A Home advantage refers to the home team standing in a favoured position over the visiting outfit. This advantage proves useful in the psyche war between two teams with the home team having more experience in the venue, not to mention the cheers of their followers.
A perfect definition of Home Advatange can be seen in matches between Aalesund and Lillestrom. In their last 13 tiffs, the home team lost only once, which happened 4 years ago, ending in a 1-3 slate, Aalesund getting the worst of the encounter. Only 2 matches ended in a draw, both with a 1-1 card, while the other 10 matches saw the home team prevailing. In 2 of those 10 matches, the visiting teams scored only a single goal.
This Weekend, Aalesund will face Lillestrom at home. This time, the home advantage will definitely be defined once again.
My Pick: Home Win.
