Molde vs Rosenborg
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 20 June 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Aker Stadion (Molde)

The reigning champs will be starting their home season against this tough opposition. They are already at the top of the table winning the opener with a huge 1-4 margin against Aalesund. Even with the win, the team has to improve much on their defending. Last season also they gave away an average of a goal per game but they were lucky with a 14 point lead at the top.

Rosenborg is the record champions of the Norwegian elite division with 26 titles. But their dream of a hat trick of titles was shattered by Molde last year. The visitors finished third in the table with over 16 points between them and the champs. They started this season with a goalless draw against Kristiansund at home.

Molde vs Rosenborg: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Rosenborg has three wins and two defeats in the last 5 meetings against this opposition.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those five games.
  • In the last 5 head to head games at this ground, the host has won three and lost two.
  • Three of those games here also had more than 2.5 goals.
  • The hosts have kept clean sheets in three of those matches as well.

Molde vs Rosenborg: Prediction

These are two of the most successful clubs in the country. Both sides won their corresponding home matches last season. Likewise, Molde was the best home side in the competition as they never lost a game here. They scored 41 of their 68 points at this ground and have never lost at home for over a year. So it is safe to assume that Rosenborg will not win here on Saturday.

Whenever these two met in the recent past there was no shortage of goals. The three recent head to head clashes at this ground saw both of them score and over 2.5 goals too. Molde has scored over 70 goals last season and the visitors have also netted more than 50 goals in 30 matches last time around. So we can be sure of goals from both teams this weekend.
