Kristiansund vs Molde
Date: Thursday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Kristiansund Stadion (Kristiansund).
Kristiansund and Molde take on each other in the derby of the Matchday in Eliteserien on Thursday evening. The clash has prospects of producing a genuine thriller as both teams are flying high coming into the contest.
Molde are currently the main favourites for the title. They won six, drew one and lost one of eight league matches so far (18-6 goal difference) and are three points clear off Odd in second. Given Rosenborg’s (last term champions) dreadful kick off to the new season, we can hardly find a team capable of preventing Molde from clinching their fourth Eliteserien trophy.
Nevertheless, MFK will come across a serious challenge on Thursday when they are to battle red-hot Kristiansund in the 9th round of the competition. The hosts won three on the spin in the league and they’ve climbed up to fifth place as a consequence.
Kristiansund vs Molde: Head-to-head
Molde have a positive head to head record against Uglan.
The visitors lead the tie by four wins coming into 16th clash with Kristiansund.
Teams met each other in a pre-season friendly in February this year (a 2-2 draw).
Each outfit snatched a home win in two H2H games in the previous term of Eliteserien.
Kristiansund vs Molde: Prediction
Kristiansund were extremely tough to break down recently. They kept four clean sheets in past five outings across competitions. Christian Michelsen’s men head into this on the back of three subsequent 1-0 wins. The latest came on Sunday when Uglan dispatched Sarpsborg 0-1 on the road.
Molde boast league’s best defensive record with just six goals conceded in eight rounds. They also notched competition high 18 goals at the same time and they go into this off the back of five consecutive victories.
Kristiansund are yet to concede a goal on the home pitch. They won two and drew one of three league ties in their backyard (3-0 goal difference). They kept their net untouched in the previous home clash against Molde as well (a 1-0 win). Under 2.5 goals FT is definitely the best betting option you can take form this match.
