Lillestrom – Molde
Molde justified the tag of being the top contenders for the title by winning 9 of their opening 13 games of the 2021 campaign. Molde showed quality by reaching the knockout stages of the UEFA Europa League last season and eliminating the likes of Hoffenheim in the process. They seem even stronger this year and we can’t wait to see them in action in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday against Servette. Molde are currently five points clear at the top of the standings. However, it will be very interesting to see how they will perform against Lillestrom who marked the return to the elite class football with some extraordinary performances this year.
Lillestrom enter this tie unbeaten in six consecutive Eliteserien matches. They’ve won four of five games at home this term, conceding only five goals in the process. They could represent a serious challenge to Molde here. Knowing that the current top two Eliteserien goalscorers play in these two teams (Thomas Olsen scored 9 goals for Lillestrom so far, while Ohi Omouijuanfo notched 15 goals in 13 appearances for Molde), backing a high-scoring contest has to be the way to go.
