Tromso vs Haugesund:
Date: Saturday, 9 July 2016
Kick-off: 17:00 UK Time
Venue: Alfheim Stadion (Tromso).
Tromso welcome FK Haugesund at Alfheim Stadion on Saturday evening hoping to extend their game to 2-game winning streak after a poor start to the season.
Tromso have had a shambolic season so far as they have managed just 16 points from the 14 league games played this season, they have won 4 games, drawn 4 games and lost 6. Their home record is not so good, they have won 2 of their 6 home games this season drawn 1 and lost 3. They will be hoping to continue from where they left off in their last game after beating Lillestrom 4-2 on the road last week.
Meanwhile Fk Haugesund have been having a fluctuating form since the beginning of the season but they are better than their host, their last week win at home against bottom placed team Start made it their 7th win this season from the 14 games played, they have lost 4 and drawn 3. Haugeland’s away for is a thing of worry, as they have encountered their 4 defeats this season on the road.
Tromso vs Haugesund: Predicted Line-ups

Tromso vs Haugesund: Head- to-Head
The host have a great record against FK Haugesund, they have lost just once in their previous 18 meetings against Haugesund, they have won 12 and drawn 5 times. Also the host have kept 8 clean sheets in their previous games against Haugesund and have scored at least 2 goals in 10 of the 18 games. They hope to keep their dominance over Haugesund with a win in this game.
Tromso vs Haugesund: Prediction
Tromsoe have had a bad start this season which have put them behind their visitors who are not so good but are far better than them. The host have a good record against Haugesund which is a boost to them and they will fight hard to keep the record going.
I predict a hard fought win for the home side.
1. Double Chance: Tromso/Draw
2. Half time draw
3. Under 2.5 goals
