Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Kristiansund will be looking to put an end to their six-game winless run in the Eliteserien when they host Sandefjord at their Kristiansund Stadion. Christian Michelsen’s troops showed character in a 1-1 draw with Brann at the weekend, with the team scoring a late equalizer to save one point from the match. Kristiansund’s displays seem to be better than their results, and it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win the midweek clash.
Ireland goalkeeper Sean McDermott remains in the recovery room for the hosts. Sandefjord, on the other hand, proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Mjondalen, with the team quickly bouncing back from a 2-1 loss to Rosenborg. Seeing that Marti Cifuentes’ troops continue with their habit of struggling on the travels (four consecutive defeats), we are tempted to put our money on Kristiansund.
