Bodo/Glimt vs Stromsgodset

Bodo/Glimt have been adopting their usual free scoring attitude as of late, but so far after seven games they haven't quite been as dominant as they have in previous seasons, now sitting 5th in the Eliteserien after their opening fixtures. They're yet to keep a clean sheet so far this term and despite dominating against Haugesund last time out, still managed to leak one in a 1-4 win on the road.

Having failed to score just once this season themselves in a 2-0 loss against Viking, there should be chances to find the net. Stromsgodset had an average campaign last year, finishing 9th, but they are making improvements as they've only just escaped the drop in their four seasons prior to that.

They had a rough start to their campaign having won just once in ther opening four, including a 0-5 loss at home to Sandefjord, but have really bucked their ideas up as of late, going unbeaten in their last four games and scoring at least 3 goals in 3 of those, including a 3-0 win against a decent Rosenborg side and a 3-2 win last time out against Valerenga.

When these pair met last season both fixtures were entertaining affair ending 1-1 at Stromsgodset and ending 7-2 the last time the two sides met here. I fancy a few more goals in this one today.

Viking vs Ham-Kam

I don't think there's any doubt here about Viking finding the net. They've been free scoring so far this season and have the chance to move top of the Eliteserien with a win if they can overturn Lillestrom's superior goal difference, albeit having played a game more.

They have however conceded in back-to-back games in the league against an average Tromso side and against non-league Rosseland they even managed to concede in the cup. So I think it's unfair on newly promoted Ham-Kam to price them up at this kind of level, especially as you can only really be impressed with their start to life at higher level.

Yes, they've only managed to pick up 8pts from their opening seven games, but they have a budget almost a third of that of the likes of Bodo/Glimt, Molde and Rosenborg and even held the latter to a 1-1 draw last time out.

Despite their position in the league at this early stage, Ham-Kam have still managed to find the net in six of their seven games so far this season with Enkerud stepping up to life in a higher league with three goals already. I think the visitors are more than capable of causing the 2nd placed side a few problems in this, but it will be difficult for them to keep a clean sheet against the leagues best goalscorers.

Roma vs Feyenoord

Regardless of the result in this final, both sides will see Europa League football next season having secured their passage through their respective leagues, but it's a chance here for both sides to seal some long-awaited silverware. Feyenoord haven't seen success since their 2016/17 Eredivisie title followed by a KNVB Cup title the following year and it's been over 50 years since they last saw success in Europe while it was clear how much this competition meant to Jose Mourinho in their semi-final win over Leicester as the side from Rome look to lock in their first silverware for 15 years and their first ever success in Europe.

The Dutch side have played some cracking attacking football throughout their Conference League campaign and I see no reason why that won't be the case again here for a style which has served them so well. Their last 10 consecutive games in Europe prior to a cagey 0-0 draw against Marseille in their semi-final 2nd leg had seen both teams find the net.

Roma have an abundance of talent themselves and it's a direct battle here between Cyriel Dessers and Tammy Abraham who with 10 goals and nine goals respectively are in a direct battle for the Conference League Golden Boot. I'm expecting an entertaining affair between two attacking sides and both teams to find the net looks a decent little bet to me.
