Norwegian Eliteserien Kristiansund vs Haugesund Kristiansund are currently sitting in the danger zone. The team has picked up just 8 points from their 9 games and will be looking to improve. The main problem Kristiansund faces is creating and converting chances. 6 goal in 9 games is as simple as that – not god enough. The team looks to be in form at home though with 7 points from their overall 8 picked up at home. Interesting to note here is that all 4 games were below the 2.5 line. Last round Kristiansund fell to defeat against Valerenga. The team will feel disappointment as despite Valerenga territorial advantage Kristiansund created more and better chances. Still their problem up front cost them the points. The team missed a few very good chances while Valerenga scored from their only shot on target. Ghayas Zahid found Robert Lundström on the right unmarked and he put the ball into the back of the net with a diagonal shot for the minimal Valerenga victory. Haugesund sits on 11th place with 11 points from their first 9 games. The team so far looks to be rather inconsistent as their results range from goal bonanzas to goalless draws. We cannot also separate their home form from their away games as there is not yet any kind of tendency. Still most of their losses came on the road but the lack of draws ensured that the team has won more points away from home. Still recently the team recorded some games on the lower side in terms of goals. The previous round Haugesund lost at home to high flying Odd. The team played decently but fall to a 0-2 defeat after 2 outstanding goals from Espen Ruud. The full back first scored with a diagonal shot from the right after winger Riku Riski set him up with a good pass. His second goal came after halftime with a well-placed direct free kick. Haugesund managed to create a few really good chances in the second half but Odd’s keeper Myhra kept his clean sheet. Both teams are not on top of their form. The game could go either way so I’m aiming for the goal markets here. Both teams having low scoring games recently. 4 of Kristiansund last 6 games finished 0-0 at half time while Haugesunds record is 3. That makes 7 out of 12 games finishing 0-0 at half time. Therefore my pick here is under 1 goal line first half for 1.725 at Bet365. Good Luck!
