Stabaek vs Sandefjord
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Nadderud Stadion.
The league’s newcomers Sandefjord will come into the game in high spirits having demolished Tromso 3-0 on the home patch last weekend.
However, the visitors won’t have an easy task to repeat such a dominant display in the Matchday No 18 when they are set to travel to Nadderud Stadion to play the in-form Stabaek side on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts barely managed to save the elite class status last year, but they will be far from the relegation scrap in the new campaign.
De Blaa currently hold the sky-high sixth position in the standings and they have also been enjoying a hot run of form over the last couple of weeks.
The hosts bagged two goals in each of their last three league outings which saw them snatching wins over Sandefjord and Brann and playing a 2.2 draw with Lillestrom.
The visitors managed to successfully recover from a painful 5-1 defeat to the reigning champions and the current Eliteserien leaders Rosenborg.
Lars Bohinen’s side bagged three goals past the relegation threatened Tromso as Erik Mjelde, Joakim Solberg and Hakon Lorentzen got their names to the scoreline.
Stabaek vs Sandefjord: Head to head
Stabaek have been more than dominant in the history of head to head meetings with Sandefjord.
De Blaa won each of the last eight H2H ties with Sandefjord including the one played a month ago at Komplett Arena when Kassi and Omoiujanfo bagged goals for Stabaek.
Stabaek vs Sandefjord: Prediction
The hosts are 4/6 to maintain the fine form and clinch yet another win which is a fair price considering the circumstances.
We expect to witness a high-scoring affair between two of the weakest defensive sides in the competition.
