Norway Eliteserien – Ranheim v Sarpsborg Preview (6/10/19)

Match Preview

Much as in a similar way to Friday night’s match between Mjondalen & Godset, this is a huge relegation ‘6 pointer’ down at the bottom of the table. A win for either side would take them out of the bottom three but defeat could be potentially catastrophic. I have been worried for Ranheim for quite some time with them now winning just 1 of their last 13 league fixtures. The last time they tasted success in front of their own fans was way back in May. Sarpsborg are in exactly the same boat though, winning only 1 of their last 13 fixtures as well! They have massively underachieved this year and everyone is waiting for them to find some form. I have to ask the question will it ever come though? On the road SS08 have produced some extremely disappointing performances and they simply can’t afford another one here. Maybe both will cancel each other out and this will be a draw. Ultimately, I have no faith in either side right now and nothing would surprise me. For those backing Sarpsborg as an away favourite then good luck to you, they are a poor price.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
