Vålerenga and Brann met in a warm-up match at the Intility Arena in the capital on Friday afternoon.
Only a few minutes were played in Oslo when the guests from Bergen took the lead. A low cross from the right found Matthias Rasmussen in the penalty area and he headed the ball past Marcus Seguing at Valerenga.
Watch Brann’s first goal here:
It was the Reds who clearly created the first 45 minutes and had several good chances to extend their lead.
After an attack on the left flank, Bergens reached three ends, but the hosts fled in fear.
Just before the break, Brann conceded a penalty kick following a corner kick. Sivert Heltne Nielsen turned the ball into the net from 11 metres.
Watch the penalty here:
Brann continued to find the net after the break and played the 65th minute when Ole Diedrik Blomberg netted the visitors’ third goal.
A lukewarm clearing of Vålerenga ended up at Blomberg’s feet and he could easily put the ball into the goal from around 14 metres.
Watch Brann’s third goal here:
Before the end of the quarter, Vålerenga will receive a bonus. The home team started quickly off their goalkeeper before the ball was finally played into the box. Alternate Seedy Jatta was there and drove the gearbox with his head.
Watch the Vålerenga reduction here:
There were no more scores in Friday’s match. The Oslo team has won three training matches this winter. In addition, they drew against the Danish AaB, but on Friday it was a loss for the children of Eilev Fagermo.
Brann also got off to a good start with three wins in four matches. The last match ended 3-3 against Sarpsborg.
