It has been six matches in their league schedule since Kristiansund has bagged all three points from a clash. They have only two wins from their ten fixtures until now and six of their 8 winless matches have ended as draws in their overall record.

At home, the host has been winless for the past three fixtures apart from their win from the opening home match at the start of the season.
The host has scored 10 goals in their four fixtures and has conceded only 6 goals. However, their defense has let down the guard causing them to lose the lead in the game.

They have scored only 4 goals and have conceded 10 goals in the same period. Two of their four losses away from home also saw them giving away clean sheets in the clashes.

Kristiansund vs Sandefjord Prediction
Kristiansund has been winless in their recent fixtures showing their troubles at the back with not keeping the lead in the game. Only two of their ten fixtures so far have ended in a goalless draw, and they have averaged 1.8 goals per match in the campaign until now.
Even so, the Owls have lost only two of their ten matches until now while Sandefjord has lost six clashes in the same period in their league schedule, putting them in a much worse form than the host. Their average scoring is below 1 goal per match and has conceded double of the goals they scored so far.
With such a poor away form, the odds will be against the visitors. From their h2h clashes, the tips for a BTTS and over 2.5 goals in the game seem to be probable bets for the ninety minutes. In the meantime, the home win in full-time will probably serve as the best bet for the punters.
