Stromsgodset vs Kristiansund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 9th July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion.
Stromsgodset have been struggling a lot to find their top shape in this term of Eliteserien.
They are set to host the league’s newcomers Kristiansund in a very important match of the 16th round this Sunday at Marienlyst Stadion.
Tor-Olle Skullerud just can’t seem to find the solution for his defensive line which does not appear to be able of keeping a clean sheet.
The hosts are on a run of three losses and two draws in last five games. The streak caused the drop to the 14th position in the standings.
Staying safe will thus require a serious turnaround in form in the second part of the season.
The latest of the failures came last weekend when the team suffered a 2-0 defeat to Lillestrom on the road.
KBK were off to a shaky start to their first ever season in the elite, but they improved in form with each new week.
Christian Michelsen’s men are now undefeated in last three league matches which allowed them to escape the danger area for the first time since the start of the competition.
Jean Mendy and Benjamin Stokke have been enjoying an excellent spell of form as the duo bagged as many as 13 goals so far in the season.
Mendy has been especially inspired lately as he notched seven goals in last seven games and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer at 3/1 odds.
Stromsgodset vs Kristiansund: Head to head
Kristiansund came out victorious from the lone previous head to head meeting played in late April this year.
Jean Alassane Mendy and Daouda Bamba were on target in a comfortable 2-0 win for KBK.
Stromsgodset vs Kristiansund: Prediction
The bookmakers have seriously underestimated the league’s newcomers here. We are going to take the maximum advantage of it and back Kristiansund to win the match at the odds of 5/1 as the top betting option.
