My match for today comes from Norway, between Ham Kam and Sogndal. After 5 rounds, the home team has won 1 match, drawn in 1, and lost in 3, and currently sits in the 12th position of the table. Ham-Kam recently lost to Sandness at home in a 2-3 score line.
After 5 rounds, the guests have won 1 match, drawn in 1, and lost in 3, and currently sits in the 13th position of the league table. They managed a 5:0 win in the Norwegian Cup against Stryn, but got a 1:3 beating from Aalesund, although this was expected as Aalesund is placed first in the table.
While these are two teams that come into this match with equal strengths, I feel that the visitors will push for a win right from the start. The visitors have scooped 4 consecutive victories at Ham-Kam’s home ground. If we include the friendly games as well, the guests have carried the day in 7 out of the past 8 head to head matches. The odds are good for Sogndal to win here, but I feel that the home team will also be looking forward to overturn this trend, and also the guests seem to be facing big challenges in their defence recently. Both teams should easily make it to the score sheet.
