Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought Norwegian Cup win (1-0) over Fram, Odd will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Eliteserien when they take on Haugesund on Sunday afternoon. The Oddrane aim to move closer to the top half of the table, but the game against Haugesund will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Experienced attacker Kristoffer Larsen is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the loss to Sandefjord.
Haugesund, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-4 loss to Molde. Considering that Jostein Grindhaug’s troops have been anything but impressive on the travels this season, we are tempted to put our money on Odd, who undisputedly deserve to sit in the top half of the table. Defender Joakim Vage Nilsen is Haugesund’s long-term absentee.
