Stromsgodset vs Haugesund Prediction and Match Preview

Stromsgodset vs FK Haugesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion (Drammen).

With just six more games to go in the Eliteserien, teams and coaches are getting prepared for their endgames. Though Stromsgodset had a strong showing last season and missed out on a Europa League spot by a whisker, this year it seems their fortunes have turned.

They now lie at a paltry twelfth position in a league of 16, compared to the fourth place finish last season. But whatever it may be, they always fared well against Haugesund, especially at the Marienlyst Stadion. Historically too, whenever these two sides have clashed, fortune usually sided with the home side.

With 14 goals this season, Marcus Pedersen is surely the player to fear in the Stromsgodset side. FK Haugesund doesn’t have a striker of Pedersen’s calibre to boast. Their top scorers are Ibrahim Shuaibu and Frederik Gytkjaer with six goals apiece.

The recent form of Haugesund is alarming with just one win in the last five matches. The rest four being losses, that too in a row. Haugesund also lost against Strømsgodset at Haugesund Stadion this season.

Haugesund will have to put in display a mesmerizing performance if they are to qualify for the Europa League playoffs. But considering their recent form and historical performance at the Marienlyst Stadion, it does not seem like a possibility.
