The second Saturday game from the Norwegian Eliteserien features Sogndal taking on Brann on Fosshaugane Campus. Brann come here as bookies favourites after 9 goals in their last 2 games but Sogndal will try to prove them wrong. The hosts after a decent run of games winning both their last 2 and drawing the previous one. The team has currently won 11 points form their first 9 games giving it the 10th place in the table. At home the team looks well. So far 7 of their 11 points come from home games with 2 impressive wins scoring 4 goals in each. 9 goals in 4 home games is something their fans would like to continue seeing. Last round the team took a surprising victory away over Molde. The hosts were dominating possession but failing to create and convert chances. Most of their efforts went either wide of target or were blocked by determined Sogndal defenders. The first half finished without goals but the second started with a storm. 2 goals in the space of 10 minutes from Sogndal followed immediately by a goal for Molde opened the game. Molde continued to try and break through Sogndal defence but failed and thus lost the game. Brann so far are having decent season. The team sits on 3rd place 3 points away from leaders Rosenborg. The team picked the majority of its points at home and tops the table for home games but struggles away. 4 wins and a draw at home and just a single victory on the road looks concerning. Still one of the defeats away came against Rosenborg which is somewhat understandable but losing to Kristiansund raised some eyebrows. The previous 2 games Brann netted 9 goals. Sandefjord and Molde both failed to cope with the team attacking potential. Brann was literally on fire last game. 4 goals before the half time dominating every statistics possible in this game was scary to watch if you are not their fan. 19 shots overall against the 4 Sandefjord managed hitting the target 11 times and scoring 5. The question here is will they be able to carry this momentum into their away games. Sogndal have their home advantage and Brann is sure to have some problems. Still the team is in great form up front and I have no doubt they will find the net eventually. The team though lets easy goals on the road so my pick for this game is BTTS: Yes for 2.00 at bwin. Good Luck!
