Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Molde will be looking to move one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League when they host Haugesund at their Aker Stadion. Molde failed to defend their Eliteserien trophy, but thanks to a 3-0 win over Stabaek the Blues cemented their spot in top two. Since a win over Haugesund will see Molde retain second position in the standings, we are positive that the hosts will go all guns blazing at the visitors.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Nigeria attacker Leke James, who scored a brace in the 3-0 win over Stabaek. Haugesund, on the other hand, have nothing to play for in the season finale as they are stuck in the middle of the standings. The visitors head into the match following back-to-back wins over Brann and Sandefjord, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s showdown.
