Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Sarpsborg will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aalesund when they host Mjondalen at their Sarpsborg Stadion on Matchday 18. Mikael Stahre’s troops quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to league leaders Bodo, and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. Sarpsborg aim to escape the danger zone, and they should take advantage of Mjondalen’s current form.
The visitors are on a three-game losing run in Eliteserien, with the team being stuck in the relegation zone. Mjondalen have been struggling at the back of late, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s football match. Ivory Coast international Vamouti Diomande remains in the recovery room for the visitors, while Sarpsborg boss Mikael Stahre has no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Mjondalen. Anyhow, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
