Sandefjord vs Molde Prediction & Match Preview

Sandefjord vs Molde
Norway Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 12 June 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Sandefjord Arena.

Sandefjord haven’t started the season and they are expected to struggle against Mode, who are also looking to bounce back to winning ways after dropping points in the last 2 games.

Starting the campaign on a 0-3 defeat to Mjondalen, Sandefjord seem to get back on track with a 3-1 win over Tromso.

But back-to-back losses to Rosenborg and Valerenga in the next two games left them with 3 defeats in 4 games and pushed them to the edge of relegation zone.

Molde on the other hand started off with a solid 2-0 win over Kristiansund, then held by Tromso in the high scoring 3-3 thriller before unleashing the wrath in the 4-0 win and 3-2 win against Brann and Rosenborg respectively.

But some schoolboy style defending cost them the lead and an eventual defeat at home versus Valerenga before failing to create anything substantial in the goal-less draw against Mjondalen.

Molde are one of the title contenders of Eliteserien this season and they are currently 4th on the log with 11 points, 3 behind Rosenborg and 2 behind Bodo/Glimt.

Sandefjord vs Molde Head-to-head

Sandefjord celebrated a rare double against Molde last season beating them 2-1 at this stadium and 1-0 in the away leg. This ended Molde’s long standing 8 match unbeaten run that saw 6 wins and 2 draws.

At this ground, all 7 head-to-head meetings saw both teams scoring and all except one produced over 2.5 goals.

Meanwhile, over 3.5 goals are seen in 5 games.

Sandefjord vs Molde Prediction

Molde have been scoring heavily this season until halted by Mjondalen and we must consider this as a one-off incident.

At the same time, their defense has not been solid as in the previous seasons and we have already seen over 3.5 goals in 4 of their 6 matches this season.

Sandefjord are struggling badly, especially their defense is consistently all over the park and only a swift improvement can save them against a team like Molde.
