Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
David faces Goliath at Aker Stadion on Matchday 28 as Molde and Aalesund go head to head in the Eliteserien round 28. Molde aim to cement second position in the standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side. Keep in mind, though, that several first-team regulars will be rested in Sunday’s as the Blues will be with one eye on the Europa League clash with Rapid Wien.
Aalesund are having a season to forget, with the team collecting only 11 points in total from possible 81. The rock-bottom team failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Sandefjord on Wednesday evening, and regardless of which Molde players will be deployed in the starting XI, we do not believe that Aalesund are capable of spoiling the Blues’ party at Aker Stadion. Experienced attacker Torbjorn Agdestein remains in the recovery room for the visitors.

Magnus Wolff Eikrem is a Norwegian footballer who was born in Molde on August 8, 1990.

After his spells with Heerenveen, Cardiff City, Malmo, and Seattle Sounders, the Norway midfielder made yet another return to Molde in 2018. Eikrem has been playing for the Blues ever since, establishing himself as one of the team’s key players.
Speaking of his international career, he scored two goals in 12 appearances for the Norway U21 team, while making his debut with the senior team in a 1-1 draw with Denmark on January 15, 2012. He replaced Markus Henriksen after 75 minutes. He is the son of former Molde footballer Knut Hallvard Eikrem.
