Sarspborg – Can Sarpsborg follow up last week’s much needed win with another success here?

Heading into the last game against Jerv at the end of May, Sarpsborg knew that there would be three weeks to wait before they would play in the league again. So coming off three straight defeats to stem their early season progress meant they had to get any sort of win and halt that poor run, so to gain three points courtesy of a 5-0 win on the road would have made the break seem that bit shorter.

The win puts them back into seventh place after nine games. They can close to within a point of their opponents with a win here and still have a game in had over the visitors and keep themselves on pace with the teams at the top.


Our betting prediction
Stromsgodset win/BTTS
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 14 June)
It is at hom where Stefan Billborn’s men have really struggled to get anything going. A 1-0 win over Odd back at the start of May is their only win at home so far this season, with three defeats and a draw. Contrast that with their form on the road which has seen them win three out of five. If they can improve the former then it bodes well for the rest of the season.
Mikkel Maigaard is set to face the club he left last season. The Danish midfielder spent three years with Stromsgodset and has made a lively start to life with Sarpsborg, scoring four goals in the league so far this year.

Stromsgodset Preview – Will Stromsgodset continue their recent good run and stretch their unbeaten run to seven in the league?

The break probably came at the wrong time for Stromsgodset. After a really difficult start to the campaign which seen them lose three of their first four, they have put together an unbeaten run of six games in the league – winning four of them. Add in a win in the cup and it was a really impressive period, which also saw them score 18 goals and moved them into fourth place.

They remain seven points behind leaders Lillestrom, though, and will feel their realistic chances this season lie in chasing European football.

Since losing to Jerv in their first away game of the season, Stromsgodset have won two and drawn two on their travels, including away to champions Bodo/Glimt. They’ve also kept three clean sheets in their last four away in the league.

Midfielder Johan Hove has been the standout player for Stromsgodset so far in this campaign, continuing on from his performances in the last couple of years. The Norwegian U21 international is on six for the season, scoring in each of the last four league games and five out the last six. He also featured in three games for his country since then.

Sarpsborg vs Stromsgodset Betting Advice

Both of these teams will have ambitions of challenging for European football this season. The two clubs had disappointing seasons in the last campaign, finishing eighth and ninth respectively. Their current standings are more in line with their expectations, and a win here would strengthen either of their hopes.

Stromsgodset have had the better recent record in clashes between their two, winning three of the last five, but it is their hosts who are favourites for victory in this match.


Key Facts –  Sarpsborg vs Stromsgodset Betting Tip

  • Sarpsborg have only won one of their five home games so far this season
  • Stromsgodset have won four of their last six in the league (last loss on the 22nd of April)
  • The last five meetings between these teams have seen Stromsgodset win three times


Sarspborg will be boosted by their win last time out but their form at home is disappointing and doesn’t inspire confidence. Taking that into account long with Stromsgodset’s good record on the road, I’m backing the visitors to get all three points here.
