DRAMMEN (VG) (SIF-Brann 3-1) Just 24 hours after two Brann players went missing as a result of the horrific nachspiel scandal, Strømsgodset cemented Bergen’s last place at Eliteserien.
“I think the first half is good, we have good behavior and we are good at the defensive game,” Eric Hornland tells VG.
Aune Heggebø put Brann ahead 2 – 0 with a superb free kick. He sent Hermann Stengel, Gustav Walsvik and Tobias Gulicksen Strömsgood to ninth and the team continued to despair.

It was simply amazing. I’ve had a good feeling since I came here. “It smelled a little bit off all the way, but when you have a player like Herman Stengel in midfield, it fixes our comeback,” Gulliksen told Discovery+ after the game.
The property still has the advantage of losing at home, while Bran has yet to win a single away game in 2021. With one game played more than Tromsø, Bergen have four points on safe ground. Now Bran is on his way to the Opus League.
– I think we’re making a good first half. We give it a good try. We are good for a long time. I think Godst was better than us in the second half. It could have been 2-2 at the end, and then all of a sudden we’re back in the game again. It’s a good attempt, but a tough game against a good team, Bran goalkeeper Håkon Opdal tells VG.
– It’s frustrating. “We had a good game and a good first half,” said captain Daniel Pedersen.
It happens after Bran’s squad flew east from Bergen on Saturday morning. Not a day since then Teammate Christopher Barmen (28) was fired. Because he had a “central role” during the week and a half that marked the club.
When you work closely in a relationship with guys, it’s heavy. I had a good, strong relationship with both Christopher and Michael, who came out, says coach Eric Hornland, who said he was not involved in the penalties business.
Goalkeeper Mikel Andersen (32) was not with Drammen after that The Dane has agreed with Bran to terminate the contract In the wake of the scandal, 10 other Brann players received what was described as a serious warning for attending the party.
The energy is back
– Now we will spend time together and gather. I think our chances of holding the place are good, it looks like the energy is back and we have good periods we can build on, Hornland says.
Internal investigations revealed “violations of general guidelines, standards, infection control rules and the reasonable expectations of our staff,” according to the club.
In parallel, the police are still investigating the possibility of a sexual assault in the aftermath.
At the same time, there is no good reason to believe that the case ended with the sanctions imposed by the Bran administration. Attorney Eric Monsen told VG that his client, 28-year-old Barmen, who in April signed a new four-year contract with the red shirts, feels unfairly treated.
