Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Aalesund will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Start when they take on Sarpsborg 08 on Matchday 17. Aalesund made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only seven points from possible 48, and it is no wonder they are seen as No. 1 candidates for relegation. The rock-bottom side are low on confidence ahead of Sunday’s clash, meaning that home win should not be considered.
Sarpsborg, on the other hand, will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in Eliteserien. The visitors failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to league leaders Bodo, but they are surely capable of beating Aaleund at Color Line Stadium. Sarpsborg rolled over Sandefjord 3-0 on the road earlier this term, and they are likely to record their second away win of the 2020 campaign this weekend. In their last meeting in the Norwegian top flight Sarpsborg crushed Aalesund 4-0.
