Start (2) vs Ranheim (5)
Very important top match in this league tonight. Start are standing with a total of 14-7-5 and 49-30 in goal difference. They are standing with 8-4-1 at home but are coming from 3 straight draws at home. Rivals for a direct promotion spot, Sandnes (3) didn’t manage to win vs bottom team Arendal (16) on Sunday, so this match gives Start a great chance of getting a gap down to the rivals of 4 points, with 3 matches left after this. Defender Tapio Heikkilä are suspended tonight.
Ranheim are struggling a bit at the moment, and are coming from a very disappointing home loss 0-1 vs Sandnes (3) last time out. They are now without a win in 4 matches (0-2-2) and their away record isn’t very impressive either; 3-5-4 with 14-17 in goal difference. The playoff spot is probably secured for the team, but a direct promotion will be way to difficult if they dont win tonight. Their important defender Christian Rismark are suspended tonight.
* Ranheim won the reverse fixture 1-0 back in May.
I think this match will be exiting to follow, because Ranheim have to win if their hope for a direct promotion should stay alive. Start knows that a win gives them a great chance of cruising against a promotion before the 3 last matches. Taking in mind their latest form, Start have to be considered as favourites here, they are in much better form, have home advantage and they are probably fired up for this match. Also, a revenge from May is a motivation factor for the hosts here. I think Start will deliver a good performance and win this match, and take a big bounce towards the top division again.
