Stromsgodset produced a spectacular showing on Saturday when they stormed past Valerenga 1-4 away at Intility Arena in Oslo. Marcus Pedersen was the one who inspired the victory by netting a brace. It was his fourth goal in three appearances of the season. The team led by Tor-Ole Skullerud will thus head into the game with Tromso high on confidence looking to build on the superb attacking showing from the previous round.
Stromsgodset are yet to suffer a defeat in the new season after clinching back-to-back draws with Stabaek and Brann on the opening two days. They will have a nice chance to keep the good form going on Wednesday given they are up against Tromso who have been very easy to break down at the start of the campaign.
Nonetheless, the hosts will also enter the game high on confidence after destroying Ranheim 4-0 at the weekend. It was the first home match of the season for Simo Valakari’s men.
Tromso have previously conceded six goals in two losses to Start and Molde. The Finnish manager will face hard times finding the way to stop the red-hot Marcus Pedersen. Nonetheless, the hosts have a predator on their own in Gjermund Asen. The Norwegian striker scored a brace in the mentioned 4-0 drubbing of Ranheim on the weekend.
