The visitors finished the previous season four points adrift of the danger area. They are as many as eight away from the safe zone hallway through this campaign, meaning only a miracle could save Guttane from the drop into the second class of the Norwegian football at the end of the year.

Unsurprisingly, Sandefjord made the managerial change after clinching only 6 points from 16 rounds. The Spanish manager Marti Cifuentes will thus make his debut on the bench here against Valerenga in the capital.

Valerenga vs Sandefjord: Head-to-head

The head to head stats also speak in Valerenga’s favour.

The hosts won 14, drew 1 and lost just 4 of 19 head to head meetings with Guttane.

However, Sandefjord won two of last three meetings with Enga (two wins from the previous term of Eliteserien).

Valerenga came on top when the teams met in mid-May this year, 0-1 at Komplett Arena.

Valerenga vs Sandefjord: Prediction

Sandefjord come into this off the back of a humiliating streak of 11 defeats and a draw in last 12 matches in all competitions (11 league games and 1 cup affair). They scored a goal in only 3 of these 12 outings. It is really hard to predict any other scenario but the home win here knowing also that Enga dominated this match-up historically.

Enga are 1.40 to win the match which can be considered a banker bet according to the aforementioned circumstances. Since the visitors have really struggled to produce in the final third ever since the start of the season, we will alternatively back Valerenga to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.20.
