Erik Brenden (64') scored for Sandefjord.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where Mjøndalen haven’t conceded. The reality is that Mjøndalen have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 10 goals in the process. That sort of pattern might not be carried forward into this next game, though.

For ODD Grenland, the goalscorers were Tobias Lauritsen (11') and Espen Ruud (37'). Simen Nordli (18') and Hólmbert Aron Friðjónsson (90' Own goal) scored for Aalesunds FK.

The referee was Trygve Kjensli.
Team News: Mjøndalen
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Mjøndalen gaffer Vegard Hansen to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Vamouti Diomande (Achilles tendon rupture) is sidelined.
It seems likely that Mjøndalen could make use of the 4-4-2 system for the game featuring Sosha Makani, Vetle Dragsnes, Sondre Solholm Johansen, Markus Nakkim, Alexander Betten Hansen, Lars Olden Larsen, Joackim Solberg, Stian Semb Aasmundsen, Tonny Brochmann, Shuaibu Lalle Ibrahim and Fredrik Brustad.
Team News: ODD Grenland
Due to a fully healthy squad available to select from, ODD Grenland manager Jan Nornes has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash.
There’s a good chance that Oddrane seem likely to make use of a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Sondre Løvseth Rossbach, Espen Ruud, Steffen Hagen, Odin Luras Björtuft, Birk Risa, Vebjørn Hoff, Fredrik Nordkvelle, Joshua Kitolano, Markus André Kaasa, Mushaga Bakenga and Elba Rashani.
In our opinion, ODD Grenland and Mjøndalen should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very even match with a score draw at the end of the 90.
