Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there is just a single fitness issue for the Sogndal boss Tore André Flo to be concerned with. Daniel Gjerde Saetren (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
We’ve got the feeling that Sogndal certainly have the ability to find the back of the net against this Fredrikstad FK side, although that is unlikely to be enough to avoid defeat.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 victory for Fredrikstad FK at full-time. Hopefully this is a good one.
