Odd vs Molde
Date: Friday, 5 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Skagerak Arena (Skien).
With both Odd and Molde emerging as potential front runners in the competition so far, we can certainly expect the clash between the two sides on Friday to be nothing short of an exciting ninety minutes.
The home side are currently on an impressive winning streak on home soil and registered a very convincing 3-1 win against Haugesund in their last clash. Fredrik Nordkvelle broke the deadlock in the first half and completed his brace in the second but not before Torgeir Borven found the back of the net at the hour mark.
The squad managed five shots on target out of their attempted ten and also had eight corner kicks given their way, while their opponents managed just four in that aspect.
The visitors have been inconsistent on the road but will be coming into the clash on Friday on the back of a resounding 4-0 win against Stromsgodset in their last away match. Martin Elligsen opened the scoring in that game followed by Leke James, netting a hattrick in the span of fifteen minutes.
The squad made just six attempts at goal, out of which five were on target while four were in the back of the net.
The away team are currently at the helm of the table with twenty-five points, while the hosts are trailing by four points behind them on third. A win for the latter would see them edge closer to the tabletop while a win for the visitors would put even more daylight between the two sides.

Odd vs Molde Prediction
Although the recent head to head meetings between the two sides have seen the visitors coming out on top more often than the home team, the game on Friday is likely to see the hosts grab all three points.
The home team are yet to suffer a loss at home this season and have been registering wins without breaking much of a sweat. The squad have scored a total of nine goals in their last five home matches, and have conceded as little as two goals apart from registering three clean sheets to their name.
The visitors have been impressive at their home as well, but on the road, the story has been different. All three of their losses so far have come in their away games, with two of those defeats coming in their last five trips.
However considering that they did find the back of the net nine times, the game is likely to produce goals at each end, with the win almost certain to swing in favor of the hosts at the end of the ninety minutes.
