MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
Sandefjord lost 3-1 away against Kristiansund in their round 11 Eliteserien game. After a rocky start at home this season, Sandefjord have gradually got better and better; the club from southern Norway have won their last two matches at the Sandefjord Arena, which will certainly give their opponents something to consider ahead of this match. Spanish forward Rufo has been one of the club’s star players this year, the 27-year-old has scored two goals and has been an important attacking outlet for his team.
Molde’s last outing was a home match against Valerenga, a game they won 4-1. In matches played away from home, Molde have the second-best record in the league: four wins, one draw, one defeat and 13 points garnered; they also have they second-best goals scored on their travels (17). It is telling that their only away loss this season came against Bodo Glimt, the team with which they are going to have a real battle with for this year’s league title.
Molde’s only away loss this season was against Bodo Glimt (3-1), and that game is likely to be by bar their toughest challenge overall; while this match against Sandefjord is much more winnable, so I will predict an away win in this fixture.
HEAD TO HEAD
The last time Sandefjord and Molde met was in 2018; Molde won both games: 3-1 in Sandefjord and 5-0 at home.
