Brann recorded a victory in the last round against Stabaek with 0:2 result, away from home.
None of the teams stood out too much in the first part, which was quite equal, but in the second, the visitors looked far more dangerous with the ball to their feet, as they were able to score two times. Taylor scored first in the 62nd minute, while the final result was set by Bamba who scored in the late phase of the match, in the fourth minute of added time.
With this victory, Brann found themselves in the 7th place, and they will have to be more constant in the matches to come if they want to move closer to the European exit places.
First goalkeeper Ahamada (9/0) remains injured, while forward Rolantsson (5/0) remains out sidelined, as well as defender Sorensen (5/0).
Stromsgodset suffered a loss to Viking in the last round of Eliteserien, playing at their home stadium.
The visitors had the upper hand in the first part of the match when they were sharper, but the goalkeeper of the home team managed to save his goal. Other than that, this match was quite a passive one up until the 74th minute, when the hosts made a huge setback and scored an own goal. Impact on the home team was obvious, as they looked incapable of scoring an equalizer, conceding another one in the added time.
Stromgodset occupies 10th place in the standings, having too many ups and downs this season.
The guests will miss long-term injured left-back Mendy (no performance so far), but also another left-back Parr (4/0) and midfielder Stengel (6/1).
Teams concede frequently
If we take a short look at the history of matches of these two teams, it is obvious that their defensive line isn’t doing their part, as they are conceding in almost every match. I don’t see why this one would be an exception, and I can say with high certainty, that there will be no clean sheets in this one, as their offense is still functioning quite well, with both teams having imperative of getting points.
