Molde VS Odd Grenland match analysis

Molde are playing fabulously well under Uwe Rosler and they're one of just three sides in the Eliteserien playing good football as the season draws to a close. Let's face it though - they have to play well as they've played badly this season and were threatened by relegation due to injured players, a lack of confidence, and bad management. However, the old Molde is back and let's not forget that they most certainly are a top four side, especially with Thioune and Hoseth in their ranks doing all the damage. Fall, Diouf, and Runstrom in attack can do plenty of damage in attack when the chance is there, especially Fall, and when Molde's players are all fit then they look a very strong unit indeed. Four wins and one draw from their past five games gives them tremendous momentum to bring into this game, especially after their long trip north to face Tromso last match yielded success on artificial turf. They've only conceded in three of those five games as the German side of Uwe Rosler takes charge in this Norwegian team and Molde frankly look better for it. It aids my bet that Odd Grenland tend to play poorly away from home as their home games are always on artificial turf. They've lost four out of their last five away games in all competitions as their fairly meaningless Eliteserien campaign draws to a close so I don't expect much from the visitors, especially as they've defended like idiots lately. They've never been great defensively, always relying on their attacking strength to bail them out, but that hasn't worked on the road lately. I'd normally give the visitors a chance of turning around but with nothing really left to play for this season (as a European place looks to be out of their grasp) it's hard to see their motivation improving for this game so I don't see them doing much here. Molde have won the last five meetings between the two sides at home and with such momentum behind them, I have to fancy them to continue their run again today as they push away from the drop zone. Odd Grenland may give them a game on the goalscoring front but odds of 1.80 on the hosts outscoring their opponents appeals to me a lot today.
