Levanger there for the taking.

FOOTBALL LEVANGER v BRANN 6pm TWO divisions separated these sides in 2014 and even though they are now in the same section in Norway there might still be a gulf when they square up this evening, writes Steve Davies.

Levanger, promoted as Division Two champions last autumn, already find themselves in the wrong half of Division One and are without a win in their last three.

Brann, meanwhile, dropped out of the Eliteserien for the first time, undone in the playoffs by Mjondalen.

The Bergen outfit have started their season well enough with just one loss in their opening nine matches and ought to be able to take another three points from the most northerly outpost in the division. The problem is the price - 8-11 - which is short enough given we are only in the early stages of the campaign and that Brann have drawn their last three.

If Brann do win it they can do so to nil, which is a 13-5 chance with Coral.

Certainly the Bergen side, managed by Rikard Norling whose past achievements include guiding Malmo to the Swedish title, are strong at the back. Former Costa Rica international Bismar Acosta has been added to a rearguard which already featured ex-Sociedad and Norway defender Vadim Demidov and that level of experience is likely to be significant over the course of the season.

They've also got the potential for goals courtesy of a line led by one time Portsmouth and Birmingham frontman Erik Huseklepp.

Recommendation Brann to win to nil 1pt 13-5 Coral
