Date: Sunday, 16th June 2019

Venue: Sarpsborg Stadion (Sarpsborg).

Sarpsborg vs Odd Prediction

It’s the battle between the best and the worst in the Norwegian league, at the moment. Odds could take the pole spot by storm, and post some healthy lead at the top as well – courtesy, their two matches in hand. The team has been riding on some efficient defense and has conceded the least goals, both overall, and on the road.

They have conceded just six goals so far, while 14 of the total 16 teams in Eliteserien failed to keep it in single digits. Importantly, they won the last six games in a row, and eight of the last nine as well. On top of that, they managed to keep clean sheets in their last three match-ups, and on the road, they are on another streak of four straight wins. They managed a combined scoreline of 3-14, from their last four games on the road.

On the other hand, Sarpsborg lost four of their last five ties and the last two at home. They have also been winless against this team for the last two years, and at present, form-wise is the worst of the whole of 16 groups in contention.

Expect a routine win for the guests.
