Kristiansund – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Owls" finished only fourth in Norway's second division last year. However, they managed to win the playoff and advance to the Eliteserien, where they are now trying to stay.

The newcomer started well with a 3-2 victory over Lillestrøm. In the first six rounds, they only suffered one loss, also securing a 1-0 win over Tromsø. However, they then faced four losses combined with a 2-2 draw against Brann. Only Sarpsborg was beaten 3-1. After the break, they played a 1-1 draw with Odd, which already seemed like a success.

Fredrikstad – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Aristocrats" also moved up from the second league at the end of 2023, and they were the champions at that level. Their performance in the Eliteserien has been more than expected.

After a 0-2 loss in the first round to Bodø/Glimt, the newcomer went unbeaten, with the streak reaching nine matches in a row, including five consecutive wins. They only stumbled at the end of spring: draws with Tromsø at home, a draw at Rosenborg's field, and a 0-3 loss to Tromsø away.
