Haugesund vs Sarpsborg Match Analysis and Prediction

Both Haugesund and Sarpsborg will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in the Eliteserien when they face off at Haugesund Stadion in their Matchday 15 tie on Sunday night.

Haugesund head into the match off a narrow 1-0 away defeat to Molde, with Magnus Groden sealing the deal for the hosts from the penalty spot in the 57th minute. They have now failed to win their last three league matches as they previously coming off a 1-1 draw with Ham-Kam and a 1-0 defeat to Jerv.

As a result  of the run, Jostein Grindhaug’s side are sitting just above the relegation zone on goal difference, as they are level on 13 points with Tromso who occupy the relegation-playoff spot, while they are just two points above 15th-placed Jerv.

Haugesund will therefore be desperate to bounce back to winning ways as they seek to climb away from the danger zone. Anything less than a win on Sunday could leave them inside the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Sarpsborg are coming off a narrow 1-0 home defeat to Valerenga last Sunday, with Amor Layouni winning it for the visitors in the 30th minute.

Sarpsborg have now lost their last two league matches as they were previous coming off a 4-1 away loss to Bodo/Glimt, while they have now lost three of their last four league matches. The run has seen them drop to eighth place in the league standings, where they sit level on points with ninth-placed Odd, while they are now nine points off the European spots.

Therefore, Stefan Billborn’s side will be keen to end their slump as they seek to avoid any further drop in the league table. However, they have failed to win at Haugesund Stadion in their last eight visits and have lost three away matches in a row.
