Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Aalesund desperately needed a win in the relegation six-pointer against Start, and they managed to get one. Lars Bohinen’s troops quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Odd, but they should not stop now. Aalesund aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Sarpsborg 08. Midfielder David Kristjan Olafsson returns from suspension, while Oddbjorn Lie is sidelined with injury for the visiting team.
Sarpsborg, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Mikael Stahre’s charges are eyeing their third home win of the season, and given Aalesund’s away record in the 2020 Eliteserien campaign, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their last meeting in the Norwegian elite division Sarpsborg recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aalesund.
