Sogndal vs Aalesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Fosshaugane Campus.
Aalesund will be looking to build on the impressive attacking display from last Sunday when they put five past Odd to overtake Molde at the fourth position of Eliteserien standings.
The Matchday No 15 will see the Tongotroyene travelling to Fosshaugane Campus for the clash with the struggling Sogndal side.
The hosts failed to find the back of the net in last two league outings. The relegation battle is reality for Eirik Bakke whose team just lacks the consistency at the back to stay competitive against the top half outfits in Norway.
Sogndal suffered a convincing 3-0 defeat to Rosenborg last Sunday and they will have a very tough task to bounce back and fix the impression this Saturday against the red-hot Aalesund.
Trond Fredriksen can be thrilled with the job he has done so far in the season. Tangotroyene have the chance to challenge the third-placed Sarspborg 98 with the potential victory over Sogndal.
Aalesund have been especially impressive on the road where they are unbeaten in last seven games in all competitions.
Mostafa Abdellaoue is the main star. The Norwegian striker contributed to the thumping of Odd with a goal which took his league tally to eight and he will be our top option for the anytime scorer pick at the odds of 13/10.
