Tromsdalen vs FK Jerv, Thursday match for the Norwegian 1. Divisjon, at the Tuil Arena.
The Norwegian Football Championship – 2nd Division or OBOS-ligaen is the second national tournament in importance in Norwegian football. Prior to 2005, the name of the competition was First Division. The name changed because the main sponsor was another, Adecco.
Tromsdalen host FK Jerv at the Tuil Arena next Thursday, 6/6/2019.
Tromsdalen Ungdomsog Idrettslag, or simply Tromsdalen UIL, is a Norwegian football club founded on October 23, 1938. Its headquarters is located in Tromsø.
Tromsdalen are last in the league with just one point, having played nine games of which they had eight defeats and a draw. In the last five games they have always lost, they are desperate to win a game.
The number of goals scored per game (scored and conceded) for Tromsdalen is high, averaging 5.22 goals per game, and the percentage of Tromsdalen matches where the number of goals is above 2.5 is 89%. Which is very high, being the team in this league that has the highest percentage.
FK Jerv is a Norwegian football club founded in 1921. Its headquarters is in Grimstad.
FK Jerv is in twelfth in the league with eleven points. Of the matches played, they had two victories, five draws and two defeats. In the last five games had two draws, one defeat one win and one defeat, respectively.
The number of goals scored per game (scored and conceded) for Jerv is lower but still revealing, averaging 2.67 goals per game, and the percentage of Jerv games where the number of goals is above 2.5 is of 44%, which is quite reasonable being the team of this league that is in ninth in terms of percentage of games over 2.5 goals
So my prediction is that the game will end with more than 2.5 goals scored. I’d say it’s going to be over 3.5 for anyone who wants to risk a little more.
