Sarpsborg vs Start by 20legend

Sarpsborg
VS
Start
Sarpsborg 08 was not able to follow up their perfect win against Brann (3-0) two weeks ago, as they just managed a 1-1 draw against Sogndal in their last game. However, their newest signing, Frank Dja Djedje from Chornomorets Odesa that was signed on March 31st, scored after just one minute against Sogndal. Their coach Brian Dean seems to have got together a good team with low resources. He has already signed midfielder Bojan Zajic (Valerenga) and striker Aaron Samuel (Valerenga) and both have been a blessing for them so far for their offensive play. Defender Kjetil Berge (0/0), striker Martin Wiig (2/0) and defender Andreas Nordvik (0/0) are missing with injuries.

 

Start has got a fresh start on the season as well with three points from the first two games. They was testing Stromsgodset (4-2 loss) in the first match two weeks ago, as they lead both 0-1 and 1-2, but had not the energy to keep on the lead. The game against Haugesund was also a difficult test for them, and it looked like it was going to be a 0-1 loss. However, two changes of their coach Mons Ivar Mjelde after 70 minutes got things going, and Start scored three goals in the following six minutes to secure a strong 3-1 win. Striker Jorge Alejandro Castro (0/0) and defender Jesper Mathisen (1/0) have been through surgery and will be missing tonight. In addition midfielder Espen Borufsen (0/0) is also out.

 

This game could be the one with most goals involved of the games in Tippeligaen this weekend. I expect a quite open game with two teams that are quite week defensively on paper. However, Sarpsborg 08 seems to have used the winter-break well and progressed in that area since last season. With the mentioned signings of Zajic, Samuel and Dja Djedje, Sarpsborg 08 has also got a whole bigger improvement offensively as well. Start has also been impressive in the first two matches, but they also like it best at home. In the end, I predict Sarpsborg to continue their positive energy at home and at least score two times against Start. My prediction; 2-2, 2-1,3-1,3-2.
