Molde vs Start
Norway Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Aker Stadion (Molde).

Molde sit in Eliteserien mid-table with 17 points earned in ten outings and a very unpredictable spell of form now behind them. They’ve finally ended a six-game winless streak in a home win over Stromsgodset last week but failed to build on it as they suffered yet another away loss on Monday – beaten by Ranheim 3-1.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men now look to bounce back at Aker Stadion as they host rock-bottomed Start and keep up with the top of the table, currently sitting four points behind 2nd placed Rosenborg and three behind 3rd placed Ranheim. Start should not be the same sort of a challenge in Molde and we could see them struggle to make an impact.

Indeed, the visitors don’t seem to have the same sort of firepower despite a narrow win over Bodo now behind them, as it came only after a 0-1 home loss to Brann and a 4-0 thrashing seen at Sarpsborg 08 in two games beforehand. They will now hope to put on more of a defensive display and hold their own but it’s tough to see them shut down Molde on the day.

Molde vs Start: Head-to-head

Start haven’t beaten Molde since November 2013, snatching a narrow 0-1 win at this ground.

Molde have bagged three wins and three draws since then, including a 2-2 thriller in their last clash in July 2017.

We’ve seen three or more goals in three of their last four head-to-head matchups.

We will now back Molde to turn another interesting matchup their way and outclass the struggling rivals, capitalizing on their troubled form away from home this term. We’ll go for a Home win at 1.50, which has been rated banker material by many value seekers already.
