Stromsgodset sit two points adrift at the bottom of the Eliteserien table heading into this weekends trip to Lillestrom, but there is hope for the visitors as the home side have lost four of their last six matches and only have five more points on the board this season. However, Stromsgodset have failed to win any of their last six matches in all competitions, losing five and picking up their only point away at fellow relegation battlers Sarpsborg.
Lillestrom made the trip to Kristiansund last week where they ended up being convincingly beaten by five goals to two. The host moved three goals in front before Lillestrom pulled one back to make it 3-1 at the interval. Kristiansund increased their lead on the hour mark but Ebiye pulled a goal back for Lillestrom thirteen minutes later, though Kristiansund would have the final say deep into stoppage time as they scored again to wrap up a 5-2 win. Stromsgodset had the home advantage against Stabaek last time out but that didn’t stop the struggling side from slipping to yet another defeat. The visitors opened the scoring in the fourteenth minute and lead 1-0 at the break and another goal nine minutes from time wrapped up all three points for Stabaek.
The recent head to head record between these two clubs and the performances of both teams over the last month or so, suggests that under 2.5 goals will be scored on Sunday and we’re backing Lillestrom to win the game. Three of the last six meetings between these two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals and the away side has failed to win any of the last eight meetings between these two teams. Three of Lillestrom’s last five and three of Stromsgodset’s last six matches have produced under 2.5 goals. The visitors have lost five of their last six matches in all competitions, which is why we’re backing a 1-0 win for Lillestrom this weekend.
Olsen top scores for Lillestrom this season with six Eliteserien goals, while Abdellaoue leads the way for Stromsgodset with three goals and is one of just three players in the visitor’s squad that have scored more than once in the league this season. We’re confident that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s game and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 to Lillestrom. Lillestrom don’t have the best of records against Stromsgodset over the last couple of years but have outperformed their guests so far this season and head into this weekend’s encounter as the form favourites.
These two teams have clashed forty-three times before, and with 18 wins, 8 draws, and 17 defeats it is Stromsgodset that edge the head to head record.
