Tip Reasoning

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Jerv’s eight league games this term.
  • The hosts have only scored four goals in the Eliteserien this season.
  • Jerv’s four home league games to date have contained a total of five goals.
  • Sarpsborg may not be worth backing after a run of three consecutive defeats.

Out-of-form sides meet

Jerv’s dreadful start to the Eliteserien season sees them sit 15th in the 16-team division, having failed to win in five games since winning two of their opening three games, suffering three consecutive defeats ahead of their meeting with Sarpsborg. However, the visitors are on a three-game winless streak of their own, and a cagey contest could be in prospect in Grimstad.

The hosts have scored just four goals in what has been a miserable league season to date, failing to score more than once in any game and netting just twice in their last five after initially making a promising start. Arne Sandsto’s team have seen under 2.5 goals scored in five of their eight league games, and in four of their last six, as well as averaging the second-fewest shots per game in the division and averaging just 41 per cent of the ball in Eliteserien games.

Sarpsborg, however, also enter this clash in dire form after Molde condemned them to a third consecutive defeat on Thursday. Stefan Billborn’s team have seen the goals dry up after a strong start to the campaign, finding the net just three times in their last four outings after scoring nine goals in their first four, and their poor run could make for a tense affair on Sunday.

Low-scoring affair looks likely

Given the poor form of both sides, with each requiring a win to get their respective seasons back on track after a run of defeats, a cagey match looks likely. Considering the horrendous attacking return of the hosts, under 2.5 goals looks a strong play.

Meanwhile, Sarpsborg have actually claimed two wins from their three away trips so far this season, making a 1-0 away win a potentially strong correct score prediction.
