Team News: Strømsgodset IF
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Strømsgodset IF manager Bjørn Petter Ingebretsen to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Kreshnik Krasniqi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
In our view, Godset may well kick off with a 4-3-3 system in the match, handing starts to Viljar Myhra, L. Vilsvik, Ari Leifsson, Gustav Valsvik, Thomas Grøgaard, Herman Stengel, Johan Hove, Jack Ipalibo, Kristoffer Tokstad, L. Salvesen and T. Fjeld Gulliksen.
Team News: Lillestrøm SK
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Lillestrøm SK boss Geir Bakke has no fitness worries at all before this clash.
We’re of the thinking that Kanarifuglene appear most likely to elect for a 3-4-3 formation, starting the game with Mads Christiansen, Espen Garnas, Igoh Ogbu, Lars Mogstad Ranger, Eskil Edh, Magnus Knudsen, Ifeanyi Matthew, Vetle Dragsnes, Ylldren Ibrahimaj, Akor Adams and Gjermund Asen.
Lillestrøm SK and Strømsgodset IF could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even match with a 0-0 score at the end of this one.
