The hosts are in the penultimate position with only 12 points collected after the same number of games played.

They were defeated only in the first home match this season. Since then, they are on a five-game unbeaten run.

Aalesund

After 12 games Aalesund are in the fifth place with 18 points collected. They will fight for the Europa League spots this season with Brann, Sarpsborg 08 and probably Odd and Stabaek, so they need to get back on the track as soon as possible.
