegation. They lost their last friendly match 0-1 against another team that probably will be fighting against relegation, Stabaek.
New season means that surprises will come at some point, but I think the hosts will be ready here and start off the season with 3 points. Mjondalen doesn’t have any pressure of course, and that can give them a boost, but Valerenga should be capable of controlling this match into 3 points. Hopefully they win this match by 2+ goals. 2-0?
