Norway Eliteserien – Kristiansund v Brann Preview (15/9/19)

Match Preview

Kristiansund are suddenly back in form after winning their last two matches. The return from injury of Flamur Kastrati plus new signing Amahl Pellegrino seems to have made a real difference to them in the final third. KBK are one of the hardest sides to predict in this league but this is usually the sort of favourable situation they enjoy. Kristiansund love being an underdog at home to one of the bigger sides and for some reason Brann are the bookies favourites today. This is despite the absence of several players including Oragdic, Bamba, Haugen and possibly a couple of others. Brann have been reasonably decent on the road in 2019 but this is a real banana skin type fixture away at a difficult location. This isn’t a stadium that Brann have enjoyed visiting in recent years, losing 1-0 in 2017 and then 3-1 last season. I’m not saying they will get beaten again, but it wouldn’t surprise me. I don’t see Kristiansund losing this match very easily anyway and something like s draw is going to be my prediction.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
