Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Haugesund will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sandefjord when they face Start on Matchday 5. Haugesund recorded their first win of the season at the weekend, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. French defender Ben-Kantie Karamoko has overcome his injury, and he is pushing for a start. Johannes Hardarson’s troops, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back at the start of the season, with the team conceding 12 goals in total in the first four league fixtures.
Considering that the visitors head into the midweek clash with a severely-weakened squad, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at Haugesund Stadion the hosts emerged triumphant, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. A man to watch in the home team will be Niklas Sandberg, who has netted three goals so far this term.
