Sarpsborg Prediction – Can Sarpsborg break drought?

It’s been 7 league matches without a win now for Monday night’s hosts, Sarpsborg, as they prepare for their Monday night clash against high-flying Bodo/Glimt at their Sarpsborg Stadion, and they desperately need to end this drought tonight.

Sarpsborg find themselves 4 points adrift of fourth from bottom club, Ranheim, and safety but recent results suggest they’ll struggle against visitors Bodo/Glimt as their last league win was recorded in a 2-0 home win against Odd back in mid-June.

Since then, Sarpsborg have drawn 4 and lost 3 of their subsequent 7 matches in the Norwegian top flight, but goals have featured nonetheless; 6 of these last 7 matches have resulted in both teams scoring, and Sarpsborg must get a result of any kind on Monday night.

The hosts posses a reasonable looking home record (for a team that’s sitting second from bottom) with stats of 2-4-2 9/9 with 5 of Sarpsborg’s 8 home matches resulting in both teams scoring. Forward, Larsen (4 goals) looks the most likely to notch for the hosts in this clash.

Bodo/Glimt Prediction – Can Bodo/Glimt pick up fifth win on trot?

If they manage to do so, Bodo/Glimt will move top of the Eliteserien and hold a 2-point margin over current league leaders, Molde, so there’s plenty of incentive for the visitors to go all out for the 3 points in this encounter.

Bodo/Glimt bring a 4-match winning streak into Monday night’s match at the Sarpsborg Stadion having secured important wins against Ranheim 5-1, Stromsgodset 3-1, Viking 2-1 and Kristiansund 2-1.

As you can see, despite sitting in 2nd place and in good form, Bodo/Glimt are still conceding goals but luckily for them, the visitors are scoring more than they’re conceding at the moment. However, this wasn’t the case in a recent thrashing at the hands of Valerenga at the Intility Arena in Oslo as Bodo/Glimt were handed a heavy 6-0 loss.

An overall away record of 5-1-2 17/19 is a reasonable return so far this season though, and Bodo/Glimt have won 4 of their last 5 matches away from home in recent weeks. There is an inconsistent streak though in the visitors, so the goals market looks appealing again in this situation – 6 of Bodo/Glimt’s 8 away matches have resulted in both teams scoring.
