Stromsgodset vs Stabaek
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion (Drammen).
Both teams are at the extreme end of the table, and deep in the relegation zone. By virtue of their respective league standings alone, the game is of much importance for them, as a win would propel the victor probably outside of the exit-mix, while the losing party will be pushed deeper into the abyss.
Stromsgodset needs this win more. They have taken part in an extra tie and still lags behind by two points. Opponents Stabaek, meanwhile, have for the moment entered a period of respite. They avoid losses in both their last two games, and either clash was against teams considerably much higher in the table.
Their offense will have to step up though, as so far the squad can boast of just seven goals from their eleven league battles.
On the road, embarrassingly, the side could register just a single goal in return for ten conceded goals.

Stromsgodset vs Stabaek Prediction
Stabaek has been nothing but terrible on the road this season. They lost all of their attempts on the road except for one and could register just a single goal in the process. The team also conceded ten in return for this one scored goal.
Going on, the hosts of this tie were unbeaten in nine of their last fourteen appearances at home and scored two or more goals in ten of their last fifteen. In the same note, Stabaek failed to keep a clean sheet in eight of their last nine games on the road and let in five in their last such match alone.
Moreover, Stromsgodset found the back of the net against this opponent in 16 of their last 17 clashes and scored twice or more in five of their last seven attempts.
In addition, their counterparts could register just seven goals in total all through their league campaign, which is the lowest return of all the sides in contention.
Despite their bottom-most positioning, the hosts should make this game a memorable one, and at the very least, avoid a loss.
