30th of August, Boost of the Day
I’ve placed a Boost of the Day for Sunday, you can read my research behind it below. The first match kicks off in Finland at 4:30pm, and the second will take place in Norway not long after.
GrIFK vs Klubi-04
The two matches involved in my Sunday Boost of the Day kick off at similar times, but first off we’ll be heading to Finland at 4:30pm as I’ve found what should be a goalfest in the Kakkonen. Klubi are flying at the top of the table and they’ll travel to GrIFK who are scoring as well as conceding goals in abundance.
10 games into the campaign, GrIFK have scored 17 times and conceded 31. That’s an average of 4.8 goals per game which is unreal. Klubi have played 9 times and have had 40 goals scored across their matches thus far and that averages out at 4.44 per game. We just need a few here so I’m obviously confident, these lower-division Scandinavian leagues are amazing and It’s not difficult to pick out what should be high-scoring affairs.
9 of GrIFK’s 10 outings so far have seen Over 2.5 goals scored, and it’s 7 out of 9 for Klubi who have won their last 7 matches on the spin. Klubi have scored 32 goals across 9 matches which is an average of 3.55 per game for just themselves… It would have to be considered a miracle if GrIFK keep them at bay but I really can’t see that happening.
It’s pretty interesting the amount of information that can be dug up, even on matches at this level which you’d think would be hard to come by. Looking at the home side GrIFK, we should keep our eye on striker Daniel Langhoff who has scored 9 goals in 10 appearances so far. Then for the visitors Klubi, it’s all about 18-year-old Saku Heiskanen who has bagged 6 in 9. He was born in 2001!
Rosenborg vs Stabaek
Rosenborg return to league action with what should be a high level of confidence within their squad. They were 4-2 winners over Icelandic side Breidablik in the Europa League during the week, and most of you will be aware as we had them involved in one of our bets.
Rosenborg are now enjoying a 4-match winning streak where they’ve managed to score 14 goals, an average of 3.5 goals per game during the run. I’d expect them to keep this going against an average Stabaek side, it’s Rosenborg’s superiority at home which gives me that added level of faith. They have won their last 5 Eliteserien matches at the Lerkendal Stadion on the spin, scoring at least a couple of goals in each of them. They’ve only lost one of their last 19 there which came against the amazing Bodo Glimt, so there’s no shame there. As mentioned in one of my previous write ups, Rosenborg’s Dino Islamovic is a player to look out for, he’s in good form.
Stabaek’s current form is poor as they’re on a run of 6 games without a win, and they’ve lost 3 of their last 4. They don’t score many goals and they’re the lowest-scorers in the top half of the Norwegian top flight as things stand. That will be a concern as they get set to face Rosenborg who boast the best defence in the entire league, conceding on just 13 occasions so far, that’s 5 fewer than Bodo who lead the way at the top of the table.
These two sides have already met in the league this season, and it was a comfortable 3-0 win for Rosenborg away from home back in July. They bagged all three goals in the second half as they picked up all 3 points, and of course Dino Islamovic was on the scoresheet. I see a repeat here and another comfortable win for Rosenborg, they have great momentum behind them and they need to keep winning in order to break into the top 3 and challenge those above them.
