Stabaek vs Sarpsborg
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 15 July 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Nadderud Stadion (Bekkestua).
Stabaek is running scared of the relegation line. The team is hanging by a thread over the cut-off line with a surplus of a single point. Their main problem has been the offense that has failed to turn up in important moments.
Considering they have the home advantage for this fixture, fans hope for a favorable result. Especially since their visitors are fellow relegation-battlers, and someone who has not posted a single victory on the road yet.

Stabaek vs Sarpsborg Prediction
The one major factor that would swing the tie in the hosts’ favor is the fact that Sarpsborg is winless this league season on the road. Along with the worst of the lot, Stromsgodset, they remain the only two squads to yet taste an away victory in the whole competition.
Also, they are winless in their last four overall games, and in eight of their last ten. They also lost six of these and had a four-game losing run in its midst.
Meanwhile, Stabaek had a nine-tie unbeaten streak in front of the home crowd, and despite some minor stumbles, will be strong this week, as they sense a rare opportunity to play the favorites.
As things stand, count on the home team to avoid a loss, and extend the winless run of the guests by one more tie. Regarding goals, keep in mind that the visitors have found the back of the net in 16 of their last 20 road games, while Satabek failed to keep a clean sheet in 18 of their last 21 home fixtures.
With these in mind, back the BTTS for good returns.
