Vålerenga form and stats

Vålerenga are steadily winning Eliteserien games and points here at Intility Arena. 4 wins, 3 draws and 0 defeats is the summary from 7 games.

No payout for Vålerenga in their previous match, an away game at Haugesund that ended in defeat 1-2. Before that game, the 2-1 home victory against Sandefjord.

Kristoffer Klaesson had a busy but productive day in the Haugesund match. Despite making six saves the loss could not be prevented.

A decent goal production from Vålerenga in their home games so far, with 13 goals from 7 league matches. On the other hand, Vålerenga have conceded 8 goals.

Molde form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Eliteserien travels is 4 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. Bitter travels for Molde as they have lost four games in a row away from home. The last time they avoided an away-from-home loss was the Strømsgodset match.

Molde are travelling again after losing away to Viking in their previous match (2-3). Prior to that result Molde won their away game at Celje in the Champions League. The scoreline was 2-1.

It's a bit worrying for Molde that their goalkeeper Andreas Linde made six saves in the Viking game last time out, but still couldn''t prevent the loss.

Molde has another fixture away, a Champions League game, against Qarabag in just two days. A tough schedule for the visitors!

The Molde manager E. Moe has got the team scoring on the road, with 21 away goals in 9 league matches. Molde's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 15 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

The most recent history between these sides is the Molde - Vålerenga 4-1 played earlier this season. Numbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: one win for Vålerenga, two draws and seven wins for Molde. Over 2,5 goals: eight times; under 2,5 goals: two games.
