Stromsgodset is the bottom-most team in the table, and they are on the road. There are a very few numbers of settings that are more disadvantaged than this. They have recorded the least number of wins, lost the most, and conceded the most number of goals so far in the Eliteserien.
More troublingly, on the road, they are winless so far this season and is once again the worst away team in the whole competition.
Going on, while Lillestrom is no saint either, compared to their counterparts for the day, they are far better. True they are above the relegation line by just two points, but this match is a huge opportunity for them in that regards. Also, they have displayed a great sense of competitiveness in front of the home crowd, raising their chances for this tie even more.
