Ham-Kam vs Stromsgodset
Date: 23 April 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Briskeby Arena (Hamar).
HamKam and Stromsgodset were on the wrong end of high-scoring thrillers in the second round of the 2023 Eliteserien campaign.
The hosts revealed plenty of defensive holes in the 3-2 defeat at Haugesund seven days ago, while Stromsgodset shipped two late goals to drop the lead and eventually lose 4-3 away at Lillestrom.
The two outfits who finished right next to each other in the bottom half of the standings last season are now about to lock horns in the Matchday No 3 on Sunday afternoon at Briskeby Arena.
This is the place where HamKam offered a great display on the opening day of the campaign, beating Sandefjord 2-0 two weeks ago.
It was an important victory for the team led by Danish manager Jakob Michelsen as Sandefjord should be their main rivals in the battle for avoiding relegation this year.
Stromsgodset are also predicted to be down in the relegation scrap despite solid efforts in the inaugural two matches against Aalesund and Lillestrom.
The visitors are the only team in the league to have made a managerial change before the start of the season as Jorgen Isnes took over Bjorn Petter Ingebretsen and Hakon Wibe-Lund on the bench this spring.
We have to say that Sandefjord’s offensive line functioned great in preseason as well since the team bagged at least two goals in each of the final three checks.
