Sarpsborg 08 struggled against Viking for their previous league outing. Against aggressive opponents they never managed to maintain defensive control, and fell behind half way through the first half after another couple of chances before that had foreshadowed the goal. Despite managing to pull one back before half time, they never made the game an even contest, and the 3-1 defeat was all but assured. Molde came away with a 1-1 draw after their match against archrivals and current league leaders Rosenborg. Although they needed a win to regain some contact with the other side, a draw at least prevented their opponents from pulling even further ahead at the top of the table, and they will take heart from the way they kept the game an even contest for the majority of the match, especially the first half. However, eleven points is a lot after fourteen rounds between the defending champions and the current league leaders. Sarpsborg 08 continue to struggle, with the defeat against Viking their third in the past five games. Meanwhile, Molde stand with two wins, two draws and one defeat in the last five.
