Team News: Molde FK
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the lone fitness concern for the Molde FK manager Erling Moe to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Eirik Andersen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
We think that Molde FK will possibly make use of the 3-4-2-1 system for this one, handing starts to Jacob Karlstrøm, Eirik Haugan, Martin Bjørnbak, Birk Risa, Martin Linnes, Sivert Mannsverk, Emil Breivik, Kristoffer Haugen, Markus André Kaasa, Ola Brynhildsen and Magnus Eikrem.
Team News: ODD Grenland
Thanks to a fully injury-free group ready to go, the ODD Grenland manager Pål Arne Johansen has no fitness worries to report coming into this clash.
We reckon that Oddrane might play in a 4-3-3 formation, giving starts to Leopold Wahlstedt, Espen Ruud, Odin Björtuft, Ivan Mesik, Josef Brian Baccay, F. R. Jørgensen, Solomon Owusu, Conrad Wallem, Milan Jevtovic, Tobias Lauritsen and Mikael Ingebrigtsen.
We envisage that ODD Grenland are dangerous enough to find the net against this Molde FK side, but it is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re expecting a close game with a 2-1 win for Molde FK at full-time. It’s a very tough call.
