Goals galore predicted as Odd Grenland host Valeranga...
After the joys of the 64 World Cup matches we turn our attentions to the more humble fare of the Norwegian top flight. The aptly named Tippeligaen throws up a tasty game this evening between Odd Grenland and Valerenga which is screaming goals all the way to Goal.com towers.
Odd Grenland reside 11th in the 16 team Tippeligaen with a W5 D6 L4 record at the halfway point of the season. They've only failed to score once all season, including cup games, and recent matches have provided bags of goals. They thumped Honefoss 5-1 in the cup last time out, lost 3-1 to the brilliantly named Viking before that and beat Mjondalen 6-2 in their preceding fixture.
Valeranga are pitched in third place with a game in hand on Tromso and Rosenborg with 28 points. Their record reads W8 D4 L3 with a goal difference of +15 to Odd Grenland's even steven zero. As the current top scorers in the division they've failed to get on the mark twice and one of those was against Norwegian kings Rosenborg. Goals have been flying in as they slaughtered Lillestrom 4-1 and Haugesund 5-2 in their two previous games.
One of the batterings they handed out was a 6-1 hiding of Odd Grenland earlier in the season. In the head to head between the pair eight of the last ten games have featured at least three goals including the last five encounters. We expect more of the same tonight.
* The safe bet is over 2.5 goals at skinny odds of 1.55
* Better value will be found by backing over three goals at 1.86. When these two get together goals usually flow.
* Match Odds: Odd Grenland 2.28, Draw 3.32, Valeranga 2.79
