Player to watch – Kristian Eriksen

Molde midfielder Kristian Eriksen scored four league goals in all of last season but the 28-year-old has already reached that total in just seven appearances of the 2024 campaign.

Eriksen is in great form right now and we're backing the Molde man to impress once again on Saturday when Rosenborg make the trip to the Aker Stadion.

Eriksen is enjoying a fine start to the season

The former HamKam man once scored 13 goals in a league season but since his move to Molkde, hasn't been known for his goalscoring. However, this season has been different and the Molde star looks likely to reach double figures in front of goal, especially if he scores against Rosenborg this weekend.
