The Eliteserien tie at Brann Stadion on Sunday sees home team SK Brann take to the field against Bodo Glimt.
Our SK Brann v Bodo Glimt predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest betting odds.
SK Brann will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 5-1 Eliteserien defeat in their last game at the hands of Vålerenga.
The only player to score from SK Brann was Petter Strand (8'). Osame Sahraoui (4', 34') and Viðar Örn Kjartansson (14', 16', 23') scored for Vålerenga.
It has been seldom in recent games where SK Brann have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Brann have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals in the process.
Their past results show that SK Brann:
- haven't beaten Bodo Glimt in their last 2 league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 5 league matches. Things will have to change soon.
Bodo Glimt will go into the meeting following on from a 3-1 Europa League Qualifiers win versus Žalgiris Vilnius in their most recent fixture.
In their last 6 clashes, Bodo Glimt have helped themselves to a tally of 26 goals. Glimt have also scored in every single one of those games. During that period, they’ve seen 4 goals go against them. Historical results aside, we must now wait to see whether that trend will be maintained in this next match.
A look at their previous results shows us that Bodo Glimt:
- have not won against SK Brann when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- have not been beaten in their last 9 league matches away from home. What a good run they have put together.

Team News: SK Brann
SK Brann manager Kåre Ingebrigtsen will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game thanks to a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
In our view, Brann could line up in a 4-3-3 system for the game, handing starts to Markus Pettersen, Thomas Grøgaard, Vegard Forren, Bismark Evans Acosta, Jon Helge Tveita, Petter Strand, Kristoffer Barmen, Mikael Berg Kvinge, Robert Taylor, Daouda Karamoko Bamba and Erlend Hustad.
Team News: Bodo Glimt
Thanks to a fully injury-free group to choose from, Bodo Glimt manager Kjetil Knutsen does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this game.
There’s a good chance that Glimt might play in a 4-3-3 system, choosing Nikita Khaikin, Alfons Sampsted, Marius Lode, Brede Moe, Fredrik Andre Bjørkan, Sondre Brunstad Fet, Patrick Berg, Ulrik Saltnes, Philip Zinckernagel, Victor Boniface and Jens Petter Hauge.
We envisage that SK Brann should have enough to put a goal past this Bodo Glimt team, but a single goal is unlikely to be enough to avoid defeat.
We’ve gone for both teams to score in a 1-2 winning score for Bodo Glimt when all is said and done. There looks to be little in this one.
