Stabaek vs Lillestrom
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 1st April 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Nadderud Stadion (Bekkestua).
Stabaek is lucky to have a place in the Eliteserien this season. They had to deal with the relegation playoffs last time, and for sure the team will not want that fate this time around. They have been allotted a home game for the beginner, and a chance to begin on the right note has improved considerably with this setting.
Lillestrom finished higher in the league table in the last edition of this tournament and has performed well against this opponent in recent h2h games. But the fact that they are on the road might act as a demotivating factor. Despite finding the back of the net consistently in away games, the team has been unable to post good results.

Stabaek vs Lillestrom Prediction
Results aside, these two teams have always produced goal-fests on a consistent basis. Be it at home, or on the road for either, this peculiar trait has been judiciously followed for the last 20 years.
Point of fact, the last seven straight h2h games had goals from either squad. And so did 11 of the last 14 at this venue. Going on, 17 of the last 21 overall encounters had over 2.5 goals, while 11 of the last 13 at this venue had the same stat as well.
Moreover, after the disappointing finish of last season for either, both will want to begin on the right note this time. Expect them to go hard after each other, and try and get on top of things. A goal-fest, like always, is in order for the fans.
