Team News: Strømsgodset IF
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Strømsgodset IF gaffer Bjørn Ingebretsen to contend with from a near full-strength squad. Lars-Jörgen Salvesen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Stabæk
Thanks to a completely healthy group available for selection, Stabæk manager Jan Jönsson does not have any fitness concerns at all before this match.
We’re thinking that Strømsgodset IF are likely to convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Stabæk could well struggle to break down their defence but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be being dangerous at times, too.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 3-1 margin for Strømsgodset IF come full-time.
