Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Jerv, Molde will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Eliteserien when they take on Tromso on Matchday 13. The Blues want to stay in the title race, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash. Haugan is widely expected to replace Bjornbak in the starting XI as the later suffered an injury in the midweek draw, while all Eikrem, Brynhildsen, Ellingsen, Sigurdarson, and Haraldseid remain in the recovery room.
Tromso, on the other hand, have subscribed to draws. The visitors aim to escape the danger zone, but seeing that Molde failed to turn their dominance into victory against Jerv, home win should be considered. As for the visiting team, there are no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Molde.
