Floro vs Nest-Sotra by 20Legend
With only two matches to go, things are really heating up in 2nd Division these days. This game will be truly special as 1st placed Floro takes on 2nd placed Nest-Sotra for three highly important points.
Floro has enjoyed a terrific season that not even their most loyal supporters could predict before the season started. The team has looked unbeatable all season with only one loss in 24 games (20-3-1). Their last win was another demonstration of their power both defensively and offensively against 5th placed Vidar (0-4) away from home. The match report clearly states that the result does not lie either as the margin could have been even bigger. Vidar is a strong team is this league and it should normally be a much more equal opponent. However, Floro is on a different level this season as they are chasing promotion. Vidar did only produce one chance before halftime, while the chances vanished during the second half.
Floro’s strong defensive approach is much of the reason of their stability as well. The club has gone four straight games without conceding and that builds confidence. Floro has also won 12 games in a row and it seems like the club has come into the zone were everything goes according to plan.
Nest-Sotra cannot be less satisfied with their season so far as they are in 2nd place with 60 points. However, it is three points up to 1st placed Floro which puts a giant pressure on them before today’s match. The club has 19-3-2 to show for and four wins in a row. Their last match against 10th placed Lorenskog really showed their capabilities as a team with a 9-0 win. Even though they were huge favorites to begin with, Nest-Sotra really sent a message to their opponent in 1st place with that performance. It looked like someone played Fifa with the goals coming in like a tornado with seven goals before halftime. The match was obviously gone for Lorenskog and Nest-Sotra managed to rest some key-players in order to be ready for this weekend. The second half became a formality and it was an easy task to add another two goals with Lorenskog also getting two players sent off as well.
It could not be a more dramatic finish to these great teams’ season. Floro has every advantage with three point’s clearance in addition to a +5 better goal difference at the moment. That leaves them in a great position with only a point here, while their opponent must go for all three points. However, I believe that both teams will do as here as the fans are certainly planning a feast already in this game. I record is expected at the stadium with 4000 fans watching that will create an atmosphere that is not usual at this level. Their first meeting ended 1-1, but the reports stated that Floro was the stronger team already back then. With the two best offensive teams in the league meeting up for a second time, in addition to the importance of these points, I strongly believe in at least four goals in this match.
