Big Saturday Multiple: Fredrikstad looking for hat-trick of home wins

15Jun 2013


Jonno Turner previews action in Norway, Belarus and Sweden as he looks for profit in his Big Saturday Multiple...

We're off to Norway for our first pick of this three team multiple - as Fredrikstad host Mjondalen in Ostfold County, looking to extend their impressive recent home form.

Lars Bakkerud's side go into this one with two consecutive home wins under their belt, and in the bigger picture, that makes just one loss in five on their own patch, which will boost morale down at the Fredrikstad Stadium.

The hosts have smashed a whopping 13 goals in their opening five games in front of their own fans, and with two clean sheets from their last two suggesting that their defence is in cracking form too, it will take a very well drilled away side to leave their patch with a positive result.

Mjondalen travel to this game sitting 11th in the second tier, and are just five points outside of the relegation places after 11 encounters.

Boss Vegard Hansen will be keen for his side to arrest a slump which has seen them lose four of their last five league outings, but with just two goals scored in that time, and nine shipped, the Buskerud side look to be somewhat out of sorts of late.

The last time these two sides met, Fredrikstad ran out 5-2 winners - and I fancy the hosts to take maximum points here, too.

Bet 1: Fredrikstad (HOME) @ 1.8


Over to Belarus for our next selection - as third placed Gomel welcome Dnepr Mogilev to the Stadyen Central'ny.

The hosts are in excellent form ahead of this game, and just one loss from their last 10 league encounters will give them much confidence of securing another win here.

Aleksey Merkulov's side have taken maximum points from their last three consecutive games on their own patch, and that suggests that they have made their home into something of a fortress.

Three clean sheets from their last four in front of their own fans indicates that Merkulov has assembled a well-drilled outfit, and with just seven points separating the Green and Whites from top spot, they will be desperate for a positive result here.

Visitors Dnepr Mogilev, on the other hand, come into this one without a win in four outings - and that leaves them languishing in ninth place in the Belarusian Premier League.

Vyacheslav Geraschenko's charges have lost three of their last four league clashes, and have not won in half a dozen outings away from the Spartak Stadion - a poor run which will have knocked confidence in the away camp.

Worse still, just one goals scored in five on the road indicates that the Blues are severely lacking in the final third - and I think that could be a key difference between these two sides.

Bet 2: FK Gomel (HOME) @ 1.9


And finally - over to Sweden for our last pick of the day, as Kvarnsvedens face Skiljebo in Division Two.

The home side go into this clash sitting fifth in the table, and their recent form reflects that positive league position - with just one loss from 12 underlining just how difficult to beat Bengt Ottosson has made his side.

Thirteen goals smashed in their last six home outings indicates that the Borlange side have more than enough in the final third to punish their opponents, and they will be looking to make home advantage count here.

Visitors Skiljebo line up for this encounter in miserable form, and have won just one of their last 11 outings - losing their last four on the bounce.

That leaves the Vasteras side sitting bottom of the table, with just four points from their opening nine league outings this campaign - and boss Jonny Rodlund will be feeling the pressure of that slump.

Nine goals shipped in four games indicates that the visitors have weaknesses in their back line, and just two scored at the other end in five does not bode well for the away side.

Bet 3: Kvarnsvedens (HOME) @ 1.69
