Tip Reasoning

These are bleak times for Sandefjord fans. They find their team propping up the division and showing little sign of getting out of their current mess. It’s certainly a good time for Haugesunds to be heading to the Komplett Arena and they will travel with three points at the forefront of their minds.

Sandefjord are in the midst of an eight game losing streak in all competitions and it really has been a disastrous campaign on and off the pitch. Their managerial saga has seen three managers depart since the end of last season alone. Former Premier League midfielder Lars Bohinen left of his own accord in December, Swede Magnus Powell was sacked in April and the latest incumbent Martí Cifuentes faces a tough challenge trying to turn this mess around.

This will be his first game at the helm so there is some hope he could get a reaction but you wonder whether that will be the case given the amount of chopping and changing that has already gone on. He inherits a side that has lost 8 straight matches and 7 consecutive games to nil. Clearly confidence will be at rock bottom with Sandefjord having failed to score since April.

They average just 0.33 points per home game, the worst record in the division so Haugesunds will certainly believe this game is there to be won. The visitors are having a decent campaign and could move into 3rd with victory. They’ve won 7 of their last 10 in all competitions with their only defeat in that period coming against Norwegian giants Rosenborg, so there is precious little wrong with how they are playing right now.

The huge contrast in form suggests backing an Away Win is the way to go here. Haugesunds have a useful 50% away win ratio this term so they’ve generally been getting the job done on their travels and only two sides in the division can better their average of 1.83 points per game away.

Going for Haugesunds to Win to Nil also looks good, given Sandefjord have developed a real habit of losing to nil over the past month or so. 58% of their league matches this term have seen them defeated without scoring and this looks like another strong candidate for a repeat of that. Already they look like a side destined to drop out of the Norwegian top flight.
