Date: Sunday, 10th June 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Sparebanken Sor Arena (Kristiansand).
Start are going to host Stromsgodset in the 13th round of Norwegian Eliteserien on Sunday afternoon.
Home side have been promoted at the beginning of the season and they already have relegation troubles. They are the second worst team in the competition being three points away from the relegation playoffs place. Mick Priest’s side is the least efficient team in the league being able to score only nine times this season, while on the other hand their defence allowed the most goals. Start need to to improve urgently of they don’t want to slip down to the second tier again.
Stromsgodset are one of the biggest underachievers this season as they are just two points above the red zone. They booked only three victories so far and are already far from challenging the spots in European cups. Although Marcus Pedersen and the lads haven’t been too bad in the front, their defensive work has been simply poor. However, the visitors managed to break their winless run by beating Sandefjord in the previous round.
Start vs Stromsgodset: Head-to-head
Start haven’t celebrated a win against this opponent since 2011 and since then they lost seven times in a row, while the last two games ended with a draw. Their clashes are usually very efficient and the crowd is able to see goals in both nets.
Start vs Stromsgodset: Predictions
Both sides are in similar form and this one is going to be tight clash. The visitors are a bit closer to the victory, however Start might remain undefeated third time in a row since Stromsgodset picked up just a point from five away matches this season.
We are going to follow the tradition of their clashes and we believe this one is also going to be pretty efficient one. We should be definitely able to see at least a goal in each net as that was the case in the last three occasions.
