Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Buoyed by back-to-back Norwegian Cup wins over Bjarg (5-0) and Fana (3-0), Brann will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Sandefjord on Matchday 15. The Reds regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, but they continue to struggle in the national championship. Brann have recorded no more than one win in the new Eliteserien campaign, but the game against Sandefjord could be the turning point for the relegation-threatened team.
A man to watch in the home team will be Denmark international Daniel Pedersen, who scored a brace in the triumph over Fana. Sandefjord, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Lillestrom in their last league match. The Whalers are stuck in the middle of the standings, and seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on the Reds. Defender Lars Markmanrud remains in the recovery room for the visiting team.
