Tromso vs Haugesund Match Preview and Predictions

Tromso vs Haugesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Alfheim Stadion, Tromso.

Norwegian Eliteserien is back in action this weekend after a one-month summer break. Tromso and Haugesund, who both look to have improved from last season displays, are set to lock horns on Sunday afternoon at Alfheim Stadion.

The hosts could not make it three wins on the bounce in the finish of the first part of the season as they fell 2-1 to Rosenborg in early-July.

Nonetheless, their Finnish head coach Simo Valakari has reasons to be thrilled with his men’s attacking showings of late.

Tromso notched two or more goals in four straight games across competitions before the mentioned defeat to the reigning champions away from home.

Talented youngster Runar Espejord was the main catalyst for the mentioned rise in form. He netted four goals in last four appearances for Tromso making it six in this term of Eliteserien.

Tromso vs Haugesund: Head-to-head

  • Tromso were super dominant in H2H fixtures against Haugesund at Alfheim Stadion.
  • They won 10 and drew 1 of 11 home matches against the Arabs.
  • Overall, Tromso won 13 and lost only 4 of 23 H2H meetings.
  • Only two of last seven head to head outings brought three or more goals.

Tromso vs Haugesund: Prediction

It seems the time has come for a high-scoring thriller to be seen in the H2H clash between these two sides.

Haugesund played super attractive attacking football before the summer interval and each of last five games they featured ended with three or more goals scored and both teams on the scoresheet.

They played table-toppers Brann in the mid-season friendly test seven days ago, winning 3-1 in front of the home crowd.

We have to take the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet at the 2.00 odds based on everything written above.

Tromso are slight favourites after winning three consecutive matches on the home patch. If we also consider their super impressive H2H record with Haugesund, the home win is a perfect alternative bet at the 1.95 odds.
