Norway Eliteserien – Strømsgodset v Haugesund Preview (5/12/21)

Match Preview

Strømsgodset

  • Just 1 win in their last 9 games 
  • Strong 8-3-3 home record this season is the 4th best in the league
  • 10 out of 14 home games ended with over 2.5 goals
  • #1 keeper Viljar Mhyra still injured

Haugesund

  • 1-4-9 away record is the joint worst in the league
  • Both teams scored in last 4 games
  • No injuries or suspensions

Conclusion

End of season fixture between two lower midtable teams and there is not much at stake. Conditions are going to be cold and the artificial surface likely quite tricky to play on. If conditions were a bit better and more normal I’d probably take over 3 goals in this game, but I can’t be sure now. Godset are the most likely winners just because this is their last remaining home match of the season. Perhaps they will be more motivated to get a result. Who knows though, this match could end anything really. 

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet: None
