Sarpsborg Prediction- Can Sarpsborg lift themselves out of bottom three?

Sarpsborg sit third from bottom in the Norwegian top flight and currently occupy the relegation play-off spot prior to Monday night’s clash with Stromsgodset.

It’s been a tough and largely unfruitful campaign to date for Sarpsborg but their results have improved in recent times which will give them hope here.

Following a barren spell of 6 league matches without a win, which included 4 defeats, Sarpsborg recently upset the odds against Odd BK.

Defeats to Rosenborg, Kristiansund, Brann and Ranheim threatened to plunge Sarpsborg into the relegation zone but they bounced back in style.

No-one gave them a hope against high-flying 3rd placed Odd, but Sarpsborg registered a much needed 2-0 win to hand the hosts a vital three points.

The hosts then followed that remarkable result up with a point on the road away at Valerenga, holding their hosts to a 1-1 draw.

Overall form on home turf at their Sarpsborg Stadion has been up and down as their record of 2-2-2 6/6 indicates.

Recent history is also on Sarpsborg’s side as they’ve won 3 of the last 4 encounters against Stromsgodset.

Stromsgodset Prediction – Can Stromsgodset break their duck on the road?

A miserable sequence of three defeats on the trot have left Stromsgodset bottom of the pile in the Norwegian top flight and 3 points from safety.

Defeats to Ranheim, Bodo/Glimt and Molde – the latter a heavy 4-0 loss at home, won’t have done the visitors’ confidence levels much good.

Indeed, Stromsgodset have lost 6 of their last 8 matches overall in the Eliteserien, and it’s been this poor sort of form that has landed them in relegation trouble.

The situation worsens when turning to their form and results away from home as Stromsgodset are one of only two clubs yet to record an away win this season.

The other team is their hosts on Monday night, Sarpsborg, but having lost their last 4 away matches on the trot, Stromsgodset look to be up against it here.

Losses on their travels at Odd, Valerenga, Ranheim and Bodo/Glimt have contributed to Stromsgodset’s poor away record of 0-2-4 2/8.

The bigger picture shows us that Stromsgodset have won just 1 of their last 20 away matches in the Eliteserien.


Key-Facts – Sarpsborg v Stromsgodset

  • Sarpsborg recently beat 3rd polaced Odd 2-0 at home in the Eliteserien
  • Sarpsborg have won 3 of the last 4 encounters against Stromsgodset
  • Stromsgodset have won just 1 of their last 20 away matches in the Eliteserien


Betting Tips Verdict

Sarpsborg’s recent victory over Odd should give them confidence here while Stromsgodset have been poor on the road for some time.
