Team News: Stabæk
Matthew Rusike (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jeppe Moe (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be able to feature for Stabæk boss Jan Jönsson.
We are thinking that De Blaa will possibly line up in a 4-2-3-1 system for the game featuring Markus Sandberg, Emil Jonassen, Yaw-Ihle Amankwah, Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Mats Solheim, Emil Bohinen, Tortol Lumanza Lembi, Luc Kassi, Hugo Vegard Vetlesen, Kornelius Normann Hansen and Oliver Valaker Edvardsen.
Team News: Strømsgodset IF
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Strømsgodset IF manager Henrik Pedersen to contend with. Prosper Mendy (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be in action.
We believe Godset seem most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 formation, going with Viljar Myhra, Sondre Fosnæss Hanssen, Ari Leifsson, Niklas Gunnarsson, Nicholas Mickelson, Mikkel Maigaard, Johan Hove, Herman Stengel, Kristoffer Tokstad, Lars-Jørgen Salvesen and Moses Mawa.
We feel that in this game, Strømsgodset IF are certainly able to break down this Stabæk side, although it is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We can see a 2-1 victory for Stabæk by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
