Sarpsborg vs Lillestrom (By: Saconex)
Sarpsborg (12) vs Lillestrom (5)
Sarpsborg have started this season with drawing against Molde (2) & Haugesund (13). After their great season and participating in Europa League last season, they should be ready to bounce back fighting for medals again this season. At least they should be able to find the net against todays opponent imo.
Lillestrom are coming from winning 2-1 at home vs Ranheim (16), after 1-1 in the opening match vs Stabaek (15). They will probably be better than last season, where they almost ended up with playoffs for relegation. This is a kind of match they wont have that much to lose, the hosts are favourites, but Lillestrom are capable of scoring here for sure.
* 9 of last 10 meetings ended with 3+ goals total
* Sarpsborg won this match by 2-0 last season, the reverse fixture ended 2-2
I think its fair to consider the hosts as pretty clear favourites here. Reports says that they were the best team against Molde, one of the biggest favourites for the title and a team that looks all over solid. Lillestrom looks a lot better compared with last season, and they should be capable of finding the net as well. Overall, chances should be good for Sarpsborg to win their first match of the season in a over 2.5 goals match so I give it a try. 3-1?
