Due to a fully healthy group to pick from, SK Brann boss Lars Nilsen has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
It’s our belief that Brann will likely elect for a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Ali Ahamada, Taijo Teniste, Vegard Forren, Bismark Evans Acosta, Thomas Grøgaard, Fredrik Haugen, Daniel A. Pedersen, Amer Ordagic, Gilbert Koomson, Daouda Karamoko Bamba and Robert Taylor.
We believe that SK Brann and ODD Grenland may well end up cancelling each other out here.
Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We’re therefore anticipating a tight encounter with a score draw at the end of this one.
