Sport: There are six points up to Kongsvinger at the top after five league rounds. The royal blues have only one victory, and only Aalesund (12) has conceded more goals than Vålerenga (11).

After the match, several Vålerenga supporters were out on the mat and showed their displeasure with their team. Several of the VIF players were away and complained.

Bakke was asked if he understands that the supporters reacted.

– My pleasure. It is Norway’s best supporters who follow us everywhere and create volume and enthusiasm and sing songs and put their soul and wages into this. I understand that there is frustration and anger, said Bakke.

He was also asked if he understands that his position is being questioned.

– Of course. It’s football we’re doing. It’s about results, said the VIF boss.

Petter Strand, Jones El-Abdellaoui and Christian Borchgrevink accounted for Vålerengas goals.

Conteh had been on the pitch for just ten minutes when he scored his first goal.

The Sierra Leonean landed in Norway a month and a half ago. In the series opener, he was sent off. Against Vålerenga, he scored his first goals and showed his great talent.

– It has to be the first time ever for a Mjøndalen player! exclaimed TV 2 commentator Kasper Kvello.

Mjøndalen has been predicted a difficult season. TV 2 has tipped them for direct relegation. This was not how it looked in Mjøndalen on Sunday.

A fine Vålerenga counterattack ensured a reduction at Strand. In overtime, the stage was set for the Conteh show. First, the Sierra Leonean headed in 2-1 in beautiful fashion. He then picked up the ball after rooting in Vålerenga’s free play and chipped the ball over Sjøeng.

– Terribly bad game, Vålerenga coach Bakke said during the break.

Substitute Singh finished via a Vålerenga foot and in an arc over Sjøeng to make it 5-1 and made the disaster complete for the capital club. El-Abdellaoui and Borchgrevink made it 3-5 in overtime.

Ola Kamara got his first start for Vålerenga. Mees Rijks was suspended after the red card against Lyn, and Henrik Bjørdal was out with an injury.

At the weekend, Bryne is waiting for Vålerenga. Mjøndalen welcomes Aalesund.

Sivert Øverby scored the first goal of the game. Conteh scored two goals in two minutes in overtime of the first half. The hat-trick was completed after 75 minutes. Keerat Singh made it 5-1 four minutes before the end.

It started well for the brown jerseys. Brinder Singh dribbled and played on the right and was eventually rewarded with a free kick. Øverby’s free kick was probably intended as a cross, but the ball sailed over the entire field, including Vålerenga goalkeeper Magnus Sjøeng, and into the farthest cross.

It started better for the Oslo team in the 2nd half, but Mjøndalen held on and scored another goal when Conteh stopped the VIF defense and scored 4-1.
