Molde take on the visitors Sarpsborg 08 on Norwegian top league matchday 17. The game will be played at Aker Stadium on Saturday, July 23rd.
Molde suffering a slump as the hosting side is unable to win in four matches in a row since the end of May with only one points taken from these games. Such decline put the team only on seventh place in the league’s standings with 25 points and 30-27 goal difference after 16 games played. The team show their best football at home, having gained 17 points in eight matches with 18-8 aggregate score. However, the team failed to win any of last two home matches, losing to Viking, 0-1 and drawing with Start, 2-2.

Sarpsborg 08, in their turn, have gained quite solid condition in recent matches, recording 10 points in five matches with only one defeat (2-5 to Rosenborg on the road). The team has gained 25 points in 16 matches and have 20-20 goal difference, sharing 7th place of the league with today’s hosts. The team is quite inconsistent on the road, showing poor performance in defense, allowing 18 goals in eight matches with 10 goals scored and 10 points gained.
The reverse fixture earlier this season ended with 4-0 win of Molde. Today’s hosts are suffering a slump while Sarpsborg are showing mediocre results in away games and allowing quite a number of goals. The teams played a sparring one month ago that ended with 5-1 win of the 08 and we can expect to see another high-scoring result in this match.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals.
