Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion, Drammen.
Following the excellent display against Valerenga, Stromsgodset will face Lillestrom in Drammen.
The home team played a high-tempo match with Valerenga where only two goals were seen despite both teams could score at least one goal more. The former champions are playing far below the expectation. They are in the 12th position with 22 points earned, only four points away from the danger zone.
They remain unbeaten in the last three games and their form is finally seeing an upward trend. A victory over Lillestrom would certainly confirm it, but it won’t be simple a task as Lillestrom are a tricky visitor.
The visitors are sitting two places ahead Stromsgodset with only one point more collected. Lillestrom are on a three-game drawing streak and extending their run in Drammen would be satisfying. Their goal is to achieve the survival as soon as possible, and preserving the lead over the direct rival could be considered as a small victory.
The last four Lillestrom’s away matches were alike roller-coaster ride – there were more than 3.5 goals in each with both teams shaking the net at least once.
Melgalvis is out for the visitors which can be a significant blow.
