Sandefjord won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 2-1 Eliteserien defeat last time out to SK Brann.

In that match, Sandefjord had 37% possession and 12 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. The scorer for Sandefjord was Sebastian Mathisen (95'). At the other end, Brann had 17 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Bård Finne (51') and Emil Kornvig (61') scored for SK Brann.

It has been seldom in recent games where Sandefjord have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Sandefjord have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 8 goals during that time. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, however.

Leading up to this clash, Sandefjord:

  • have not emerged victorious against Viking FK in their last 3 league matches.
  • are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches at home.

Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Lillestrøm SK in Eliteserien competition, Viking FK and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

In that match, Viking FK had 58% possession and 18 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. The scorer for Viking FK was Zlatko Tripić (68'). Lillestrom got 12 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Thomas Lehne Olsen (5'), Gjermund Åsen (8'), Eric Kitolano (38') and Erling Knudtzon (91') scored for Lillestrøm SK.

Viking FK have been good when going forward in their most recent fixtures, having scored 9 goals in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Viking FK have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 5 of those same clashes.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Viking FK:

  • haven't been beaten by Sandefjord when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

↔️ Head to head

A look at their most recent head-to-head clashes stretching back to 19/06/2021 shows that Sandefjord have won 2 of these games and Viking FK 3, with the number of draws standing at 1.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 23 in all which averages out at 3.83 goals per meeting.

The previous league meeting between these sides was Eliteserien match day 23 on 24/09/2023 when the final score was Viking FK 4-3 Sandefjord.

That day, Viking FK had 54% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 4 on target. The goals were scored by Yann-Erik de Lanlay (12'), Lars-Jørgen Salvesen (17', 53') and Samuel Adegbenro (85').

Sandefjord had 13 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Franklin Nyenetue (29'), Danilo Al-Saed (42') and Alexander Ruud Tveter (90') scored.

The match was refereed by Sigurd Kringstad.

🗞️ Team News: Sandefjord

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Sandefjord manager Hans Erik Ødegaard to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Marcus Melchior (unknown injury) won’t play.

It looks as if Guttane could go for a 4-3-3 system this time featuring Hugo Keto, F. Carson Pedersen, F. Tobias Berglie, Stian Kristiansen, Christopher Cheng, Loris Mettler, Filip Ottosson, Simon Amin, Jakob Masloe Dunsby, A. Ruud Tveter and Eman Markovic.

🗞️ Team News: Viking FK

Viking FK manager Bjarte Lunde Aarsheim has to currently contend with reduced team options. Kristoffer Løkberg (Broken ankle), Sondre Bjørshol (unknown injury) and Franco Lino (unknown injury) are not ready for selection.

We reckon that De mørkeblå seem most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 system, starting P. S. Gunnarsson, Herman Haugen, Gianni Stensness, Djibril Diop, Jost Urbancic, Patrick Yazbek, Sondre Auklend, Joe Bell, Peter Christiansen, L. Salvesen and Zlatko Tripic.

✨ Prediction

We’re of the view that Sandefjord are dangerous enough to breach the defence of this Viking FK side, but a single goal may not quite be enough.

We can see a close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Viking FK by the conclusion of the game. We are expecting it to be pretty even.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
