Molde vs Odds Ballklubb
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Aker Stadion (Molde).
Two teams at the top of the table will meet this Saturday. The hosts are trying to close in on toppers Bodo/Glimt, but things are not going in their favor at present. They are currently on a two-match losing streak which makes it three defeats in four league games. The reigning champions need to win consecutively and hope the toppers lose some of theirs to get back in the title race.
Oddrane is on a five-game winning streak currently in the league. This has pushed them up to the third position but still has a long way to get to the top.
Molde vs Odds BK: Head-to-head (h2h)
- All three previous head to head games were back to back draws.

- In four of those five games, both sides found the back of the net.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five matches as well.
- Both sides have two wins each in their five previous games here.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those games at this ground.
- All four of those clashes also had goals at both ends of the field.
Molde vs Odds BK Prediction
This could be one of the closest games of the season. Both sides are on top form, but the hosts are under pressure due to consecutive defeats. Except for the defeat to Brann they have not lost in seven of their previous eight home fixtures in all competitions. The visitors have won four of their five previous matches on the road as well. So this could turn out to be a draw this weekend.
Another trend that can be found in their recent meetings is that both of them have scored in the majority of those games. One of the main reasons for Molde winning the title last year was their powerful attacking unit. They have found 41 goals already but have conceded in consecutive games recently. I think Oddrane will take advantage of that weakness and score as well. So I am backing the match to draw with both sides getting goals.
