Norway throws up a betting tip on Thursday night, when Stromsgodset host Sogndal. Godset sit in first place, as they did for much of the last campaign, and their home form has been immense for some time. Sogndal avoided the drop by two points last term, but are they well placed to cause an upset?
Match: Stromsgodset v Sogndal
Betting tip: Stromsgodset -1.5 Asian Handicap
Best Odds: 1.98 with Bet365
Kick off: 17:00 16/05/2013
Stromsgodset were pipped to the Tippeligaen title last term in a very tight run in, eventually losing out to Molde. Their home form was the back bone of that campaign, and they have started this year in similar fashion, winning four and drawing one of their five games at Marienlyst Stadion. Three of those five games have been won by two clear goals, and there is plenty to like about the even money on them doing the same versus lowly Sogndal. The visitors survived the drop by just two points last term and have lost two of four away games this season. A 4-0 defeat versus Rosenborg, and a 4-1 away loss at Viking highlight some defensive frailties which has meant just two clean sheets in nine games. Godset were the top scorers in the League last year, and Sogndal have conceded eleven goals in their three games against sides in the top five, so all the signs point to a routine victory for the hosts.
