Stromsgodset vs Stabaek
Date: Sunday, 18 July 2021
Kick-off 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion.
Stromsgodset and Stabaek will drop the curtain on the Matchday No 13 in Norwegian Eliteserien on Sunday evening at Marienlyst Stadion.
The 13th round of Eliteserien will be closed with a low-profile clash between two of the biggest relegation candidates ahead of the 2021 Eliteserien campaign.
While Stabaek confirmed the tag by clinching just six points in the opening ten games, Stromsgodset managed to win three of their inaugural eleven affairs to stay away from the red zone after the first third of the season.
The hosts will go into this match in higher spirits after holding the likes of Valerenga and Viking to back-to-back 1-1 draws in the last two rounds. They’ve generally played exceptionally well in front of the home crowd so far in the season, picking up three wins and two draws in five league games at Marienlyst Stadion.
It is a fantastic run if we know they’ve played the likes of Lillestrom, Rosenborg, and Valerenga in the process.
Stromsgodset are particularly dangerous in the final third as they have scored at least a goal in each of five home fixtures this term. They will have a nice chance to keep such a fine attacking form going here against Stabaek who have been anything but meticulous at the back so far in the season.
Stabaek took only two points from five league matches on the road this term, conceding as many as 13 goals along the way.

- Stabaek have been the more successful side in this matchup over the course of history.
- The visitors won 25 and lost 16 of 46 encounters with Stromsgodset so far.

Stromsgodset vs Stabaek Prediction
Stabaek boast the second-worst defensive record in the division. If we look at goals conceded per game, they are by far the weakest team in the competition. They have shipped at least two goals in each of the last seven Eliteserien outings and they will travel to Marienlyst Stadion off the back of six defeats in the last seven matches.
We thus see the hosts as clear favorites to maintain their exciting home form and we will back them to clinch another victory at the odds of 1.85.
