Odd Prediction – Can Odd maintain their 100% record?

Following their heavy 3-0 defeat away at 2nd placed Bodo/Glimt last time out in the Eliteserien, Odd will be relieved to be returning to home surroundings on Friday night.

That loss to Bodo/Glimt saw Odd swap places with their top three rivals, Bodo, and Odd face another tough task against Molde in this clash too.

That makes it two away defeats on the trot for Odd, but they’ll head back to their Skagerak Arena where they’ll be hoping they can extend their 100% winning record.

Odd have made an excellent start to their Norwegian top flight campaign on home soil as their record of 6-0-0 12/4 emphasises.

Wins over Brann, Kristiansund, Viking, Stromsgodset, Ranheim and Haugesund will no doubt see Odd in confident mood in bouncing back with a win here.

But it’s not just this season which has seen Odd a dominant force in their own backyard; the hosts possess a solid record at home for some time now.

The home side have won 10 of their last 13 matches at their Skagerak Arena, scoring in 12 of these 13 matches as well.

Molde Prediction – Can Molde extend lead at top of Eliteserien?

Molde also head into this encounter in reasonably good form as the visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches overall.

This loss was a 2-1 defeat away at Tromso, but recent wins against Viking, Ranheim and Stromsgodset have helped maintain their lead at the top of the Elieteserien.

The visitors currently sit top of the Norwegian top flight with a 3-point cushion over 2nd placed Bodo/Glimt who face a tricky looking trip to Valerenga this Friday night.

6 of Molde’s total of 9 league wins so far in this season’s Norwegian top flight campaign have been recorded on home turf at their Aker Stadion.

They still remain undefeated at home but although they made a poor start to the season away from home, Molde are turning things around on the road.

Molde have won 3 of their last 5 matches on their travels, a run that includes wins at Lillestrom, Haugesund and Stromsgodset.

However, the league leaders are also susceptible to conceding goals away from home too, and this is underlined in their last 15 results on the road.

12 of Molde’s last 15 away matches have seen both teams score.


Key-Facts – Odd v Molde

  • Odd possess a 100% winning record at home in the Eliteserien
  • Odd have scored in 12 of their last 13 home matches as well
  • 12 of Molde’s last 15 away matches have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Odd hold a 100% winning record at home while Molde can score and concede in equal measure – both teams to score here looks likely.
