Kristiansund vs Sarpsborg
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Kristiansund Stadion (Kristiansund).
The excellent winning run of Kristiansund came to an end in their last league fixture. The defeat to Odds was more or less expected and took their losing tally to three matches. They are more interested in drawing games rather than winning them. That is why six of their 14 games were drawn while only five were wins.
Meanwhile, the away team is one of the most inconsistent teams this year. They have lost seven games already but are coming into this game with a win over Molde. Even though winning against the champions is a positive aspect, they have problems winning games away from home.
Kristiansund vs Sarpsborg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Kristiansund has a three-match winning streak against this opposition.
- They have not lost any of the last five head to head games.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in four of their six previous meetings.
- Four of those games also had goals at both ends of the field.
- At this ground, the hosts remain unbeaten in all three clashes with Sarpsborg.
Kristiansund vs Sarpsborg: Prediction
There is no doubt that there will be goals in this one. The home team has netted 27 times but the defence gave away 20 goals in return. Even though they are on a winning streak, this match could be drawn especially since the visitors have defeated Molde. Speaking of the visitors, they could trouble the home defence with their attacking power. If they could break one of the better defences in the competition they could do that against the Owls as well.
The majority of the home games of the Owls had more than 2.5 goals. The same scoreline can be seen in 11 of their 14 league games so far. Four of the recent matches on the road for Sarpsborg also had a similar trend in goals. So I am backing a high scoring game with both teams getting goals.
