Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Arasen Stadion will host Wednesday’s Eliteserien game between Lillestrom and Valerenga, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Thanks to a thrilling 4-1 win over Sandefjord, Lillestrom climbed to top position, with the team giving fans yet another reason for celebration. The league leaders are high on spirits ahead of the midweek clash, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Head coach Geir Bakke should have a full squad to choose from.
The Pride of Oslo, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, but seeing that they failed to impress in a 3-2 loss to Stromsgodet, we are tempted to put our money on Lillestrom this time out. A man to watch in the away team will be experienced Iceland attacker Kjartansson, while defender Borchgrevink remains on the sidelines with a long-term injury.
