Molde vs Valerenga
Norwegian Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 8 July 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Aker Stadion, Molde.

Molde produced the best performance of the season seven days ago when they stormed past the table-toppers forcing Brann’s first defeat of the campaign in the 15th round. It was a remarkably brilliant display from Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops who bagged as many as four goals in a demolishing victory over such a strong opposition.

Can they back it up and continue in the same fashion on Sunday evening when Molde and Valerenga are to close the day in the most interesting tie of the round at Aker Stadion?

Erling Haland will definitely remember the aforementioned victory over Brann as it saw him bag four goals to his side. Interestingly, the forward has only scored two in past 14 rounds. Nevertheless, Molde made it back-to-back demolishing victories after they had destroyed Stabaek 3-0 at home previously. Such rise in form saw them climb up to fourth in the Eliteserien standings.

Molde vs Valerenga: Head-to-head

  • Molde have a positive head to head record in matches with Enga.
  • Molde lead the tie by eight wins coming into 44th encounter with Valerenga.
  • Molde won 14 and lost only 5 of 21 home matches against Enga.
  • The clash played in late-April saw a goalless draw at Intility Arena.

Molde vs Valerenga: Prediction

Unlike the case is with their counterparts, Enga’s form has seen a huge slide over the last couple of weeks. The visitors are winless in last three league outings and they’ve conceded as many as five goals in last two matches against Rosenborg (three) and Bodo/Glimt (two). Given they’ll be up against the red-hot attacking line of Molde’s, it is really hard to go past the home win at the 1.75 odds.

Molde to score two or more goals in the match looks to be a banker beta t the odds of 1.61 based on everything written above.

Molde vs Valerenga: Bet Tips

  • Molde to win @ 1.75
  • Molde Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.61.
