Stromsgodset vs Sandefjord
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion (Drammen)
The Godset has been another inconsistent performer at the start of the season. The team that finished 11th last time around is currently inside the top ten but there is very little to separate them from their neighbors. They played well against the toppers in an away match that ended 3-2 in favor of Bodo/Glimt.
Sandefjord is the only newly-promoted side that is currently in the safe side of the table. But they have lost more than half of the matches and won only 4 of the 12 games. They are coming into this game on the back of a great result against Molde. They managed to defeat the reigning champions with a final score of 2-1. They would have to back it up with another strong performance which might take them into the top ten.
Stromsgodset vs Sandefjord: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The hosts have won four of the last five meetings with this opposition.
- The common final score in three of those games was 2-1.
- Godset has a four-match winning streak going on in head to head games at this ground.
- The last and only time Sandefjord won a game here was back in October 2003.
Stromsgodset vs Sandefjord: Prediction
The visiting side has lost five of their six matches on the road this season. Even though they picked up the win against Molde it was in front of their own crowd. On the contrary, three of the four wins that Godset picked up this season were at their home. Also, they are unbeaten against this opposition at this ground for over 17 years.
I think we can expect the visitors to create some chances and get a goal too. If they can score against Molde they could repeat it against an average squad like that of the hosts. They have scored in three back to back matches of the road even though they have lost all of them. So I am backing the hosts to win with both teams getting goals.
