Stromsgodset vs Aalesund by Isaiah
Stromsgodset is coming from an away draw with the score of 1-1 against Sogndal, in a very mediocre game according to the match reports. Stromsgodset climbed again back to first position to the league table after the away defeat of Molde with the score of 4-1 against Brann.
Four games without a win is a lot for Stromsgodset, with three draws and one defeat, including the 4-0 away defeat against Tromso, they lost the advantage of six points, and today is a crucial game for them. The climate is good for them, and any stress and anxiety should be to Molde and Rosenborg, as they are both playing for Europa League groups next Thursday. From tonight's match Stromsgodset has no problems, only absent is injured defender and captain of the team, Aleksander Aas.

Aalesund won with the score of 0-2 away to Honefoss, in a game that they clearly had the control of the game and won easily. With this victory Aalesund climbed to ninth place with 29 points, nine above the relegation zone, and everything shows that they will not be involved in any relegation scenarios.
The nine points above relegation should give them a good breath and probably they will be more relaxed from now on, although nothing is finished yet, only nine games left to finish the league and logically they can't reach top four, as they have a very difficult fixture program.
From tonight's match, Jamaican striker Demar Phillips is still out, while they have a problem with three key players, all foreign internationals, midfielder Michael Barrantes, Jamaican midfielder Jason Morrison and also Jamaican forward Tremaine Stewart, who were missing with the national teams of their countries, arrived yesterday morning in Oslo, and their participation is doubtful. However, just cause that their roster is aparted only from 22 players, there are no replacements, and they will be included to the squad probably, although they have not trained with the rest of the team for the last 15 days.
I guess that this will be a typical Stromsgodset home game, with the hosts to attack and the guests to defend from first minute. Aalesund is a naturally defensive team, but they have some important missings, while Stromsgodset is a pure attacking team with Keita and Kamara in front line. Easy or not, i think that the hosts will find a way to take all three points.
