Lillestrom vs Aalesund: Top Free Betting Tips
Lillestrom has an easy challenge to continue their winning streak as they face the bottom side Aalesund in the next Eliteserien fixture. Both teams will be entering Arasen Stadion on Wednesday, 19 July. Orange and Blue make an appearance in this game after successive defeats against Odd and HamKam in the Norwegian first division.
Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes
In this upcoming encounter at the Arasen Stadion, it seems highly likely that both teams will find the back of the net. Lillestrom has been showing signs of improvement and is currently in 6th place in the table and aspiring to secure a spot in European competitions. However, their home performance has been inconsistent, conceding 12 goals in their last 5 matches at their backyard. Aalesund, on the other hand, is struggling at the bottom of the table, lacking the quality to climb out of the relegation zone, and has yet to earn a single point in away matches this season. Despite their poor form, Aalesund has managed to score in their last 4 away games. Considering these factors, it is expected that both teams will manage to find the net during the game, making a BTTS prediction a reasonable choice for this matchup.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Three of the previous five H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Lillestrom comes into this game after thrashing six goals in the previous two league outings. Aalesund has arranged an average of one goal per game in the recent five matches in Eliteserien. Tongoshirts will also be keen for scoring chances over Lillestrom’s out-of-form defence that has claimed zero clean sheets in the last five fixtures. Considering these facts, we expect the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this encounter.
Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Lillestrom
Lillestrom has found the back of the net more than once in four of the previous five games in Eliteserien. The Canaries have also conceded just one goal in three of those matches. On the other hand, Aalesundh has been clipped to just one goal per game in three of the recent five league outings. In the H2Hs, the Birds have scored at least twice in three of the five home meetings against Aalesund, conceding only two in total. Hence, we believe to see a 3-1 lead for Lillestrom before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
