Team News: Stabæk
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Stabæk manager Jan Jönsson to contend with from an otherwise complete squad. Jeppe Moe (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
Team News: Molde FK
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there is just the lone fitness problem for the Molde FK gaffer Erling Moe to be concerned with. Kristoffer Haraldseid (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We feel that Stabæk have the firepower to put one past this Molde FK lineup, but a single goal might not prevent defeat.
We’re therefore tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 winning margin for Molde FK when the full-time whistle blows. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
