The Norwegian Eliteserien action continues this weekend with several matches scheduled to be played. Among the matches to be played is a match between league leaders Molde against the fourth placed Odds Ballklubb. The match will be played on Friday 5th July 2019 at 20:00GMT at Skagerak Arena.
Odd Ballklubb will be looking forward to maintain their winning ways. Of late, their form has gone south ways with them losing 2 of their last three league fixtures. At number 3, they have 25 points just 4 points shy of the leaders Molde. However, they have two games at hand.
The Eliteserien league leaders are determined to return back to their winning ways after last week’s 1-1 draw against Brann. Despite them creating impressive chances, they failed to convert them into goals. This led them to losing two crucial points. Going forward, the pressure will be higher from the second placed Bodoe/Glimt who trails them by just 2 points with 2 games at hand.
This is going to be perhaps one of the most entertaining football actions in the eliteserien. Both teams are going for a win. From their past records, both teams have all it takes to score during the match. We believe it is worthwhile to bet for a draw.
