Round 26 – Draw between Deila and Solskjær keeps title race wide open

The 26th round of Tippeligaen 2012 was the first of three were the three title contenders would all face each other. In Drammen, Ronny Deila and Ole Gunnar Solskjær faced off in a battle between the two brightest young coaches in Norwegian football, which I’ve covered in my blog for STV Sport

Well worth checking out the highlights of that intense match between Strømsgodset and Molde, especially for Adam Larsen Kwarasey’s great save in the second half to keep Godset in the match and Jarl-André Storbæk’s great volley which saved a point for the home team

Strømsgodset – Molde 1-1

Rosenborg went top of the league after being awarded a very dodgy penalty against Sandnes Ulf, somewhat made up for by the excellent build up to their second goal, which Mikael Dorsin finished nicely.

Rosenborg – Sandnes Ulf 2-0

Fredrikstad and Brann played out a quite ridiculous game on the Monday night, Brann’s 20 year old midfielder Kristoffer Larsen putting in a brilliant display, getting his second goal in two games in only his fourth start for the club.

Sten Grytebust and Lars Hirschfeld held a fascinating duel in the game between Aalesund and Vålerenga, trying to outdo each other in making the biggest goalkeeping error. Grytebust started well by completely messing up an easy cross to let Mohamed Fellah but the visitors in front, but Hirschfeld easily surpassed that through his horrendous handling of Michael Barrantes long-range shot. Barrantes then gave Aalesund the lead with another terrific long-ranger.


Lillestrøm – Odd Grenland 1-1

Hønefoss – Stabæk 0-0 

Tromsø – Haugesund 2-0

Viking – Sogndal 2-1

Aalesund – Vålerenga 3-1

Fredrikstad – Brann 3-4
