Mjondalen were outplayed for the first half by an eager and attacking Odd side, who went 2-0 up before the half was over. However, it was a different and more determined Mjondalen that came on in the second half, intent on proving that they can play football at this level. Through high and aggressive pressure, they forced mistakes from their opponents, which they then used to get back to a 2-2 draw. Lillestrom had a quiet game against Stabaek, and did not have an answer to the way in which their opponents took control of the game. In the end, the 2-0 defeat reflected the side’s efforts and chances accurately. That was the side’s first defeat of the season, having played out three draws earlier. Though they have not yet won a game. Mjondalen looks to be playing with more conviction than their opponents for this fixture. Lillestrom have not convinced, and their better results and games increasingly look to be against equally struggling teams. Normally, Lillestrom would be favourites for this match, but looking at the form, I reckon Mjondalen can get a win here if they keep playing like they have been so far this season.Over 3.5.
