MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Molde lost the big game of round ten, going down 3-1 away to Bodo Glimt. Despite an early strike from Ohi Omoijuanfo, last season’s champions were outclassed at times as the hosts as their attacking talents came to the fore. The defeat was Molde’s first in the league of the season and only the second game in which they have failed to take all three points in. The return to a home fixture will be a good opportunity for them to bounce back. The Aker stadium is a place where they have recorded four-straight wins, scored 12 and let in just two goals which will inspire confidence.
Valerenga beat Stromsgodset 2-0 in their last game. It was a dominant display from the hosts in Oslo and in truth the scoreline could have been far higher. Valerenga have lost just one of their five games on their travels this season which is the fourth-best away record in the league. Overall, the Oslo club are on a streak of seven matches without defeat but keeping that run going with a trip to Molde will be some challenge.
Molde are unbeaten at home this season and should be able to bounce back from their defeat in round ten. I will predict a home win in this fixture.
HEAD TO HEAD
Molde haven’t lost against Valerenga in the league since 2016 (a 3-0 home win for the Oslo club). Last season, Molde won 4-1 at home and 4-2 in the away fixture at the Intility Stadium.
