Sarpsborg 08

The hosts are sitting in the second place with 42 points collected. With Rosenborg 12 points ahead it is safe to say that the championship dreams are over. They will fight for the remaining UEFA spots with Molde, Brann, and maybe Haugesund.

Sarsborg 08 are showing excellent performances on the home turf as they were beaten only once while winning seven matches and drawing three. They scored 24 goals in the process while conceding only 11 so it is safe to say they are a tough nut to crack on the home turf.


Stabaek are quite inconsistent recently with two victories and defeats apiece in the last five games. They are in the ninth position with 33 points collected and they have basically secured the survival, so the visitors will struggle to find the motivation for the upcoming duel.

Stabaek are winless in the last four games on the road and they have only won three away games this season.
