- Valerenga have won their last two games against Aalesund.
- Valerenga are unbeaten at home with one win and one draw.
- Aalesund have lost three of their opening five matches and are yet to win a game.
Valerenga claimed a 1-1 draw away at Rosenborg on Wednesday night and sit 7th in the Eliteserien table having secured 8[ts from their opening five matches. Aalesund have found life in the top flight tough from day one and in midweek they suffered a third defeat in their opening five matches, going down 3-1 in their own backyard to Mjondalen.
Our prediction for a home win this weekend is based largely on the form both teams find themselves in the early stages of the season, as well as their recent head to head record. Valerenga have won their last two games against Aalesund, most recently a 5-1 victory at home back in 2017. The hosts head into Saturday’s clash having won two, drawn two and lost one of their opening five matches.
Valerenga drew their first home game 2-2 with Stabaek and then beat Viking 2-1, while Aalesund lost their opening away game 7-2 against Kristiansund and then drew 1-1 at Stromsgodset. The gap between these two clubs is already up to 6pts despite the pair only playing five games apiece, with the visitors finding themselves winless and in the relegation zone.
In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 3-1 win for the hosts as over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Valerenga’s last four matches and both teams have scored in each of those four games. Both teams have also scored in all of Aalesund’s five opening matches and four of those games have produced over 2.5 goals, with the visitors conceding three or more goals on three separate occasions.
