Sarpsborg Preview – Can the home team avoid a third straight loss?

Sarpsborg made a strong start to their season, winning three and drawing one of four after beginning with a disappointing 1-0 home loss to Viking. Stefan Billborn’s troops beat Kristiansund, Tromso and Odd Grenland and drew with Rosenborg.

Since that win over Odd, Sarpsborg have suffered back-to-back defeats to Lillestrom and Aalesund. Those losses have halted their momentum, with the club, who were formed just 14 years ago, slipping down to seventh.

Our betting prediction:
Molde to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1522 GMT, Wednesday 25 May)

Sarpsborg will be hoping to get back to winning ways after losing the last two, but they are the second favourites with the bookies at 7/4.

Molde Preview – Can the visitors secure a fourth straight win?

Molde finished second behind Bodo/Glimt last season, and Erling Moe’s men are one of the favourites for the title this term. They have made a decent enough start, winning five of their opening eight fixtures.

Overall, Molde have won five, drawn one and lost two, scoring 15 and shipping eight. They find themselves in third position ahead of this round of matches, four points behind both Lillestrom and Viking. Molde have won three in a row, seeing off Odd Grenland, Aalesund and Kristiansund.
