Stromsgodset vs Molde
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 22 June 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion (Drammen).
The top spot of Molde is under assault. They may have a lead of three points, but take note that the team has played two extra games than the second-placed Odd. It was fortunate that the four-game winning streak of the latter came to an end the last day, while the current topper was going through a bad patch.
The contender Odd has another tough fixture coming up, while the pole-position-holder is taking on a relegation battler. This game is a must-win for the potential champions.
Stromsgodset has posted just two wins so far in the league and is one spot away from becoming the dead-last team in league standings. It’s embarrassing to note that they could afford to avoid the last spot only with two extra matches.
Their last tie saw them defending almost for an hour before their backline fell to concede two goals. One of them was an own goal, and it surely did hurt the psyche of the players.
