The season in top Norway division is on the break due to Euro-2016. This pause should help Stabaek to find balance as they had a slow start of the campaign in domestic league. The visiting side is currently 15th in the league with 10 points gained in 13 matches and has 14-21 aggregate goal difference. Stabaek show mediocre results on the road as well, taking four wins, drawing one and losing six of their 11 away matches in 2016. Norway side played two friendly matches during this break, beating Falkenbergs, 1-0 and Lillestrom, 5-0. This results should put fans in optimistic mood before restart of the season in Norway and the beginning of Europa League battles.
The opponents haven’t played before a single match. Norwegian team appears to be stronger side in compare with semi-professional side from Wales and the visitors should prove their class in away match, taking victory on the road.
Prediction for the match: Stabaek to win.
