Sogndal vs Molde: Preview and Prediction

Sogndal vs Molde:
Norwegian Tippeligaen
Date: Saturday, 9 July 2016
Kick-off: 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Fosshaugane Campus (Sogndal).

Sogndal look to continue their unbeaten run in Norwegian Tippeligaen when they host a struggling Molde on Saturday evening.

After an inconsistent start to their season campaign, the minnows Sogndal had managed to avoid defeats in their last 7 league matches, winning 2 and drawing 5. They are currently 9th in the league standings with 18 points from 14 matches. The 1-0 away win at Stabaek last weekend is only their fourth win of the season. With 6 draws so far this season, they are a team capable of frustrating any opponent.

Molde are coming on the back of two consecutive defeats, the latest a 1-0 home loss to Viking last weekend. This also recorded their third loss in four games and are dropped to 6th place in the league table with 24 points from 14 games. They are particularly poor away from home and haven’t won in any of their last four, losing 3 and drawing 1.

Sogndal vs Molde: Head-to-Head Stats

Molde had won in 16 of the last 28 meetings against Sogndal, including friendlies, while drawing 6 and losing 6.

Their last meeting in the league was on October 2014, Molde won 1-0 at Sogndal.

Molde are on a three match winning streak against Sogndal in the league and are unbeaten in the last 6 including friendlies, which includes 5 wins and a draw.

Sogndal vs Molde: Predictions

Molde’s current form is a bit of a worry and Sogndal with their recent exploits will be fancying their chances against the stronger opponent. Despite not managing a single win against Molde in the last six meetings, Sogndal will be coming this the confidence to take something out of this match.

Molde had conceded heavily on the road lately which stands at 12 goals from the last 4. While, Sogndal had played out 2-2 draws in their last two home games and I believe this match will be a high scoring one.

A draw is the most probable outcome of this fixture as none of these sides are in particularly good form. I will be backing both teams to score, but over 2.5 goals is my preferred tip for this game.
