Molde vs Viking
Date: Monday, 20 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Aker Stadion (Molde).
Molde will get a nice chance to rebound from a 3-2 loss at Kristiansund on Monday evening when they play host to recently-promoted Viking in the last game of the Matchday at Aker Stadion. MFK still hold the very top of the standings, but are now level on points with second-placed Odd. They are impeccable in front of the home crowd with four wins in four league games this season (11-1 goal difference).
Erling Moe has a deadly line-up of attackers led by Ohi Omoijuanfo and Magnus Eikrem who notched six goals apiece and are joint top-scorers in the entire competition after nine matches. Can they inspire another victory which would keep Molde at the top of the standings after the weekend?
Molde vs Viking: Head-to-head
It’s been two years since these two sides last played each other.
Molde earned the domestic double on Viking via two separate 3-2 wins in the 2018 Eliteserien campaign.
Viking were more successful historically as they lead the tie by three wins ahead of 47th clash against De Morkebla.
Molde vs Viking: Prediction
Viking spent just one year in the second division of Norwegian football. They returned this season and look determined to stay here for longer than a year based on a promising kick off to the campaign. The head coach Bjarne Berntsen can be particularly satisfied with his men’s recent defensive displays as De Morkebla kept back-to-back clean sheets in last two league games (a goalless draw at Stromsgodset and a 3-0 victory over Stabaek).
Can the visitors keep hold of the deadliest attacking line in the league on Monday? We have to say Viking played much better in front of the home crowd so far in the season. They lost two and drew one of past three away games.
Molde are too strong for Viking at the moment and we would be surprised to see anything other than a victory for the home side here.
