Last season, Start played in the promotion playoff. However, 2024 have been a disaster so far for them, as Azar Karadas' team collected only six points in the first nine league matches. In the previous game, Start lost 2-1 on the road against Moss. The home side dominated, as they finished the match with 13 shots on goal, more than the Start. Now, Karadas' team will return to the home stadium, where they were unbeaten in the previous three games. 

Sogndal have been surprisingly successful this season. They are second in the table, with only two points fewer than the league leader, Kongsvinger. Sogndal are without a defeat in the previous four games. In the last match, they played 1-1 at home against Raufoss. Tore Andre Flo's team lacked creativity in that match, so they split points with the guests. 

Start vs Sogndal pick: Under 2.5 goals

Start are playing slightly better defensively at home. On the other hand, Sogndal are the best defensive team in the league with only six allowed goals in nine matches. We shouldn't expect more than two goals in this game.

Start team news

Before the season started, Start were considered one of the best OBOS-Ligaen teams. However, now, they should even worry about relegation. The summer transfer window is approaching, and they certainly need some additions. Start had too many defensive problems, but it is not surprising when we see that most of their defensive players are 22 years or younger.

Sogndal

Sogndal team news

Sogndal is far from the most talented squad in the competition, but the head coach, Tore Andre Flo, is leading them magnificently. Although he was a legendary Norwegian attacker who played for Chelsea at the peak of his career, Flo created a very hard-to-break team. Sogndal are looking very good, and if they find someone to improve their creativity in the upcoming transfer window, they could fight for promotion this season.
