Start vs Aalesund Prediction
It was a close encounter in the reverse fixture with both teams finding the back of the net. It was a narrow one-goal lead that gave all three points to Aalesund in that 3-2 entertainer.
The fellow relegates are likely to put up a show again and expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair with both teams on the scoresheet.
Start lost their last match in the league against Bodo with a 6-0 scoreline, but the defeat was against the table leaders this season. In the meantime, the bottom-dwellers will visit after a 1-3 loss at home against Haugesund last time out.
With their home grounds advantage, Start might get as a slight edge in the match. That’s why a draw no bet over the home team will be a suitable option.
