Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Alfheim Stadion will host Thursday’s Eliteserien game between Tromso and Valerenga, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Tromso have recorded only one win in the 2022 season to date, but the bookies still see them as slim favourites to beat Valerenga on home soil. All Opsahl, Psyche, and Robertsen are major doubts, while Ebiye and Mikkelsen should keep their spots up front.
The Pride of Oslo, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Jerv and Sandefjord. Valerenga have found their best form of late, but beating Tromso on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at “Alfheim”, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. A man to watch in the away team will be Iceland international Vidar Kjartansson, who has netted three goals in the Norwegian top flight so far this term, while defender Christian Borchgrevink remains in the recovery room.
