Haugesund Prediction- Can Haugesund close gap on top three?

Haugesund currently occupy 9th place in the Eliteserien and have dropped a couple of places on the league ladder following a 3-1 defeat away to Odd last time out.

However, all three points against visitors Valerenga on Sunday evening could see the hosts move up the table and close the gap on the top three clubs.

The hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches overall in the Norwegian top flight which was the loss at 2nd placed Odd, but other recent results have been encouraging.

Victories against Rosenborg and Mjondalen in 2-0 and 4-1 wins and both away from home along with points against Kristiansund and Brann should be a big boost for the hosts.

With just 1 defeat on home turf at their Haugesund Stadion so far this season, Haugesund have made themselves a hard team to beat in their own backyard.

Their overall home record stands at 1-4-1 7/5 so far this season, so you might want to keep the draw onside as far as possible in this one.

The bigger picture shows us that Haugesund have lost just 1 of their last 10 home matches in the Eliteserien.

Valerenga Prediction – Can Valerenga return to winning ways?

Although Valerenga still sit in 5th place on the Eliteserien league ladder, the visitors make their way over to Haugesund on the back of 3 matches without a win.

Back-to-back defeats to Lillestrom and Rosenborg, both in heavy 3-0 losses, along with just a point against Sarpsborg in a 1-1 draw have been disappointing returns recently.

These recent downturn in results have seen Valerenga lose ground on the top three clubs in the Eliteserien and they’re now 5 points adrift of 3rd placed Bodo/Glimt.

Much of Valerenga’s early success in this domestic top flight season has been down to their results at home where they’ve lost just once to date.

However, away from home has been a different story for the visitors as they’ve gained just 1 win so far this season on their travels.

A disappointing away record of 1-2-3 8/12 includes the one win at Ranheim in a 5-1 romp, but aside from that, Valerenga have struggled on the road.

Defeats at Kristiansund 2-0, Molde 4-1 and Rosenborg 3-0 show a soft underbelly to Valerenga’s game, especially away from home.


Key-Facts – Haugesund v Valerenga

  • Haugesund have lost just 1 of their last 10 home matches in the Eliteserien
  • Haugesund have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches overall
  • Valerenga have won just 1 of their 6 away matches so far this season


Betting Tips Verdict

Haugesund are unbeaten in their last 3 encounters at home against Valerenga and they should at least avoid defeat here this evening.
