Molde vs Stromsgodset: Preview and Predictions

Molde vs Stromsgodset
Norwegian Eliteserien
Date: Wednesday, 16th May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Aker Stadion, Molde.

The opening of new Eliteserien campaign was a bit disappointing for Molde and their fans. This side was marked as one of the top candidates to challenge Rosenborg for the title, but managed to collect only 14 points from nine matches. They are currently 6th but potential victory against Stromsgodset would make the standings so much better. Bookmakers are offering very slim chances to the visitors to escape Aker Stadion with a point or three.

Led by a legendary striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Molde have had a good start of new term in Norway. They won four out of the opening six clashes, but the decline in form started right after that. Now, Molde are winless for five games in a row.

As for their opposition, Stromsgodset are currently 12th with nine points. The current record on the road is one victory, one draw and two defeats, with total goal difference of 7-7. The average number of goals seen in their away days is exactly at 3.50 per duel.

Molde vs Stromsgodset: Head-to-head

Four out of the last five head to head meetings between Molde and Stromsgodset had two or less goals total. The last time hosts celebrated a win in this stadium was in May 2016.

Stromsgodset were the away team in 15 occasions and secured only three victories, while losing eight encounters.

Molde vs Stromsgodset: Prediction

Even though the odds are suggesting that Molde should be ahead, Stromsgodset have been consistent in the last couple of weeks. That can’t be said for the hosts. There is good value in backing the draw or away win double chance at 5/6. The last h2h match was played at this stadium as well and there were no goals.

Besides the positive outcome for the visitors, I also expect a low scoring affair. Under 2.5 in the goals market is without a doubt the best bet available.

Molde vs Stromsgodset: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.00
  • Draw or away win @ 1.83.
