Sogndal vs Tromso by Rainbow-Bet

Read full preview at:


Tromsø visit Fosshaugane Campus and are up against Sogndal. The guest's got enormous injury problems ahead of this match, they've only scored 5 goals this season, two of the three goalscorers for Tromsø are unavailable for this match due to injury and suspension.


The home side sits on a 10th in the Norwegian Tippeliga, 2-1-1 is the stats home at Fosshaugane. Only strong sides Rosenborg and Odd has manage to take points from Sogndal at home. Rosenborg draw 1-1, while Odd won a 0-1 in a tight game. Sogndal is extremely compact and disciplined in defense and are conceding few goals, at the same time their striker duos Sveen and Ramsland begin to show cooperation and goals.


In the last league round Aalesund was beaten 1-4, in a match where both Sveen and Ramsland worked hard and together and ended up with one goal each. Kocked out of the Norwegian Cup like a lot of other Tippeliga-clubs this season, 1-0 against Nest Sotra is a bit embarrassing. Head coach and former Leeds player Eirik Bakke seems to have made a solid and safe defensive team in Sogndal, and the offensive relations start to improve as well. Victor Grodås (defender) are out injured, while important Hannu Patronen (defender) are back after suspension.


Expected lineup Sogndal:




Pedersen – Patronen – Psyche – Teniste


Koomson – Birkelund – Sarr – Kjemhus


Ramsland – Sveen


Tromsø has been poor last couple of years away from home in the league. So far they're on a 12th with 0-2-3 stat away from home, the goal difference are even worse with 1-13. Only 1 goal is scored away from home this season, it came in the first league round against Molde (1-1), and was scored by Aron Sigurdarson who is expected to start on the bench today. At home there's also scored few goals, only 4 goals so far. These 4 goals are only scored by two players: Sofien Moussa (3 goals) and Runar Espejord ( 1 goal), booth these two are unavailable today due to suspension and injury.


But the injury problems are bigger for Tromsø. Here is the compleat list of unavailable players:


William Frantzen (defender)


Hans Norbye (defender)


Morten Gamst Pedersen (midfield)


Mikael Norø Ingebrigtsen (midfield)


Sofien Moussa (striker)


Runar Espejord (striker)


The injury list are long, and Tromsø takes with them all available players for the trip to Sogndal, this means in total 17 players. Is expected that the young centre back Jostein Gundersen will make his debut from start at right back, while striker Christer Johnsgård makes his debut up top today as well.


Expected lineup Tromsø:




Gundersen – Ødegaard – Wangberg – Antonsen


M.Andersen – Landu-Landu – J.Johansen – Aasen


Olsen – Johnsgård


An extremely difficult task for Tromsø with injuries in all positions, who will make any goals for the away side? We believe Sogndal takes their third home win today, and they will not concede any goals either, against a Tromsø side that are struggling to even create chances.
