Sarpsborg 08 will welcome Kristiansund to Sarpsborg Stadion for a matchday 5 fixture in Norway Eliteserien. The last meeting on 2nd December 2020 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Sarpsborg 08 has won 1 match, and Kristiansund triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 3.38 goals, while both teams score 75% of the time.
Sarpsborg 08's latest fixture against Odd ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Sarpsborg 08 set the tone early and scored in the 27 minute.
Kristiansund's recent game against Strømsgodset ended in a home 1-0 win. Although KBK didn't match their opponent's intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Kristiansund put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 33rd minute.
So far, Sarpsborg 08 plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.75 points per away game on average compared to 0.67 points at home. Blåhvitt has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 67% of their home games.
Kristiansund has picked up 15 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Kristiansund wins 1.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Kristiansund kept a clean sheet in just 25% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Kristiansund.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Thursday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 25% of Sarpsborg 08's home and Kristiansund's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
