Team News: Mjøndalen
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Mjøndalen gaffer Vegard Hansen to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group of players. Vamouti Diomande (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t play.
It’s our opinion that Mjøndalen look set to make use of the 4-4-2 system for the game, utilising Sosha Makani, Vetle Dragsnes, Sondre Solholm Johansen, Markus Nakkim, William Sell, Tonny Brochmann, Christian Gauseth, Stian Semb Aasmundsen, Lars Olden Larsen, Shuaibu Lalle Ibrahim and Fredrik Brustad.
Team News: Kristiansund
In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Kristiansund boss Christian Michelsen to be concerned about. Sean McDermott (Thumb Injury) won’t be playing here.
We reckon that KBK might play in a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting Eirik Johansen, Aliou Coly, Christophe Psyche, Dan Peter Ulvestad, Christoffer Aasbak, Erlend Sivertsen, Andreas Hopmark, Faris Pemi Moumbagna, Olaus Jair Skarsem, Amin Askar and Bendik Bye.
Kristiansund and Mjøndalen should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner. Will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a close game with a 1-1 score draw when all is said and done.
