The home fans are expecting three points in this fixture, as the home advantage should be put to good use versus a struggling visitor. Stabæk are in the 9th position while the guesting Aalesund worry at 16th.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

It should be mentioned that Aalesund play their home matches on artifical turf, so they have to adjust for this one as it's played on grass. Does it matter?

Stabæk form and stats

Stabæk have played 10 Eliteserien games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 4-3-3 (wins-draws-losses). Hopes of three in a row are alive for Stabæk after consecutive victories at their own ground.

In their previous game, the manager J. Jönsson led his Stabæk to a defeat in the Eliteserien match away at Sarpsborg 08. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Nadderud Stadion. Ahead of that match, Stabæk won a home game hosting Start (2-0).

As you see from the result above, Stabæk suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one. The game against Sarpsborg 08 was basically lost in the first half (0-4) and the second half was more of a formality.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Stabæk's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played one game, won zero matches, drawn zero and lost one.

Stabæk has scored 11 league goals at home this season, in 10 matches. On the other hand, Stabæk have conceded 10 goals.

Regardless of home/away, the visitors have now lost seven in a row. It's been 10 weeks since they last avoided defeat. (The Viking game.) A depressing six defeats in a row for Aalesund in their away games. Unhappy days, as the last time they avoided a loss on the road was versus Vålerenga.
