Sandnes Ulf form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for Sandnes Ulf's two home games in the Obos-Ligaen so far this season, having collected 3 points here at Øster Hus Arena.

The home team returns to Øster Hus Arena after being equal after 90 minutes with Sogndal (placed 14th) on their last time out; the Obos-Ligaen game ended 2-2. Opportunity lost for Sandnes in the Sogndal match as a lead 2-0 was lost and what looked like a victory ended in a draw.

Preceding that game was the away draw at Sogndal that finished 2-2.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams.

Raufoss's previous game was their home loss versus Grorud (2-4). A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Raufoss, as mentioned above. 6 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun?
