Norwegian Eliteserien – Molde – Start

Molde welcomes Start in a match from the 12th round of the Norwegian Eliteserien. Now we are about to have a look at this game.

Molde started the new season with some difficulties. Right now they are 8th in the league standings with 17 points, trailing on 10 points behind the leader Brann. This is not how they are hoping to begin the new campaign. But it is what it is and now Molde don’t have any other option, but to improve and start winning on a more regular basis.

Right now Molde have a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. In their last five games they are very, very shaky – just one win, one draw and three losses. For sure the club’s ambitions are higher than just being in the middle of the table. If they don’t improve as quick as possible, Molde would have a lot of catching up to do.

In the previous round Molde suffered a 1-3 defeat during the visit to Ranheim. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys opened the score with a goal from Babacar Sarr, but Molde were unable to keep their advantage. Mads Reginiussen, Kim Riksvold and Michael Karlsen scored for Ranheim, winning them the three points.

Start on the other hand are 15th in the league standings, currently being positioned in the relegation zone. Since the beginning of the season they have won just 7 points. Right now Start have a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 8 defeats. In their last five matches Start won once and suffered four defeats.

In the previous round Start celebrated their second win for the season. They enjoyed a 1-0 win against Bodo / Glimt at home. Espen Børufsen scored the only goal in the game after just 7 minutes of play.
