Sandefjord vs Molde by 20Legend

Sandefjord stood absolutely no chance in their game against Viking (2-0) last weekend either. They got totally outplayed in the first half, and the score could and should have been 4-0/5-0 before half-time. Both time and form are against Sandefjord at the moment with 1-1-3 in their last five games. it is already six points up to the safe spot, but their activity on deadline day is not helpful giving their situation. It has been some speculation around their best player this season, and minutes before the window closed, striker Pal Alexander Kirkevold (21/8) was sold to the Danish club Hobro. This is truly weakening and already weak side, but it also means that others have to step forward and the work effort must be even higher in every game. Their home form has also been bad naturally with 3-2-6 so far. They have done another special move on the transfer market by bringing in midfielder, Martin Andresen, a 38-year old retired midfielder who is supposed to. Having experience as the captain of Stabaek and Brann in addition to being coach of Valerenga some seasons ago, he will have a lot of experience to offer. It is difficult to tell how he will have an impact in terms of playing, but this can be a leader in the dressing room at least, getting the players to think different.

1st keeper Jakob Busk (7 games) and defenders Alexander Gabrielsen (11/2), and Yaw Ihle Amankwah (5/0) are missing out, while midfielders Erik Mjelde (19/4), Cheikhou Dieng (21/1) are back from suspensions. Defender Lars Grorud (1/0) is getting closer to the pitch after his injury and could make the squad for this match.

Molde has not been anyway near the level from the previous seasons this year. It has been a lot of things that has not worked out. Their form away from home, their ability to play on natural grass, but first and foremost; it has been the key-players’ form and attitude. A change of coach has also been taken, which has not been any needed situation over the last years for the club. Their budget and squad should definitely be doing a lot better than just an 8th place at the table and nine points up to the 3rd place with eight rounds to go. It has therefore been a huge relief for them to qualify into the group stage in Europa League. It is almost impossible to understand why, when thinking of their performances in the domestic league this season, but it also says a lot about where the players have been focusing.

Strikers Fredrik Guldbransen (0/0) Mushaga Bakenga (0/0), defender Magne Simonsen (1/0) and winger Joshua Gatt (1/0) are all missing.

Molde is the favorites tonight given the condition that Sandejord is in at the moment. However, Molde has no chance of getting any medal in Tippeligaen this season with a gap of nine points up to 3rd place Viking. This is where the hope lays for Sandefjord in order to get something out of this match. It is going to be tough though, having sold Pal Alexander Kirkevold and the question will be if their collective performances are good enough to score goals against an opponent like Molde. This is a game that could go either way for the home side. One; they conceding early – loses faith and loses by a big margin, or two; they manage to take advantage of an unfocused Molde with their collective effort in these hard times. Weak teams always make some results when the season is about to end in football. Sandefjord does actually have the chance scoring tonight, even if they should be unlucky in terms of getting points.

    duke: Yes, I back both of your options. Sandefjord will try to keep a clean sheet at first. That must be their target in order to not conceed an early goal. However, the game will be more open as the first half evolves, and Molde should have most of possession and produce chances, while Sandefjord will be smart and wait for the right moment to attack, just like they did agaisnt Rosenborg some rounds ago. Thereforre, BTTS and over 2.5 goals should also be good picks.
