Team News: Stabæk
Matthew Rusike (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jeppe Moe (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be able to feature for Stabæk manager Jan Jönsson.
It seems likely that De Blaa look set to use a 4-3-3 formation this time featuring Markus Sandberg, Emil Jonassen, Mats Solheim, Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Jørgen Øveraas, Hugo Vegard Vetlesen, Tortol Lumanza Lembi, Emil Bohinen, Kornelius Normann Hansen, Erik Botheim and Romain Gall.
Team News: Bodo Glimt
With a completely injury-free squad available for selection, Bodo Glimt manager Kjetil Knutsen has no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
We reckon that Glimt might elect for a 4-3-3 formation, choosing Joshua Smits, Alfons Sampsted, Marius Lode, Brede Moe, Fredrik Andre Bjørkan, Sondre Brunstad Fet, Patrick Berg, Ulrik Saltnes, Jens Petter Hauge, Kasper Junker and Philip Zinckernagel.
We’ve got the feeling that Stabæk are likely to score a goal against this Bodo Glimt lineup, although just one goal probably won’t quite be enough.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 victory for Bodo Glimt after the 90. Should be a good one.
