Motivational home win on the cards. Fredrikstad is not yet safe from relegation worries, and Kongsvinger are safe in the play off zone, looking forward to the cup semifinal on Thursday.
I am pretty sure Kongsvinger will not take huge chances in trying to win this game, as they got a historic chance in the cup against out of form Stromsgodset on Thursday.
Fredrikstad had a huge upturn in form after Mons Ivar Mjelde took over as coach in late July, saving them likely from relegation. Home stats is 6-3-5, but when Mjelde took over, they have won 4 and lost 1 home game, improving the stats greatly.
Kongsvinger are in very good form, 1 loss in last 12 (!), and got a good chance of winning the playoffs in my opinion. Great coach in Porteguese Pimenta.
Still, the motivation aspect will rest havily on the outcome of this match, and I am with the home side here.
