The visiting Vålerenga side should be favourites in this visit to Sandefjord, as the away team holds a 12 point advantage from their 20 league games this season.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.
