Stabaek vs Molde
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 19 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Nadderud Stadion (Bekkestua).

Relegation-strapped Stabaek are going to take on Molde in the 19th round of Norwegian Eliteserien on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts cannot be proud of their results this season as they are sitting on the relegation playout spot having the same number of points as Start who are the first team below the red line. They’ve celebrated just three victories so far and only once in the last five rounds.

Henning Berg’s side has troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net more frequently, while their defending is one of the worst in the league. The only positive fact is that Stabaek are performing pretty tight at home ground and they’ve picked up almost all their points when playing in front of their fans.

Molde are in a very good streak lately as they haven’t suffered a defeat in the last five rounds of the competition. Including the Europa League qualifiers, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side haven’t lost in the last seven occasions.

This good streak launched them up to the 4th position and the visitors are now just five points behind the top spot. They are the most productive side in the competition while they improved their defending lately.

Stabaek vs Molde: Head-to-head

Molde celebrated four victories over their rivals and suffered just one defeat in the last five encounters.

We haven’t seen a draw for a while, and last time these two teams split the points was back in May 2016.

Stabaek vs Molde: Prediction

Molde are in an excellent streak and they should be able to keep up with good displays. Stabaek are going to have a tough challenge, but it is very likely that the visitors are going to get back home with all three points.

These two teams have been involved in high scoring matches lately in which both sides were capable of finding the back of the oppositions’ net. This one shouldn’t be much different, and the crowd is going to enjoy at least three goals in total.
