Lillestrøm seem to be in good form, especially after their recent 3-0 victory over Rosenborg. In that match, Tonnesen opened the scoring in the 41st minute, followed by Olsen, who scored twice, including one from the penalty spot, in the 59th and 65th minutes, respectively. Not only did Lillestrøm secure the win, but they also controlled the game with 59% possession and managed 15 shots, 7 of which were on target.
Despite their strong form, it's important to note that Lillestrøm has lost one of their last 5 home games, and that loss came against the league leaders, Viking. Currently occupying the 6th position in the table, Lillestrøm have accumulated 36 points from 22 games, with 41 goals scored and 34 goals conceded.
Brann are currently in excellent form, having won their last five consecutive matches in the league. Their most recent victory came against Tromsø, where they secured a 2-1 win. In this game, Frederik Borsting and Bard Finne were the heroes for Brann, as they found the net in the 40th and 45+2nd minutes, respectively. This remarkable series of wins has catapulted Brann to the 4th position in the league standings, amassing a total of 42 points from 22 matches.
One key aspect of Brann's success has been their ability to score goals consistently, as they have notched 39 goals so far this season. Equally important is their relatively strong defensive record, having conceded 25 goals. This balance between offensive firepower and defensive stability has been pivotal in Brann's rise in the league.
As they prepare for this upcoming clash, Brann will be eager to maintain their winning streak and continue their ascent in the league standings. Their recent performances have demonstrated their capability to compete at a high level, and they will look to carry this momentum forward in pursuit of their objectives for the season.

Expert Betting Tips
The match between Lillestrøm and Brann could potentially be a high-scoring affair. Lillestrøm have shown vulnerability in defense, conceding 2 or more goals in 10 of their last 22 matches this season. On the other hand, Brann are riding a five-match winning streak and has been prolific in front of the goal, scoring 2 or more goals in 12 of their past 22 matches this season.
These trends indicate that both teams have the capability to find the back of the net, and with Lillestrøm's occasional defensive frailties and Brann's strong attacking form, goals from both sides seem likely.
