Stromsgodset vs Sandefjord Preview and Predictions

Stromsgodset vs Sandefjord
Norway Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion (Drammen).

Sandefjord have been in a very poor form recently and they travel to Drammen for their Matchday 12 clash on Sunday as Eliteserien strugglers with just five points earned in 11 outings. They look to end a seven-game losing streak at Marienlyst Stadion as well, hoping to capitalize on the rivals’ respective woes and make a step towards an escape from the relegation zone.

Stroemsgodset have indeed seen their share of recent troubles, as they come into the match after a three-game losing streak of their own, beaten by top 3 chasers Sarpsborg 08 at home as well as Molde and Kristiansund on the road. They have been a much tougher side to beat at this ground, though, and they will hope to show off such a character on the day too.

Both sides have struggled to regularly score goals and this surely looks as one of the prime reasons they sit in the bottom part of the table, but we do feel they’re eager to bounce back in what shapes a crucial battle for points in their ambitions to reach the mid-table.

  • Stromsgodset have bagged nine wins in their last ten head-to-head matchups, with just one draw also on the record.

Stromsgodset vs Sandefjord: Prediction

The visitors have struggled to score goals and haven’t made it on the score sheet since April, so we do hope this will come as another one-sided clash as we go for a NO on Both teams to score at 1.95. Stromsgodset have kept just one clean sheet in four home outings but this does come off as a perfect chance for the second.
