MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Sarpsborg made it three games unbeaten at home when they drew 0-0 with Haugesund in round 11. League games played in Sarpsborg have not been the most exciting this season, with just ten total goals scored. If you can exclude their 3-0 away defeat to Viking in round 10, then Sarpsborg’s recent form is strong – this home match against Aalesund is another opportunity to strengthen that form further.
Aalesund last match was an entertaining 3-2 home win over fellow strugglers Start. The Icelandic striker Holmber Fridjonsson helped himself to a hattrick in that game to help his club across the line. It was the first time Aalesund have won this season and that is sure to be a major boost to their morale going forward. For here, they will have to stop conceding goals if they are to avoid relegation: they have let in at least two goals in six of their last seven matches.
Although Aalesund won for the first time this season in their last league match against Start, Sarpsborg’s recent home form will make it very difficult to take anything from this one. For this reason, I will predict a home win.
HEAD TO HEAD
Sarpsborg have unbeaten record in the recent six encounters with Aalesund, having four wins and two draws.
