Odd did not play with their usual conviction against Tromso, and their play suffered for it, unable to put sustained pressure on their opponents, and although they were only a wasted chance away from snatching a late victory, the 2-2 draw was the result both teams deserved. That means that Odd have not won on the road in their past three away matches. Aalesund produced a strong performance but failing to convert a single of the many chances they created against a deep-lying Viking side, while at the same time being unable to contain the counter attacks led to a heavy 4-0 defeat, the second in a row. However, the side will take heart from the performance. Odd are far less stable than they were last season, something that is reflected in some uneven results. Aalesund have improved greatly after a meagre start. However if Odd are on their usual behaviour at home, Aalesund will surely struggle to get something from this game.
