Tobias Gourlay finishes the week in Norway, where he’s hoping Aalesunds will be their usual entertaining selves in the Eliteserien this afternoon
Aalesunds v Sarpsborg
In Norway yesterday, Kristiansund struck three times but Viking wouldn’t be vanquished. The visitors won 5-3 to bring down our bet. We’re giving the Eliteserien a chance to redeem itself this afternoon.
Aalesunds might be bottom of the 16-team league, but their Color Line Stadion has been delivering unprecedented levels of entertainment. All of the Tangos’ first eight home games of the campaign have delivered Over 3.5 Goals, with goals at both ends in every single match. The most recent three of those games were all against teams in the bottom half of the table and finished 3-2, 2-2 and 1-3.
Sarpsborg are currently 12th. They have conceded 12 times in losing each of their last three away matches but will fancy their chances of getting among the goals themselves against rock-bottom Aalesunds. At a juicy odds-against price, we’re backing Over 3.5 Goals to land for a ninth straight Aalesunds home match.
