The Haugesund vs. Valerenga match will be played on Monday, August 13, at the Haugesund Stadium, Haugesund. This is the last match of Norwegian Eliteserien round 18. Haugesund is currently 3rd on the table with 31 points, while Valerenga is 9th on the table with 24 points at the moment.
In their previous ten meetings, Haugesund won three games, Valerenga had four wins, while three matches ended in a draw. We saw over 2.5 goals in their last three encounters.
Haugesund is in a great form this season. They didn't expect to fight for the place in European competitions, but they are third, with only five points less than second-placed Rosenborg at the moment. Haugesund is in a series of three victories, and they will try to extend that series against Valarenga. The last game they played against them at home was a goal fiesta - Haugesund won the match by 4:3! Haugesund should take advantage of their easier schedule - after Valerenga they will face Lillestrom and Stabaek, before they will play back-to-back matches against Rosenborg and the current leader Brann.
