After the first earned point, Aalesund returned to defeats, and didn’t manage to score in the first 7 matches of the year. They suffered a 1:0 defeat at Stabaek on Saturday, with 0-13 goal difference. There is deep discontent among the fans, who see their team heading for relegation with mathematical precision. Molde took the third win in a row, at home against, easier than the final score (3:2) shows. They reached 10 points in 7 rounds and are in 7th place in the standings, 9 points behind the leader Bodo/Glimt. Aalesund is in a constant competitive crisis, while Molde are coming off a 3-game winning streak, and are starting to climb up the standings. In mutual matches, at Color Line Stadion, they recorded 9 straight victories in Eliteserien, so this is a big chance to continue the good momentum.
