Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
After holding Rosenborg to a 3-3 draw in Trondheim, Haugesund will look to escape the relegation zone when they take on Aalesund in the Eliteserien round 9. Haugesund have been struggling to find their best form at the start of the season, but Sunday’s clash could be the turning point for the home side. Since attacking trio Soderlund – Ndour – Sande seemed to be in a perfect working order in the midweek draw, head coach Jostein Grindhaug is unlikely to make changes up front.
Aalesund, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 win over newcomers Jerv. The Orange and Blue are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, but seeing that Haugesund want this triumph more than Aalesund, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. As for the visitors, both Fallman and Segberg have been struggling through injuries of late.
