Norway Eliteserien – Bodø/Glimt v Mjøndalen Preview (25/10/20)

Match Preview

Bodø/Glimt lost for the first time this season when they went down 2-4 at Molde last week. That was no disgrace as they were facing a very strong side and had a number of injuries. I suspect it wont be a vintage Glimt that gets over the line to win the gold medal this season now that they’ve lost the likes of Jens Petter Hauge. Injury problems to Sondre Fet, new man Hugo Vetelsen and possibly Philip Zinckergagel could set them back today. Mjøndalen travel here resurgent after a victory vs Brann last week but now have to face Glimt and Molde back to back. With goal difference potentially being crucial I suspect MIF would be happy just to avoid getting pasted. Last season manager Vegard Hasnsen managed to come up with a gameplan which enabled them to pick up a 0-0 draw in this fixture. I suspect a similar sort of tactic today, sit very deep and basically try to frustrate Glimt. The home -1.75 handicap and over 3.5 goals doesn’t interest me. Something like Glimt to win to nil could be worth considering because I don’t personally see MIF scoring.

Prediction: 2-0

Recommended bet: None
