Kristiansund vs Start Prediction & Match Preview

Kristiansund vs Start
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Kristiansund Stadion.

The home team is currently enjoying life in the Eliteserien. They have not lost any of their last four matches in the league which includes two back to back wins. The Owls also has a strong attacking unit which has scored third highest after the top two in the table. They would be aiming for a third consecutive win which would possibly reduce the gap with the top.

Just like other sides that were promoted this year, Start is struggling to cope up with this level of competition. After just 12 rounds completed they are already in the bottom three. They have only one win and they shared points in half of their games. They lost the most recent fixture against Molde away from home with a final score of 5-0.

Kristiansund vs Start: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • In the two competitive games between them, Start remains unbeaten (W1, D1).
  • Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in both those games across all venues.
  • The only head to head game at this ground ended as a draw with both sides scoring a goal each.
  • The away team is on a six-match winless run in league matches away from home.
  • The Owls are on a four-match unbeaten run in this season.

Kristiansund vs Start: Prediction

The home team has only met this opposition twice in all competitions. But they were unable to win in both games. But currently, the visitors are on a poor run of form, with winless streak going on especially in matches on the road. On the other hand, the Owls have won both the latest league matches. So I think we can expect the home team to pick up their first win over the newbie, this Sunday.

Even though Start is at the wrong end of the table they have netted a goal per game on average. But in six away matches they have scored only five goals while conceded 13 goals in return. Similarly, the home side has given away goals in the last two matches which they have won against teams like Viking and Sandefjord. I do not see that repeating on Sunday against this opposition. So I am backing the home team to win with only one team scoring.
