Amin Askar and Bjorn Utvik are missing for Sarpsborg. Both are absent through injury.

Molde’s Etzaz Hussain is struggling to overcome a shoulder injury, but other than that they

have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Sarpsborg finished, rather surprisingly, in eighth position in the 2018 league table, five places down on their third-place finish in 2017. It is hard to imagine but the club were playing third division football as recently as 2003, so the fact they continue to punch above their weight in Norway’s top flight is impressive. Last season, their European exploits may have had a negative impact on their domestic form, with the side making it all the way to the group stages of the UEFA Europa League. This season should be less hectic, and their full focus will be on the league and cup. They have boosted their squad with the acquisitions of Jonathan Lindseth (Mjondalen), Nicolai Naess (Dutch side Heerenveen) and Lars Jorgen Salvesen (second-tier outfit Ull/Kisa).


Molde are facing life without Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their former manager confirmed to be the new Manchester United boss after an impressive start as the interim manager of the English top-flight team. Odd Ivar Moen is currently the man charged with leading the club. Molde finished in second place behind Rosenborg last season, just five points away from the champions. They are known for their attacking philosophy and that was evident again last season with a total goals tally of 63, the highest in the league, and 12 ahead of the champions, Rosenborg. Another strong season is expected, and with new additions, Martin Bjornbak (Bodo Glimt) and Erling Knudtzon (Lillestrom), their squad definitely has more depth.


Sarpsborg could well catch the visitors off guard in this league match. The hosts will be looking to benefit from the transitional management situation Molde find themselves in. I will predict a home win.




Sarpsborg scored inside the first minute of this home league match last season, through Mikkel Agger. I expect them to make a quick start again in this league game.




Both league encounters between these teams ended 2-2 in 2018. In addition to that, they also drew 2-2 in Molde in 2017.
