Lillestrom vs Haugesund Preview and Prediction

Lillestrom vs Haugesund Norwegian Eliteserien 2018 by LeagueLane

Lillestrom vs Haugesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 19 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Arasen Stadion (Kjeller).

Haugesund have been in great shape lately and they’ve picked it up where they left it off after the break too, narrowly beating Tromso and Valerenga and connecting a four-game winning streak. They now travel to Kjeller for their Matchday 19 clash at Lillestroem and we feel they’re in top shape as Eirik Horneland’s men look for an upset at Arasen Stadion.

Araberne have been conceding goals on the regular too and the clean sheet they’ve kept against Valerenga was their only first in seven outings, which could be more worrying. However, they’ve been great in the attacking third and the travelling fans will hope they can show it off once again!

Lillestroem, on the other hand, struggle for points and consequently sit just above the relegation zone after 18 games played. They have held Molde to a thriller 2-2 draw but saw yet another disappointing trip and a 2-0 loss at Sarpsborg more recently, where Jorgen Lennartsson obviously struggles to find a cure for their woes at the back.

Lillestrom vs Haugesund: Head-to-head

  • The sides have shared the spoils in both of their last two head-to-head clashes over the past year.
  • Lillestroem have last beaten the rivals back in October 2015, bagging a 2-0 win in front of the home crowd.
  • Haugesund have bagged the only win in the last five matchups, causing a 0-2 upset here in April 2017.

Lillestrom vs Haugesund: Prediction

We do feel we’re in for another very narrow occasion on the day and we do see Haugesund building on their unbeaten streak in head-to-head clashes, as we stick our necks out for another Draw between the sides at 3.30!

We don’t see them completely shutting down the opponents, though, and they should have to find the net to snatch points – as we feel we’re in for goals on both ends and go for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.57. We’ve seen such occasions in four of their last five matchups and this does shape to be a banker bet on the day as well.
