Sandefjord will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 2-1 Eliteserien defeat in their last game at the hands of Rosenborg BK.
The only name on the scoresheet from Sandefjord was Rufo Herraiz (80'). Kristoffer Zachariassen (15', 73') scored for Rosenborg BK.
It’s been seldom in recent times that Sandefjord have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Guttane have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 11 goals on the way.
After tasting defeat last time out to Bodo Glimt in Eliteserien competition, Mjøndalen will be aiming to make amends here.
For Mjøndalen, the goalscorers were Tonny Brochmann (58') and Vetle Dragsnes (83'). Philip Zinckernagel (24'), Victor Boniface (40') and Jens Hauge (57') scored for Bodo Glimt.
The numbers tell their own story, and Mjøndalen have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 11 goals overall. In defence, Mjøndalen could really do with shoring things up. However, we will just have to wait and see whether the trend shall persist in this upcoming match or not.
Going into this contest, Mjøndalen are without a win away from home in their last 2 league matches.
Head to head
The last league fixture between these sides was Eliteserien match day 19 on 07/08/2015 which finished with the scoreline of Sandefjord 2-1 Mjøndalen.
The referee was Ole Gya.
Team News: Sandefjord
Sandefjord boss Martí Cifuentes will be happy not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match thanks to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
It looks as if Guttane should kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system in the match, utilising Jacob Storevik, Anton Kralj, Marc Vales, Martin Kreuzriegler, Sander Moen Foss, Emil Palsson, Enric Valles, Kristoffer Normann Hansen, William Kurtovic, Vidar Ari Jonsson and George Gibson.
Team News: Mjøndalen
From a largely available squad, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Mjøndalen boss Vegard Hansen to be concerned with. Vamouti Diomande (Achilles tendon rupture) misses out for this game.
We reckon that Mjøndalen could decide to elect for a 5-3-2 lineup, giving starts to Sosha Makani, Alexander Betten Hansen, Markus Nakkim, Sondre Solholm Johansen, Quint Jansen, Vetle Dragsnes, Lars Olden Larsen, Dagur Dan Thórhallsson, Tonny Brochmann, Fredrik Brustad and Shuaibu Lalle Ibrahim.
We feel that Sandefjord will do well to be putting a goal past this Mjøndalen lineup who we think will likely score one, at least.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought 0-1 winning score for Mjøndalen at the end of this one.
It should be a good one.
