Round 25 – Contenders take their positions before title race ignites

Week 25 in Tippeligaen was all about setting the scene for the big matches to follow. All three title contenders will face each other in the next three rounds after the international break, with Molde edging slightly ahead after their last-gasp win over Sandnes Ulf.

I’ve chronicled all the action in my blog for STV Sport.

Among all the highlights below, make sure to check out Vegard Forren’s spectacular free-kick to give Molde a vital win and Alexander Lund Hansen’s astonishing save against Odd Grenland. Strømsgodset missed some great changes against Vålerenga and left Oslo with only a draw, Peter Kovacs the biggest culprit with his miss in the first half.

17-year-old Bård Finne scored in his second home game in a row for Brann, who again came from a goal behind with a few minutes left to win, another youngster – Kristoffer Larsen – getting a superb deciding goal.

Otherwise, two late goals in Haugesund and Sogndal had great consequences for the relegation battle.
