ODD Grenland manager Jan Nornes will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all before this clash owing to a fully healthy group available to choose from.

Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Stabæk manager Jan Jönsson to be concerned about. Jeppe Moe (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the view that ODD Grenland can get amongst the goals when they meet Stabæk, who could well find it tough getting goals.
We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 2-0 winning score for ODD Grenland when the full-time whistle blows.
