The Ranheim & Lillestrøm managers S. Maalen and G. Bakke are both dreading and looking forward to this decisive game in the upper regions of the Obos-Ligaen league table.

Ranheim and Lillestrøm should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on artifical turf and that the visiting Lillestrøm have a different surface at their stadium (grass). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on artifical turf is 7-3-14 (win-draw-loss) from 24 matches.
