Levanger – Åsane
Levanger hosts Åsane in a match from the 17th round of the Norway’s 1. Division.
Levanger are not doing very well since the start of the new season. They are currently in the relegation zone of the league, being 15th in the standings with just 12 points won so far. It’s only Floro that are doing worse than them so far, being 16th with 11 points.
Right now Levanger’s record in the league shows 3 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 20 goals and conceded 36 in the same time. This team is in a pretty bad shape right now and their last five matches prove it – they have lost four of them and won just one point during the draw with Åsane – their next opponent. If they continue like this, for Levanger it’d be pretty difficult to survive.
Åsane on the other hand are 12th in the league standings after 16 games played. They have 19 points and a record of 5 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. They have 22 goals scored and 30 goals conceded. In their last five matches Åsane won once – against Notodden, made one draw against Åsane and suffered three defeats against Tromsdalen, Ullensaker / Kisa and Sandnes Ulf. Åsane started the campaign with an ambition to do well, but right now they are more close to the relegation zone than to the top. And this is the problem.
Based on their positions in the 1. Division standings, we shall assume that Åsane are a little bit better than Levanger at the moment. The current form of the two teams also proves it. The previous game between these two sides ended with a draw, so maybe now we will see a winner. Åsane are a slight favourite to win, but in same time Levanger are in a serious need of a win.
