Sarpsborg could only draw 1-1 in their away league match against Haugesund last weekend. In that league game, the hosts took a 28th minute lead through an own goal by Sarpsborg’s Aleksandr Vasyutin. Kristoffer Zachariassen levelled matters in 47th minute before the league match petered out tamely. Sarpsborg will not be distracted by European competitions this season and as a result can put all their focus into their domestic campaign - something they couldn’t do last year. They will be hoping to build on the two opening draws to this league campaign, and midfielders Jonathan Lindseth and Kristoffer Zachariassen, their two most impressive performers so far, can drive them to a home win over Lillestrom.


Lillestrom overcame a lacklustre Ranheim side 2-1 in their last league outing at home. Thomas Olsen scored both goals for the home side as they kept up their impressive start. The 27-year-old Norwegian joined Lillestrom at the start of the 2018 season and he has become an invaluable member of the team. Last season, he topped the club’s scoring chart with 12 strikes and a similar tally this year should again carry them away from the relegation zone. Last season, the side won just twice on their travels in the league (three draws, ten losses) and they will need to be more resolute in their away league games this year.


With no European distractions, I expect a much better showing at Sarpsborg this season. The home side should be able to grab the three points here.




Sarpsborg managed a 2-0 victory in this home league fixture in 2018 and a similarly low-scoring league encounter is expected this time around. Both of their first two league contests this season have featured fewer than three total goals and I think we will see more of the same here. 




Sarpsborg are unbeaten in their last five league meetings with Lillestrom, winning three and drawing two.
