Norway – Eliteserien

Relegation threat is looming over Vaalerenga as they remain with 1 win in 9 matches after the dramatic collapse at Stabaek. After rushing to a 2-0 lead by half-time, they conceded 4 goals to end up losing a match they were controlling.

Vaalerenga had now lost 5 of their last 7 games and picked up four points via a win and a draw.

However, Valerenga’s home record this season is quite decent with only 2 defeats happening in the 11 matches so far. But, they could do better as the remaining 9 is split across 5 wins and 4 draws.

FK Haugesund are one of the teams competing for a top three finish this season. They are sitting at 5th in the table at a 6 point gap with second placed Sarpsborg 08.

Haugesund are coming on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat away at Odd BK. The defeat put an end to their 5 match winning run which saw 3 wins and 2 draws.

Away from home, Haugesund had struggled at times this season. They managed 5 wins from their 12 road games so far, but 6 defeats in the period show that this team can be trusted with any degree of confidence while playing outside their home ground.

Vaalerenga vs Haugesund: Head-to-head

Haugesund are unbeaten in the last three matches against Vaalerenga with 2 wins and 1 draw.

The reverse leg of the corresponding fixture was an absolute thriller which finally went in the way of Haugesund on a 4-3 margin.

Vaalerenga vs Haugesund: Prediction

Despite struggling at the bottom half of the table, Vaalerenga are a quality side and they have a good account of themselves while playing at home. Meanwhile, Haugesund have ample problem in replicating their home performance in away games. So, I do believe the hosts are most likely to salvage at least a point from this game.
