Flood lights, rain corps and bow. The framework was put in place ahead of Brann’s promotion party, and victory machine Eirik Horneland truly delivered the goods in front of 13,181 spectators at Brann Stadium.
The scoring show wasn’t over until Bran scored a total of seven times on Grorud who had no chance.
– There are no more words to use! There is nothing else I can say! TV 2 football expert Yaw Ihle Amankwah says it’s an endless show, adding:
The challenge for Brann is that they will actually go seven months without playing a single competitive match.
Fredrik Borsting (2 goals), Matthias Rasmussen (2 goals), Niclas Castro and Friedrich Balesen Knudsen joined a 6-0 lead in the first half. Bård Finne scored the last match with a penalty kick in the second half.
– It’s great fun. Of course we dream of playing in front of a lot of spectators and scoring a lot of goals. The frame was perfect. For letting me do this in Opus, I am so grateful. It’s pretty cool, says Matthias Rasmussen, editor at Bran’s TV 2 Profile.
A 7-0 win means no one can catch Ran at the top of the Opus table.
“He was incredibly cool with the frame we got, and I’m so happy we were able to give them so many goals today,” Fire Sivert captain Heltne Nilsen told TV 2.
The enclosure is updated with highlights and feedback!
Last week, Grorud’s surprise win over Ranheim was within that Shooting promotion locked. However, at Brann Stadion, there was no warm welcome for the Oslo team.
Within the deadly Danish duo, Bran came forward after only ten minutes. Sven Kron’s cross for Fredrik Borsting who scored beautifully in volleyball to make it 1-0.
Halfway through the inning, Borsting was moving again. The winger was brought down in the Grorud area and the home team received a penalty kick. Niclas Castro took over and came out second to Bran.
Five minutes later, Fredrik Balesen-Knudsen scored over the net from a corner kick and headed home third for the Reds.
Top scorer Matthias Rasmussen provided the fourth goal. After a superb attack, Sivert Heltne Nilsen rolled the ball to an unmarked Southerner, immediately putting the ball into the far corner.
Borsting was also alone when he scored the fifth goal in Bergen, before Rasmussen came back again to complete the magical Bran Tour. 6-0 in the first half.
Exchange get rich and 7-0
With the victory almost done, Hornland made four changes in the first half. Among those entering were Andreas Skovgaard and Niklas Jensen Wassberg, both of whom have returned from injury.
Bård Finne also entered the second round. The striker hit the ball into the corner as he made it 7-0 from the penalty spot with a quarter of an hour remaining.
Bran has six games left in the season.
