Aalesund vs Sarpsborg Prediction & Match Preview

Aalesund vs Sarpsborg
Norway Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Color Line Stadion.

The biggest disappointment of Norway Eliteserien season 2020 is team Aalesund. Even though we are only half way in, they already have minimal chances to avoid relegation after winning only seven points from 16 games. Besides that, this squad is also holding the worst goal difference record in the league of -26! Can they introduce some major changes and catch Sarpsborg 08 off guard this Sunday? Bookies certainly don’t think so.

Sarpsborg are also having poor results in the last couple of weeks, having lost three out of the last four encounters. Still, they are in much better position than hosts with seventeen points.

Aalesund vs Sarpsborg Head-to-head

There were 18 duels between these two teams in the past and the score is tied at 7-7 when it comes to victories.

It is definitely worth adding that Sarpsborg 08 are dominating the opponent in the last couple of years. For example, they won the first meeting this season 4-0 FT at home and both of the games in the previous campaign with total goal difference of 4-1.

Six out of the last eight head to head matches between Aalesund and Sarpsborg ended either Over 2.5 FT or with both teams scoring at least once.

Aalesund vs Sarpsborg Prediction

Aalesund’s form has been horrendous in the last six weeks. The team suffered four losses in five matches with the exception of 2-2 draw against Viking, conceding 13 goals in process. It’s quite shocking to see they concede almost three goals per match in season 2020.

Good news for home fans is that Sarpsborg 08 are the second worst visiting team in the league. They had seven trips this season, five of which ended as defeats while winning only one.

Both sides are playing awful football at the moment and have terrible stats when it comes to defending. Over 2.5 FT goals seem like the most logical choice. As for the alternative bet, we recommend small stake bet on the draw.
