The Eliteserien fixture at Consto Arena on Sunday will see home side Mjøndalen take on Sandefjord.
Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Mjøndalen v Sandefjord can be seen below - plus the latest betting odds.
Mjøndalen will be hoping to bounce back here following a 6-1 Eliteserien defeat in their last game at the hands of ODD Grenland.
The only name on the scoresheet from Mjøndalen was Tonny Brochmann (4'). Espen Ruud (6', 31'), Mushaga Bakenga (14', 34'), Elbasan Rashani (67') and Birk Risa (90') scored for ODD Grenland.
Mjøndalen have struggled with their forward play in more recent games. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 vs opposing sides during the course of their previous 6 outings. In those games, Mjøndalen have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 13.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Kristiansund in Eliteserien competition, Sandefjord and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Amahl Pellegrino (37', 85') was the scorer for Kristiansund.
Illustrating their predisposition for high-scoring encounters, the back of the net has been hit 22 times in the previous 6 matches in which Sandefjord have taken to the pitch, giving a mean average of 3.67 goals for each fixture. Opposing teams have got 13 of this grand total. Nonetheless, we must now wait to see whether that pattern might be maintained in this upcoming game.
Head to head
The last league game featuring these clubs was Eliteserien match day 10 on 26/07/2020 which ended up with the score at Sandefjord 1-0 Mjøndalen.
The referee was Svein Oddvar Moen.
Team News: Mjøndalen
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Mjøndalen manager Vegard Hansen to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy group. Vamouti Diomande (Achilles tendon rupture) is sidelined.
It looks as if Mjøndalen may well kick off with a 3-5-2 formation for the game, utilising Sosha Makani, Joackim Solberg, Quint Jansen, Markus Nakkim, Vetle Dragsnes, Sondre Liseth, Stian Semb Aasmundsen, Lars Olden Larsen, Alexander Betten Hansen, Shuaibu Lalle Ibrahim and Tonny Brochmann.
Team News: Sandefjord
Thanks to a completely healthy squad to choose from, Sandefjord manager Martí Cifuentes doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
We’re of the thinking that Guttane will likely begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 system, choosing Jacob Storevik, Brice Wembangomo, Lars Markmanrud, Marc Vales, Martin Kreuzriegler, Emil Palsson, Enric Valles, Kristoffer Normann Hansen, Rufo, William Kurtovic and Sivert Gussias.
We’re envisaging that Sandefjord will have a tough ask to score goals against this Mjøndalen outfit who should manage to score & go ahead.
We therefore see a highly competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Mjøndalen when all is said and done.
There should be little in it.
