Tromso vs Sarpsborg
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Alfheim Stadion (Tromsø).
The hosts are currently on a two-match winning streak, having recorded narrow wins against both eight placed Rosenborg and table toppers Molde in their recent clashes on home soil. The squad will be looking to bag a possible third successive victory when they welcome visitors Sarpsborg to the Alfheim Stadion.
The home side managed a 1-0 win over Rosenborg in their last match and finished the game with five shots on target out of their ten attempts at goal. Although their opponents did enjoy slightly better time on the ball, the hosts did a very good job in thwarting them from using it to their advantage.
The visitors come into the clash on Friday on the back of a frustrating 1-1 draw against Valerenga, despite taking the initial lead in that game. The team also gave away the majority share of possession and managed just eight attempts at goal, out of which not more than three were on target.
Both the sides are separated by a single point in the table, with the home side edging above the visitors at twelfth. Anything short of a win will not work for the away side, who could drop to the relegation zone if they succumb to a defeat on Friday.

Tromso vs Sarpsborg Prediction
The clash between the two sides is likely to see the home side walk away with the win and the three points at the end of the ninety minutes.
Although the hosts have succumbed to a defeat in three of their last five home games, the squad have been showing positive signs of a resurgence by clinching the win in the last two. Both the wins came against sides that were from the top ten, which certainly makes the victory all the more resounding.
The visitors have just one win in their last five trips on the road and have lost without scoring a single goal on two occasions.
Their unconvincing form is unlikely to get them across the ninety minutes with a goal to their name, late alone the win. We can certainly bet on a low scoring clash, with the victory swinging in favor of the hosts at the end of ninety minutes.
