Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Despite suffering a 1-0 loss to Mjondalen at the weekend, Start remained one point above the relegation zone. Johaness Hardarson’s troops are eager to avoid relegation to the Norwegian second tier, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in the midweek clash. The good news for the hosts is that Mohamed El Makrini returns from suspension, while Henrik Gjesdal remains in the recovery room.
Brann, on the other hand, have already secured the Eliteserien survival, meaning that they have little to play for in Wednesday’s clash. Start want this win more than Brann; therefore, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Bergen empty-handed. The likes of Daniel Pedersen and Markus Pettersen remain in the recovery room for the visiting team, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the trip to Kristiansand.
