Lillestrom vs Tromso
Date: Monday, 24 September 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Arasen Stadion (Kjeller).
Lillestrom have seen a struggling September so far and they host Tromso for their Matchday 23 clash on Monday evening sitting in the relegation zone, with two consecutive losses behind them. They have failed to find the net both in their narrow home loss to Valerenga and the more convincing defeat at Start, which could have Jorgen Lennartsson very worried.
Tromso have on the other hand seen a contrasting spell of form and they’ve only ended a five-game losing streak, as they beat Stromsgodset in a thriller 2-4 contest at Marienlyst Stadion and held Stabaek to a goalless draw at home.
Gutan now want to build on their mid-table spot against the struggling rivals but they have struggled to score numbers of goals on the road, with the exception of their trip to Stromsgodset – which was one of the bright spots along the way. We thus feel we’re in for a very narrow contest and both sides will have to outdo themselves to secure all three points at Arasen Stadion.
Lillestrom vs Tromso: Head-to-head
Lillestrom have earned four wins in the sides last five matchups, including a 1-2 win in Tromso earlier this year.
Tromso have earned just five wins in 24 trips to this ground so far.
We have seen goals on both ends in three of the last four head-to-head clashes too, with quite some thrillers along the way.
Lillestrom vs Tromso: Prediction
We will now back Tromso to capitalize on the rivals’ woes and snatch an important point at Arasen Stadion, going for it at 3.60. Lillestrom haven’t earned a win at this ground since May and we do believe this will prove costly on the day as well.
With that in mind, we feel both sides’ struggles in the attacking third will show on the day too and we should be in for a very narrow contest with few goals. We’ll thus also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 2.10, which would be only second occasion in five head-to-head matchups but still looks great value at the moment.
