Lillestrom vs Stromsgodset
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Arasen Stadion.
Lillestrom ended their hot run of form last weekend when they suffered a 3-1defat to Valerenga on the road, but they will have a nice chance to bounce back instantly this Saturday when they are set to open the Matchday No 15 in Eliteserien with the home clash against the struggling Stromsgodset side.
Arne Erlandsen’s men were off to a horrendous start to the new Eliteserien campaign but they managed to find the right shape by clinching five consecutive wins in all competitions.
Kanarifuglene will be hoping to build on this fine form and snatch their third home win on the bounce after beating the likes of Tromso and Viking at Arasen Stadion.
Erling Knudtzon, who bagged five goals in last four games, is our top pick for the anytime goalscorer market.
The Norwegian striker will have plenty of room to deliver in the final third given the fact the visitors revealed plenty of holes at the back over the last couple of weeks.
Stromsgodset are yet to claim their first victory on the road where they suffered four losses and three defeats in seven fixtures so far in the season.
Lillestrom vs Stromsgodset: Head to head
The two sides are all levelled at 16 wins each ahead of their 39th head to head meeting.
Godset was victorious from their pre-season friendly as they picked up a 2-0 win in early March prior to the start of the new Eliteserien campaign.
