Our tips, poll and stats for SK Brann v Vålerenga can all be found here (including the best match odds).
SK Brann will be wanting a better result here after a 3-1 Eliteserien defeat in their last game at the hands of Strømsgodset IF.
For SK Brann, the scorers were Taijo Teniste (8' Own goal) and Gilbert Koomson (72'). Moses Mawa (54') and Marcus Mølvadgaard (90') scored for Strømsgodset IF.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where SK Brann have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Brann have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 12 goals along the way.
Leading up to this clash, SK Brann:
- haven't beaten Vålerenga in their last 7 matches in the league.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 2 matches in the league.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Molde FK in Eliteserien action, Vålerenga and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only name on the scoresheet from Vålerenga was Bård Finne (86'). Fredrik Aursnes (28'), Tobias Christensen (56'), Ohi Omoijuanfo (78') and Etzaz Hussain (90') scored for Molde FK.
In the course of their six most recent matches, Dag-Eilev Fagermo's Vålerenga have found the back of the net 7 times thus earning them the goals per game average of 1.17.
A look at their previous results shows us that Vålerenga:
- have not registered a win against SK Brann when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. Not good at all.
- remain undefeated by SK Brann when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league.

A look at their prior head-to-head clashes stretching back to 02/07/2017 shows us that SK Brann have won 0 of these games & Vålerenga 3, with the number of drawn matches standing at 3.

Team News: SK Brann
SK Brann boss Lars Nilsen will be grateful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this match owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection. Amer Ordagic will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Vålerenga
Owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from, Vålerenga boss Dag-Eilev Fagermo does not have any fitness concerns at all before this match.
We think that Vålerenga will have a tough ask to see themselves scoring against this SK Brann side who we think will score & stay on top.
We’re therefore predicting a good tussle with a 1-0 win for SK Brann when all is said and done.
There should be little in it.
