Stabæk hosts Sarpsborg

Stabæk hosts Sarpsborg 08 in a match from the 15 round of the Norwegian Eliteserien. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the Nadderud Stadion in Bekkestua in our winning soccer predictions.

Right now Stabæk are 13th in the league with just 14 points won so far. Clearly the season didn’t start for them in the way they probably hoped. So far in the league they managed to win just four matches, doing two draws and suffering seven defeats.

In their last five games Stabæk won twice, lost twice and made one draw. In their last game Jan Jonsson’s boys visited Odd, but suffered a 1-2 defeat at the Skagerak Arena. Daniel Braaten scored Stabæk’s only goal in the game, but Odd scored one more and clinched the win.

Before this defeat, Stabæk were in a very good run of two wins and one draw, so now they will try to bounce back from their last loss.

In the same time Sarpsborg 08 are in the relegation zone of the Eliteserien, being 15th in the league with only 12 points won. Their record in the league looks like this: 2 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses. In their last five games Sarpsborg 08 won only once – against Odd, also doing two draws and suffering two losses.

Sarpsborg 08’s last game ended with a loss. Geir Bakke’s boys travelled to face Tromso, but the match didn’t end well for them. The home side clinched a comfortable 2-0 win, thanks to the goals of Magnus Andersen and Onni Valakari. Generally speaking, Sarpsborg 08 didn’t do very well in this game and didn’t hurt the home side in any way.

These are our winning soccer predictions for the Eliteserien clash between Stabæk and Sarpsborg 08 on Monday. We believe that the home side have a slight advantage in this one.
