Strømmen will be wanting a better result here following a 5-2 OBOS-ligaen loss in their previous game against Ranheim.
Strømmen have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, but they have also found ways to score goals themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Strømmen have seen their goal breached in 5 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 5 of those games.
Taking a look at their past results, Strømmen:
- have not emerged victorious against Sandnes Ulf in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 home league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 6 league matches. Their fans aren't happy.
Sandnes Ulf head into the encounter following a 2-0 OBOS-ligaen win over Bryne in their previous game.
Demonstrating their fondness for productive encounters, we’ve had goals 20 times in the previous 6 games in which Sandnes Ulf have taken to the field, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals for each fixture. Opposition teams have hit 10 of this grand total. Putting that to one side, we will just have to wait and see if that trend will be maintained in this next game.
