MOLDE – ROSENBORG
Let’s direct our attention to the Norwegian Eliteserien once again, because Molde are hosting the champion and current leader in the league Rosenborg. It’s 21 points which are separating the two teams in the table, which is saying a lot for the difference between them at the moment.
After winning the Eliteserien last year, now Rosenborg are once again looking unstoppable. They are 18 points ahead of Brann at the top of the league and now nobody thinks that they could lose the title. Kare Ingebrigtsen’s team lost just one game in 24 played rounds so far, conceiding just 16 goals in the process. These stats are showing you that Rosenborg’s biggest asset is their defense, which is almost unbreakable. They also have the best attack in the league, scoring 54 goals in just 24 games so far.
Molde on the other hand are still fighting for a place among the first three teams in the table and a chance to play some European football next year. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s boys are just three points behind the 3rd Odd, so nothing is lost just yet. Molde won just one point in their last two games and now they will have the difficult task to bounce back against the strongest team in the country. Before that Molde won four games in a row, which was a great run for Ole Gunnar Solskjær and his player. A run which allowed them once again to compete for the Top 3 in the Eliteserien.
In May the two teams met again and Rosenborg won with 3-1 at home, so it’s clear which is the better team at the moment. The standings are also speaking for themselves. But Molde is a dangerous team, which should not be underestimated, so Rosenborg will have to play with a full force, if they want to take the win from this one.
