Tromso boosted this points tally last week with a 4-2 win over Lillestrom away from home, a result which made it three wins, three defeats, and one draw from their last seven games in all competitions. In the league they have won two of their last three outings as well, but both of these victories came away from home. At home they have lost three of their last four.
Last time out they managed to beat bottom of the table Start 2-1 at home to make it four wins, three draws, and one defeat in their last eight games in all competitions. In the Eliteserien they have won three of their last five and lost just once though.
Away from home they have managed to pick up six points in their last four as well, so they will feel that they have a good chance of getting something from the struggling Tromso. My prediction is that they will secure a point or three, so Im backing a Haugesund Win or Draw Double Chance at 3/4 along with a 1-1 correct score prediction at 11/2.
Theyve taken 10 points from their last 5 Eliteserien matches and beat current leaders Brann 3-1 in a friendly last weekend. Theyve been pretty solid on the road too this term but they are up against the team with the second best home record here so the result is a tough one to call. Haugesund meanwhile were also going pretty well before the mid season break.
Haugesund vs Tromso on 2019/07/15
The Arabs just cant find their best form, but the fact that they picked up one point from their last league fixture surely gave them a confidence boost. After holding Viking to a goalless draw at the weekend, Haugesund will be looking to put an end to their four-match winless run in the Eliteserien when they welcome Troms at their Haugesund Stadion. Haugesund are only one point clear of their Sundays rivals, meaning that a close encounter is on the cards.
Their overall record is won 19, lost 15 and drawn 7. They have averaged scoring 1.63 goals a match. Their defence has let in 1.29 goals per game. Focussing on their results over the last year, Haugesund have played 41 matches.
Coming into the halfway point of the season Tromso find themselves in 11th position. They have managed to open a five point gulf between them and the relegation playoff position, but its still a fairly disappointing points return from 14 matches.
The Arabs picked up no more than two wins in 20 H2H meetings with Tromso who lead the tie by as many as ten victories.
