Molde vs Valerenga Soccer Betting Tips
Does Molde get back on track?
Betting Tips: Handicap: victory at home -1.5
Molde and Valerenga are two table neighbors. The hosts are second and the guest takes third place. However, this tabular closeness belies the true balance of power of the pairing.
The clubs are already six points apart at a very early point in the season. Above all, a look at the offensive series shows the qualitative difference in a direct comparison.
The champion has an average of 2.9 goals per game, while the capitals only achieve 1.3 goals per league game. For the match in the Aker Stadium between Molde and Valerenga, the tip accordingly aims at the home side winning a difference with at least two goals.
Molde – Statistics & current form
Molde had the longest unbeaten streak last season. At that time there were 14 games and recently the reigning champions were on the right track to achieve this value again. Eight wins and one draw were scored in the first nine rounds, but the series broke last weekend.
In the top game against the leaders Bodo / Glimt, it went down 1-3. As a result, the gap to the last opponent who has won all ten league games so far has increased to five points in the table. Coach Erling Moe’s team must now score again so that the gap does not increase any further.
Sturm is again acting reliably
For this undertaking it is positive that Leke Jones is in the best of spirits once again: The second best scorer in the league last season has already scored six goals. Etzaz Hussain is hardly less powerful: The attacking midfielder has scored in four of the last six league games.
Also, the attack on the four-time titleholder is very variable. No fewer than 13 goal scorers can be found in the squad!
Molde victory with half-time lead?
On their territory, the MFK also usually makes short work of its opponents: in three of the four home games, the victory was won including a break. Against this background, the odds for a new home win with a lead over the broken tea are also interesting in the encounter between Molde and Valerenga.
The probable line-up of Molde:
Linden – Wingo – Sjolstad – Ellingsen – Kitolano – Aursnes – Hussain – Hestad – Eikrem – Brynhildsen – James

Valerenga – Statistics & current form
Last season’s tenth got off to a very good start in the new season. There was only one defeat in the first ten rounds of play, with four draws being recorded in parallel. The reward for the constant performance is the third place in the table of the elite series.
A placement that could not be achieved for many years at the final settlement. The five-time champion, most recently 15 years ago, has been on the top floor of Norwegian football for almost 20 years, but more than places in the no man’s land of the table have not popped out for the Bohemians in the recent past.
Attacking services remain expandable
The newly installed coach Dag-Eilev Fagermo, who previously coached the league competitor Odds for 13 years and replaced Ronny Deila, who moved to New York City FC, is now doing better again. However, Enga has an offensive problem with only 13 goals. Center forward Matthias Vilhjalmsson alone can be taken out of the criticism at first glance.
The 33-year-old oldie from Iceland worked out two assists and three goals. But all goals came only from the penalty point and he hadn’t scored another goal in six rounds. In contrast, the defensive can be described as stable: On average, it only receives one goal – a value that only Rosenborg Trondheim tops and otherwise the pending opponent still has.
The probable lineup of Valerenga:
Klaesson – Bjordal – Nasberg – Adekugbe – Borchgrevink – Lekven – Oldrup Jensen – Shala – Finn – Vilhjalmsson – Donnum
Last games from Valerenga:
07/26 2020 Vaalerenga 2 – 0 Stromgodset
07/19 2020 Kristiansund BK 0 – 0 Vaalerenga
07/15 2020 Vaalerenga 1 – 0 FK Haugesund

Molde vs Valerenga Soccer Betting Tips
Molde has not lost a single home game in the past season. There are also not many bankruptcies in the current season. Even with the handicap of a very low number of fans, home strength has not decreased.
All four games in the Aker stadium were won and only two goals conceded, although two teams from Rosenberg and Stabaek, among others, looked in from the upper table area. The champion, together with FK Bodo / Glimt, has already rushed in the table.
Six points ahead of third and upcoming opponents. Given the current strength of Bodo / Glimt, the home side can not rest if the title defense is to work. The defeat against the top of the table last weekend increased the pressure once again, although the slump came about somewhat unfortunate.
