Raufoss will be hoping for a better result following the 2-0 OBOS-ligaen losing effort in their last game against Stabæk.
Fitim Azemi (70') was the scorer for Stabæk.
Raufoss have really struggled up front in recent times. Their goals record stands at just 4 versus opposing sides during their last six outings. In those meetings, Raufoss have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total 14.
Start come into this game following a 3-1 OBOS-ligaen win to defeat Stjørdals-Blink in their previous outing.
For Start, goals were scored by Eirik Schulze (43') and Joacim Holtan (53'). Mads Lillebo (62') was the scorer for Stjørdals-Blink.
In as many as 6 of the previous 6 clashes involving Start, at least three goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per match within that spell is 5.33, with the number of goals averaged by Start standing at 3.5. In any event, it remains to be seen if such a trend might be sustained in this upcoming game or not.

Team News: Raufoss
The Raufoss boss Christian Johnsen does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game with a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Start
Start manager Jóhannes Harðarson has to currently contend with reduced team options. Sander Sjökvist (Back Injury) and Jon Helge Tveita (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
It looks to us that Start will most probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
At the other end, Raufoss will be up against it to score themselves although we think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage.
We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 1-3 winning margin for Start at the end of this one.
