Sandefjord vs Ranheim
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Wednesday, 11 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Komplett Arena (Sandefjord).
Sandefjord managed to recover from a demolishing 5-0 loss to Molde on the opening day by beating Start 1-4 on the road to clinch their first victory of the season. Nonetheless, they didn’t back it up in the third round playing only a 1-1 draw at home to the rock-bottomed Stabaek.
Can the team led by Magnus Powell grab their second win of the campaign on Wednesday evening when they host the newly promoted Ranheim side?
It should not be a one-way street for the hosts if we know that Ranheim made a super strong start to their first ever season in the top flight by beating Stabaek 4-1 at home in early April. Nonetheless, much like their counterparts, Ranheim showed the opposite face in the very following round. They fell 4-0 away at Tromso on Sunday and they won’t travel to Komplett Arena in the highest of spirits.
Michael Karlsen and Kristoffer Lokberg stole the show by bagging a brace each on Ranheim’s debut in the elite class. This duo without a doubt represent the major threat to Sandefjord’s goal in mid-week’s fixture.
The hosts barely saved the top-flight status last term, but they clinched most of their points on the home patch. The clash with the recently promoted Ranheim is a perfect occasion for them to get more points on the board at the start of the season.
