Sogndal vs Stromsgodset by ErdalDag
Despite the win over Stabaek (4-1) at home; Sogndal didn't showed what we want to see from them. Stabaek dominated the match; the visitors were the better side on the pitch over 90 minutes. In last league match against Tromso (3-0) we got a clear idea over Sogndal.
Despite the good start to the match; Sogndal were defensively really bad; they couldn't keep the ball. Moving the ball over with 5-6 passes were difficult for them. In 3rd area of the pitch they found difficult to keep the ball and creating scoring chances.
Stromsgodset started bad to the season. One of the reasons is most probably the lose of the 3 players in the transfer window. Bismark Adjei-Boateng, Martin Ovenstad and Mohammed Abu left the club. Last season we were used to see nearly always Bismark Adjei-Boateng and Mohammed Abu in the midfield of Stromsgodset. Without this 2 players Stromsgodset is not strong as last season in midfield. Still with Jonathan Parr and Henning Hauger; Stromsgodset have quality in midfield.
Despite the bad results I think that Stromsgodset is much stronger and better playing team than Sogndal. The creativity is missing in Sogndal team all over the pitch. Stromsgodset can win here very easy. The only chance here for Sogndal will be that they score first. If Stromsgodset scores here first; the visitors will win easy. Because of the bad defence of Sogndal; I expect Stromsgodset to score here first. After the first goal it will be an easy match for Stromsgodset (my oponion).
