Sarpsborg are 5th in the league, but they could drop as low as 9th depending upon the results of Sunday’s round of fixtures. This is an alternate indication of how tight things are in the top half of the table. The team managed by Geir Bakke had a tough outing last week, yet managed a narrow 1-0 win at Sandefjord to register their third win on the bounce. The team is unbeaten in the last five games as well, so they are definitely a team in good spirits and the advantage is doubled with this game on Monday played at their home turf.

Stabaek are yet to find their feet in this campaign and are 12th in the table after managing a humble 10 points from their 11 games so far.

They did manage to break the streak of three defeats last week with a welcome 2-1 home win against Odd BK, but one should keep high hopes of this team as they are yet to register a win on the road this season (2 draws and 4 losses). Also, their last three away games resulted in defeats without troubling the scorers.

Sarpsborg vs Stabaek: Head-to-head

Their last h2h meeting was at this same venue and the teams shared the spoils with the scores reading 2-2 at full-time. Stabaek were victorious in the reverse leg earlier by a comfortable 3-0 margin.

Overall, 10 league meetings between the two since 2011, Stabaek have a brilliant record after picking 4 wins and 5 draws from those, losing just once.

Four of their last 5 h2h meetings at Sarpsborg’s home ground are scored draws, with the remaining 1 game ending in a 1-0 away win.

Sarpsborg vs Stabaek Predictions

The form analysis clearly favors the hosts as they are in a confident mood after winning three league games on the bounce. They only team to beat Sarpsborg at home this season is the current league leader Brann.

Stabaek are win-less on the road this season and are currently struggling to find the back, yet conceding at the other end in plenty. Thus, a home win has to be the first pick for this game.

Alternatively, you can back Sarpsborg to score at least twice here since 8 of their last 13 home games in the league saw the same.
