Tromsø's latest fixture against Strømsgodset ended in an away 1-1 draw. I expected more from their creative midfielders, but it just wasn't their day. Tromsø set the tone early and scored in the 38 minute.
Sarpsborg 08's recent game against Kristiansund ended in a home 0-1 loss. Blåhvitt had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch.
So far, Tromsø plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.75 points per away game on average compared to 0.25 points at home. Although Tromsø is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
Sarpsborg 08 has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Sarpsborg 08 has collected 1.75 points on average per away game, compared to 0.67 at home.
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 Sarpsborg 08.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Tromsø has scored in 75% of home games. Sarpsborg 08 is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
