MAIN PREDICTION: DRAW
Haugesund drew 0-0 away against Saprsborg in their last league match and it was another welcome point for the west coast club. That result followed the three points they picked up in their last home match, an impressive 1-0 home win over Norway’s most successful club, Rosenborg. It is perhaps no coincidence that the two games since Ibrahima Wadji’s return from a doping ban, the club have looked more of a threat from an attacking point of view. But the fact still remains that Haugesund have failed to score in five of their last six matches.
Stabaek’s last league match was a 2-2 draw at home to Bodo Glimt in round 11. But it is worth noting that Stabaek have only lost once away from home in the league this season and they are also unbeaten in their last three away games. In addition, if you trace their away form back over 2019, Stabaek are unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 league matches. These types of statistics make the Baerum club a formidable opponent in this match which in turn makes for an exciting clash in Haugesund.
Haugesund’s recent revival and Stabeak’s solid away record this season makes me think that this game will end in a draw.
HEAD TO HEAD
This league fixture finished in a 3-0 win for Haugesund last season; while the game in Baerum was a well contested 1-1 draw.
