Molde vs SK Brann (By: Dajkula)
Molde faces Brann Bergen in the 14`th round of the Eliteserien. Molde is the leader with 28 points and they have 3 more than the second-placed Odd. But they have also played 2 games more this season.
Molde is impeccable at home so far with 6-0-0 and a superb 18:2 goal difference. You can definitely play against them when they travel, but, at home, not many teams will test them. Molde has played against the strong teams here and they demolished Rosenborg with 3:0, Valerenga 4:1, Viking 5:1. Molde has the best scorers of the league – Omoijuanfo with 9 goals and Eikrem with 7 goals.
Molde is in a topsy turvy form of late and they lost 3 of the last 7 matches in all competitions. Again, all the losses came away from home where, even against the much weaker sides, they really underperformed.
Molde had a week to prepare for this match while Brann didn`t have that luxury. They played the NM Cup 4 days ago and they were embarrassed by Ranheim with 4:0. Brann is the 4`th team of the league with 21 points and 6-3-4 so far. You really couldn`t catch this team by head or tail as they are highly unpredictable. They have the same erratic results at home and away and they scored a bit more away from home. That doesn`t really mean much as Brann has the 8`th best attack of the league. The defender Wormgoor is the best scorer with 4 goals. I guess the good thing is that most of the team is involved in the scoring. The form is also not great for Brann with 2-1-2 in the last 5 matches.
Regarding the atmosphere in the team. It is not great an I gather. A couple of players have criticized the coach and Daouda Bamba was the latest one. He was furious in his last match as his teammates failed to pass the ball in promising situations but played the ball wide. It is how they play, the teammates responded. In a later interview, Bamba said that the players have been brainwashed and something to that regard. He is not in the squad for this match and he is their second scorer.
Molde will be without the keeper Andreas Linde(10-0), Eirik Ulland Andersen(mid.5-1) and Kristoffer Haraldseid(def.11-1) is a doubt.
Brann is without Bamba(att.12-2) and Emil Kalsaas(def.0-0).
Molde has won 7 of the last 9 against Brann and the last 10 at home. I wouldn`t be a surprise if they win again and continue the home dominance.
