Valerenga vs Lillestrom (By: Saconex)
Valerenga (3) vs Lillestrom (13)
Local rivalry between these two and chances should be good for a entertaining match. Valerenga are coming from crushing a lower league team 0-5 in the Cup and they didn’t have any problems winning 2-0 against Stromsgodset (10) before that. 5-2-2 so far is strong and they really look like a team capable of reaching a top 3 position this season. They are undefeated at home so far; 4-0-0.
Lillestrom managed to stay away from relegation with small margins last season and the start this season isnt specially good either. They won their Cup match as well in the midweek, but they are without a win in 4 league matches (0-2-2) and losing 4-0 vs Bodo/Glimt (4) & 0-3 at home vs Odd (2) isnt exactly solid, although both opponents are solid teams atm. Away record; 0-2-2.
* Valerenga won both matches by 1-0 last season
These matches are normally tight for sure. But when taking a look at the teams as it stands atm, it should be big difference in quality here imo. Valerenga are playing good attacking football at the moment, and Lillestrom really looks shaky in their defence. The hosts will probably control it in some way, but the guests should take the counters and go for goals as well. So, chances should be good for the hosts to win this and I think it will be a entertaining match, hopefully with goals both ways.
