Molde vs Rosenborg

I expect Under 2.5 goals on this match. Molde are the leaders in Tippeligaen and they have nine points advantage in front of the second placed Rosenborg. Molde also have the best home record in the league and they are still without a defeat on home ground. However, I believe the players are tired as Molde are playing in the qualification for UEFA Europa. They managed to eliminate Gorica. Molde kept the first-match advantage after played 1:1 on road and secured the progress. Molde will play against Ukrainian side Zorya in the next round and this match come on Thursday. It is clear the coach Tor Ole Skullerud will need to rest some of the best players. He has some additional problems as the strikers Bjorn Sigurdarsson and Fredrik Gulbrandsen (6 goals) are doubtful due to injuries. The goalkeeper Espen Pettersen is long-term absentee because of a knee injury. The striker Joshua Gatt will also miss this match due to injury. Rosenborg are on the second place. They are also participating in Europe. Last week they managed to eliminate Sligo Rovers from Republic of Ireland. But just as their opponents, I believe Rosenborg players are tired. The coach Per Joar Hansen was replaced with the former assistant coach Kare Ingebrigtsen who leads the team since this month. I believe he has to rest some of his regulars as Rosenborg also have European match next Thursday, against Turkish Karabukspor. In addition, the defender Tore Reginiussen is doubtful due to a knee injury and Ingebrigtsen will not risk.At the end I will mention that three of the last four mutual games at Aker Stadion have finished with Under 2.5 goals. Here are the results:26.10.2013. Molde – Rosenborg 1:028.10.2012. Molde – Rosenborg 2:027.06.2012. Molde – Rosenborg 4:308.05.2011. Molde – Rosenborg 0:2I expect another low scoring match. Under 2.5 goals is my pick.
