Tromso Prediction – Can Tromso return to winning ways?

Tromso were handed a heavy 4-0 defeat away from home at Lillestrom last time out at the Åråsen Stadion, so they’ll be keen to bounce back with a win here.

Before Sunday’s loss to Lillestrom, Tromso had strung together a promising 3-match winning streak which had helped lift them away from the relegation zone.

Wins against Eliteserien league leaders, Molde as well as victories over Stabaek and Rosenborg should nonetheless give the hosts confidence in this one.

The hosts made a terrible start to their Norwegian top flight campaign on home turf at their Alfheim Stadion but they’ve since staged a revival.

4 defeats on the trot to Viking, Brann, Odd and Bodo/Glimt provided Tromso with the worst possible start to their season in their own backyard.

However, recent back-to-back wins against Molde and Rosenborg have given Tromso a timely boost and they should get something from this clash.

A home record of 2-0-4 6/9 though still needs work but the goals have been present; 4 of Tromso’s 6 home matches have seen both teams score.

Sarpsborg Prediction – Can Sarpsborg pull away from relegation zone?

Visitors, Sarpsborg, have also staged something of a recovery in recent times as they’d previously stumbled to 6 matches without a win in the Eliteserien.

2 draws and 4 defeats made up this miserable 6-match sequence which included 1-1 draws with Bodo/Glimt and Mjondalen.

In addition, defeats to Rosenborg, Kristiansund, Brann and Ranheim had threatened to plunge Sarpsborg into the relegation mire.

However, the visitors have showed fight and spirit in recent matches as they’ve responded in a positive fashion with a win and two draws.

A 2–0 home win against Odd was followed up with back-to-back points gained in draws with Valerenga and Stromsgodset in 1-1 and 2-2 draws respectively.

This recent turnaround in form has been enough to keep Sarpsborg’s heads above water and out of the bottom three in the Eliteserien for the time being.

With just one league position separating them from third from bottom Mjondalen and the relegation play-off spot, the visitors will be keen to add to their points tally in this clash.

4 of Sarpsborg’s 5 away matches have seen both teams score.
