Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Stabæk v FK Haugesund (plus the best game odds).
Stabæk will play in this fixture following a 2-2 Eliteserien draw vs Rosenborg BK.
For Stabæk, the goals were scored by Hugo Vetlesen (48') and Oliver Edvardsen (84'). Edvard Tagseth (12') and Torgeir Børven (55') scored for Rosenborg BK.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Stabæk have shown defensive steel. The reality is that De Blaa have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 13 goals in the process. That sort of pattern might not be carried forward here, though.
Their prior results show that Stabæk:
- are winless against FK Haugesund in their last 4 league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 5 league matches. Things will have to change soon.
FK Haugesund head into the clash following on from a 2-1 Eliteserien win with the eclipse of Vålerenga in their previous outing.
For FK Haugesund, the scorers were Kristoffer Velde (16') and Ibrahima Wadji (36'). Matthías Vilhjálmsson (47') was the scorer for Vålerenga.
The stats tell the story, and FK Haugesund have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in total. At the back, FKH could really do with shoring things up.
Coming into this clash, FK Haugesund haven't won against Stabæk in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
Head to head
A glance at their past head to head meetings dating back to 13/08/2017 shows that Stabæk have won 1 of them & FK Haugesund 3, with the number of drawn results being 2.

The match was refereed by Kai Erik Steen.
Team News: Stabæk
Matthew Rusike (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jeppe Moe (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for Stabæk boss Jan Jönsson.
It seems likely that De Blaa may well employ a 4-3-3 system for the game, utilising Markus Sandberg, Peder Vogt, Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Mats Solheim, Jørgen Øveraas, Hugo Vegard Vetlesen, Emil Bohinen, Tortol Lumanza Lembi, Oliver Valaker Edvardsen, Erik Botheim and Kosuke Kinoshita.
Team News: FK Haugesund
Owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go, FK Haugesund boss Jostein Grindhaug has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match. Kristoffer Velde cannot play in this game through suspension.
From our viewpoint, FKH might begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting Helge Sandvik, Mikkel Desler, Fredrik Knudsen, Benjamin Tiedemann Hansen, Alexander Stølås, Christian Grindheim, Thore Pedersen, Niklas Sandberg, Bruno Leite, Alexander Ammitzbøll and Ibrahima Wadji.
We envisage that FK Haugesund and Stabæk could well cancel each other out, with goals at a real premium.
We’ll have to see, but a draw might be on the cards. Therefore, we predict a very competitive game with a 0-0 score when the full-time whistle blows.
