Even though the head to head stats completely favour the visiting team, everything else in on Haugesunds side and we will back the hosts to claim three points and keep on with the climb up the Eliteserien ladder.
Tromso have been in a fine form of late, with the team winning four of their five league fixtures and seeing that the Arabs do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. In previous two meetings between the two teams Haugesund emerged triumphant, but we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
The team led by Eirik Horneland allowed no more than a single goal in last four league fixtures. The rock-solid defense is the main reason for the run of three consecutive wins in all competitions prior to the last weekends 1-1 draw with Viking away from home.

Bard Flovik could, however, be satisfied with the 1-1 draw with Sandefjord which ended a horrific streak of three convincing losses to the likes of Lillestrom, Valerenga and Molde.

They arent the sort of side that parks the bus on the road and their average of 1.75 goals per away game is actually better than what theyve managed at home. Haugesund matches have also been pretty entertaining. Their last four have produced goals at both ends while that is also the case for 10 of their last 12 competitive matches overall.
Christian Grindheim is ill and will be monitored. The visitors could be without Frederik Gytkjr, Per Kristian Worre Brtveit, Torbjrn Kallevg and Vegard Skjerve to injury.
A defeat cold send them as low as 8th though, but overall they will be very content with their 24 point return from 14 games. Haugesund were in a similar position to Tromso last term as they finished one position above them with a two point advantage over them. This season is going much better though. They are currently occupying 5th position in the Eliteserien, and a win on Saturday could take them into the top three.
Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
The visitors will have a very tough task to escape the danger area this weekend when they travel to Haugesund to take on one of the contenders for the top half of the standings at the end of the season.
Their overall record is won 19, lost 15 and drawn 7. They have averaged scoring 1.63 goals a match. Focussing on their results over the last year, Haugesund have played 41 matches. Their defence has let in 1.29 goals per game.
