Mjondalen vs Sandefjord
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Consto Arena, Mjondalen.
Battle of Eliteserien strugglers is on this Sunday as Mjondalen welcomes Sandefjord. Both teams are in a very rough spot on the table and their fans are seriously worried because of potential relegation.
Mjondalen just entered the elite division this year, but won only four out of 16 games. They are also very shy when it comes to offense (scored 13 goals, lowest in the league), so changes are needed fast.
As for the opposition, Sandefjord are two positions and two points ahead of their Sunday’s hosts with slightly better goal difference. It’s also interesting to mention that both teams have collected six out of possible 15 points from the last five encounters.
Mjondalen vs Sandefjord Head-to-head
There were 16 duels between these two teams in the past, but only four of them in the Eliteserien. Sandefjord are leading 7-4 in terms of victories.
The total number of goals scored in those duels is 56, which averages 3.50 per duel. Only two out of the last six matches ended Over 2.5 FT though, so don’t rely on these stats too much.
Sandefjord defeated Mjondalen in the first meeting this campaign 1-0 FT. That match was played in late July and the only goal was scored by Erik Brenden.
Mjondalen vs Sandefjord Prediction
Mjondalen’s team spirits went through roof after beating Haugesund and Brann consecutively in mid-August.
However, they fell apart in upcoming weeks, losing to Rosenborg 0-2 FT and Odd Grenland 1-6 FT. As mentioned above, the team is having extremely hard time to be creative and score goals. They found the net only five times at this turf.
Their opponents Sandefjord are one of the most open squads in the league on their away days. There were 28 goals scored in their 11 away matches, none of them ending as a draw.
We don’t think hosts have the quality to compete in top flight. They are forced to open up and chase points on Sunday, which should leave plenty of space for Sandefjord. Away win is our recommended value bet.
