Round 27 – Solskjær dirty his trouser in joy as Molde take big step towards title

Round 27 of Tippeligaen saw Molde finally beat Rosenborg in a decisive league game to take back the top spot in the league and a giant step towards defending the title, as I’ve written way too many words about for STV Sport.  

You can see what it meant to them with this view from the middle of the Molde fans behind the goal, Ole Gunnar Solskjær sliding celebration seen in the background after Etzaz Hussain rolls the ball into the empty net for Molde’s second goal.   

Full highlights:  Molde – Rosenborg 2-0  

Two days earlier, Strømsgodset refused to concede their hopes of a first league title in 42 years, with late late winner away to Haugesund, Peter Kovacs scoring with the last touch of the ball in the whole game; five seconds after the allotted injury time had been played. Haugesund had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside only minutes before.

Sandnes Ulf climbed out of the relegation zone and above Fredrikstad with a thumbing 5-1 win on Saturday. Fredrikstad had scored first, and only a great save from young Sandnes Ulf goalkeeper Sean McDermott prevented them from regaining the lead in the first half, the home team pushing on for a comfortable and crucial win after it.

Lillestrøm pretty much secured their survival with a great away win in Bergen, the second of Mathis Bolly’s two goal well worth checking out. Stabæk is relegated after Viking grabbed a late winner against them, while Sogndal could only manage a draw at home to Aalesund, leaving them still dangerously close to a relegation or play-off place.
