Start vs Mjondalen
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 2 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Sparebanken Sør Arena (Kristianstad).
Start winless streak in the campaign has continued to the 11th game after their loss on the road to Aalesund last time out in the schedule. Their only comfort lies in the three consecutive draws they had as a cushion to their fall in the league.
For a promoted side, they are struggling in the table, but their home matches have given them some hope as they have lost only two of the six clashes in that fixture.
Since the 1-3 win on the road against Aelesund at the start of July, Mjoendalen has lost all their clashes until now. It includes giving away two successive clean sheets in the last two matches.
Vegard Hansen’s worry will be in his team’s poor away form, averaging at just 1 goal per game in the campaign so far this season. They will visit after a 0-2 loss at home against Odd in their previous league clash.

Start vs Mjondalen Prediction
The idea of two teams close to the foot of the league table fighting for the three points clarifies that the game could go either way.
Having a successful run against the visitors at home previously in their h2h history gives the home team a slight edge. The double chance favoring Start with 1.40 will probably be the ideal call in the game.
As mentioned earlier in h2h points, all clashes held here have seen both teams score and this will not be any different considering their scoring average despite the results.
