Start will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 1-0 OBOS-ligaen defeat last time out to SK Brann.
Felix Myhre (57') scored for SK Brann.
A recurring feature of more recent Start games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
From their previous sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've been a losing one.
Coming into this fixture, Start have not emerged victorious against Bryne in their previous 5 matches in the league.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Kongsvinger IL in OBOS-ligaen competition, Bryne and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
For Bryne, the scorers were Sigurd Grønli (80') and Rogvi Baldvinsson (88' Own goal).
The stats don’t lie, and Bryne have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 11 goals overall. Defensively, Bryne have some weaknesses to address. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, though.
Coming into this fixture, Bryne haven't been defeated by Start when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.

Team News: Start
The Start boss Jóhannes Harðarson has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash with a fully injury-free group available to select from. Vito Wormgoor will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Bryne
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, the Bryne boss Hans Frette has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this game.
Our feeling is that Bryne are dangerous enough to find the net against this Start side, although that possibly won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 victory for Start at the end of the 90 minutes. Let’s just see how this one goes.
