Norway Eliteserien – Stabaek v Kristiansund Preview (25/6/17)

 

Match Preview

I was really really close to taking Stabaek either -1 or -0.75 here, but ultimately I can’t trust them enough on current form. They’ve conceded a massive 12 goals in their last 3 games and defensively looked all over the place. However, all of those fixtures were facing strong teams or sides in form, they are unlikely to be tested as much by a very limited Kristiansund outfit. The visitors are the worst side in the league in my opinion and have the worst playing squad on paper. However, they always fight very hard and will give maximum effort. They’ve actually only lost 2 of their last 8 games and it’s been a while since they got battered by anyone. I think this is a favourable matchup for Stabaek and I see a home win. But on a -1 handicap I guess I can give this one a swerve due to a few doubts. I do fancy Stabaek to deliver today though.

Prediction: 3-1

Recommended bet: None
