Strømsgodset vs VålerengaNorway Eliteserien, KO: 19:00 Jul 4, 2021, Marienlyst Stadion
Two teams who like to play attacking football will meet in a warm Norway this Sunday evening as Strømsgodset entertain Vålerenga.
I’ve been on the beach as temperatures have been over 30 degrees, but in Drammen tomorrow night it should be a little cooler and hopefully we see an open game full of goals.
Strømsgodset are a completely different team at home than away from home this season so far. Three wins and a draw so far in the four home games, Godset have scored 10 goals and conceded 3. Compare that to just one point away from home, where they have conceded 15 and scored just 3 in five games.
Vålerenga have scored in all their games so far this season, 10 goals total coming in five away games so far, and despite injury issues they have continued to look dangerous in attack.
This game I really fancy goals in it, given how both teams will play and what we have seen from both of them this season, neither looks capable of keeping a clean sheet, just 3 between them so far in 20 games.
Henrik Udahl has come in for the injured Kjartansson and really made a big impression. Last year he was top scorer in the 1st division, but 4 goals in 5 games since taking his starting spot up front, Udahl looks the real deal in the top division as well.
Udahl is 2/1 to score any time tomorrow, and that looks like value to me for a striker who scored two in the last game, and looks like a really good finisher.
Goals on the menu
My main bet however is for goals in this one. The Asian Line over 3.0 is just slightly better than even money, and considering Vålerenga have scored in every away game, and Godset have scored in every home game, I think both teams will contribute to a high scoring game and we should easily see at least 3 goals.
Good news for Vålerenga is that it looks like Aron Dønnum will be back in the squad, his injury not as bad as first feared, his ability to create in the final third adds even more weight to the goals bet.
I do think Vålerenga might win this one, but at 21/20 I’m not totally sold on backing it, and would rather just back the goals and see a good match.
I think we might see a high corner count as well in this one, Godset games have all gone over 8.5 this season, with the home games all having at least 12 match corners. A Bet Builder with Both teams to score and corners might be a nice angle to go for if you wanted a little higher odds. Over 9.5 corners and BTTS is 5/4, and I think that has a really good chance of winning
