Stabaek vs Tromso
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 17 June 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Nadderud Stadion (Bekkestua).
The two bottom-most teams lock horns to determine who among them the weakest contender in the Eliteserien is. Both are frontrunners to be relegated at the end of the season, as per the performances till the tenth match-day.
Tromso takes the dead-last position and has posted just seven points from their ten games so far. But there’s a huge asterisk next to their name in the table. Just the last day, they became one of the very few teams to inflict a defeat upon the best in Norway, Molde.
The toppers had a nightmare of a day on the road against Tromso, as they conceded in the first minute itself. Despite trying their best to hit back, Molde could not, and had to end the first half trailing 0-1.
At the start of the second half, the hosts scored once again, which was followed by a red card for them. The bizarre events did not stop there, as the favorites missed the subsequent penalty. Later, right at the end of the injury time, they did score a goal, but the game was already in the home team’s hands then.
Coming to Stabaek, they do have two games in hand, and the home advantage for this next tie. If they could perform at least satisfactorily well, the squad would be able to put some distance between themselves and the relegation line.
The three-match losing streak that the team is on is definitely bothering the fans, as well as the players. They hope the streak could be put to the bed as they host these unpredictable opponents.

Stabaek vs Tromso Prediction
Tromso should be in the highest of spirits, after their emphatic win against the best team in the league. The squad fought like hell to deliver a shock loss, even after going a man down and conceding a penalty. They will surely be trying to keep the momentum going and would be hoping it’d help them to climb out of the relegation pit.
They also won the last two games and scored two or more goals in both of them. The team also was unbeaten in three of their last five away fixtures and was victorious in the last.
Stabaek, meanwhile, lost four of their last five games, and the last two at home. In the league, they are on a three-game losing streak. Importantly, Tromso recorded eight of the last twelve h2h wins and is on a scoring streak of ten games at this ground.
As things stand, expect the visitors to come out strong, and avoid a loss at the least.
Regarding goals, consider that Stabaek has the home advantage and that their counterparts have conceded the second-most number of times in the competition. Also, they failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 18 fixtures on the trot, and in their last ten on the road. By all means, expect goals from both sides of the stadium this Tuesday.
