Another home win for Valerenga – they rose to second place after a 3-1 win over Levanger

Vålerenga supporters can celebrate their second home win of the season when they won 3-1 over Levanger.

Thus, Oslo FC can finally start talking about getting rid of the 'home ghost'.

Before the 1-0 win over Bryan on May 4, Valerenga had gone seven games without a win at home in Obosligaen.

In this year's season, they are definitely 10th in the table if you only look at the home games.

A header from Mes Rix, a brilliant cross from Jones El-Abdawi and a field goal from Peter Strand secured victory for the Baki side. Top scorer Sanel Bojadzic scored the only penalty kick for Levanger.

Rex on the head

After a fresh start, Vålerenga took the lead after 21 minutes when Magnus Bech Riisnæs fired a cross towards the back post, which was blocked by Rijks.

The pain got worse for Levanger when Daniel Poulin winced in pain and grabbed his knee seven minutes later. As a result, Ådne Bruseth had to come into the centre-back position.

At the break Bakke made a change and replaced Vegar Eggen Hedenstad with Simen Juklerød. Arne Gunnes also came in for Adrian Teigen in the Levanger squad.

After less than an hour of play, Rex came close to doubling the lead for the hosts, but to the Dutchman's dismay, the ball crept in on the wrong side of the post.

12 goals

Unfortunately for the hosts, the cheers fell silent when captain Christian Borchgrevink pushed Ace Joe Sundre to the ground inside the 16-metre area. This allowed Bojadzic to score his twelfth goal of the season from a penalty kick.

However, Valerenga did not give up, and after just three minutes El Abdaoui hit the crossbar.

In the final minutes, Philipp Thorvaldsen was also very close to scoring Valerenga's third goal, but Jonas Pereira managed to throw himself in front and block the shot.

But as Thorvaldsen did not have the margins on his side, Strand was able to tip the ball into the corner for the goalkeeper and decide the score.

This was the first time in history that the two teams met. Levanger moved to the top flight before the season, while Valerenga moved from Eletserien in December.
