Bodo Glimt grabbed their fourth win in a row as they pulled a smash-and-grab in Molde last weekend. Scoring two goals in the first half, they defended well enough through the ensuing onslaught that they got away with a 2-1 win and not least all three points. That means that the side looking desperately lost at the bottom of the league earlier in the season is about to turn it all around.
Aalesund have similarly had their ups and downs this season. In their last league match they were defeated 4-1 by Viking after a dreadful display in the first half, on which they were unable to improve in the second. And although Aalesund have proven them selves to be resilient at home so far this season, their recent away record is three defeats and a draw in the last four.
Bodo Glimt have had fortune on their side, besting several sides against whom they were left with few chances beforehand. However, for this match, they are something akin to favourites. It will be interesting to see if they can handle that sort of pressure.
