Bodo/Glimt vs Sandefjord prediction, odds & betting tips – 29/05/2024

The Eliteserien leaders Bodo/Glimt play host to struggling Sandefjord on Wednesday night and we're expecting the goals to flow at the Aspmyra Stadion.

The last time these two sides met they produced a seven-goal thriller which Bodo/Glimt won 4-3 in October and the hosts head into this game as the clear favourite with the bookmakers.

Player to watch – Albert Gronbaek

Albert Gronbaek signed for Bodo/Glimt from Danish side AGF in 2022 and has already become a fan favourite for the Norwegian club.

The 23-year-old scored nine league goals in 28 starts last season and has already scored seven times in ten starts of the 2024 campaign, so there is every chance that Gronbaek will reach double figures this time around.

The Danish midfielder top scores for Bodo/Glimt

The Risskov-born midfielder is in great form right now with five goals in his last four outings in the Eliteserien and as we're predicting the goals to flow on Wednesday night, we also expect Gronbaek to add to his goals tally.
