Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Molde will look to extend their winning run in the Eliteserien to three games when they welcome Kristiansund to their Aker Stadion on Matchday 7. Erling Moe’s troops have big ambitions for the 2022 Eliteserien campaign as they are eager to put an end to Bodo’s dominance in the national championship. Molde are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
Midfielder Sivert Mannsverk misses the match due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while all Brynhildsen, Andersen, Ellingsen, Sigurdarson, and Haraldseid are sidelined with injuries. Kristiansund, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Stromsgodset, and given their shaky defence, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Molde, who are seen as one of the main contenders to win the title. As for the away side, both Aliou Coly and Dan Peter Ulvestad are out of contention with injuries.
