Molde vs IK Start predictions for Wednesday’s Eliteserien fixture at the Aker Stadion.

Molde to get back on track
After losing away at title rivals Bodo/Glimt at the end of last month, Molde’s frustrations on the road continued on Saturday when they were turned over 2-1 at Sandefjord in disappointing style.

Fredrik Sjolstad’s 40th-minute red card when the scores were tied at 1-1 proved a defining moment for Erling Moe’s side who eventually went on to conceded a game-deciding injury-time penalty.

After their luckless trip to Sandefjord, Moe will be relieved to get his Molde side back to the Aker Stadion on Wednesday where the defending champions hold a 100% winning record this season, and MFK should be able to maintain that streak at home to struggling Start.

Molde’s attacking play has been electric on their own patch this term, and the title holders plundered 15 goals on home soil in their last four assignments there alone. Start arrive at the Aker Stadion having lost three of their last four matches on their travels, and we expect them to be generous visitors again this week.

Having scored three times in each of their last three meetings with Start, backing Molde to hit over 2.5 goals on Wednesday is a favoured approach at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction forecasts a 3-1 home triumph.

Molde have been superb going forward, though their record of conceding once in three of their last four fixtures at home hints that a Start consolation effort is in the offing.
