Stromsgodset vs Sarpsborg Predictions

Stromsgodset went into last Wednesday match at current Eliteserien champions Molde in high spirits after avoiding defeat for eight consecutive matches in all competitions. Seven of these games had resulted in victory for last season’s runners up, but they came away from Molde on the end of a 4-2 defeat.

This, along with their poor start to the Eliteserien campaign, puts them down in 5th position with 17 points from their opening ten matches. They are already eight points adrift of Rosenborg at the top, so they will need to get straight back to winning ways in order to mount a title challenge this season.

Sarpsborg 08 look like they’re going to put another middle of the road performance in this season. They are in good form at the moment, but a fairly slow start to the season leaves them down in 9th position in the Eliteserien. They are only two points adrift of 4th position though, so a win on Monday could send them rocketing up the table.

The visitors own unbeaten run came to an end last Sunday when they came away from Valarenga after a 3-0 loss, but they managed to jump back on the horse on Thursday with a 1-0 home victory. This makes is seven wins, one draw, and one defeat in their last eight outings.

Stromsgodset are still unbeaten at home this season, with each of their last four home matches ending in victory after a debut draw there this season. Sarpsborg 08 haven’t exactly been bad on the road, but they have lost two games this season and conceded seven goals in those two defeats.

I think the visitors will find it difficult against such an accomplished team away from home. They have also shown their defensive vulnerabilities on the road this season. When Stromsgodset and Sarpsborg’s home and away games are combined nine of their 13 games have seen at least three goals scored, so odds of 1/1 for a Stromsgodset Win and Over 2.5 Goals look good to me. I’m backing a 3-0 correct score prediction as well due to the comprehensive defeats that Sarpsborg have suffered this season.
