DRAMMEN (VG) (Strømsgodset – Molde 1-3) His birth turns from toothless to ruthless after receiving a real wake-up call against Godset.
It is strong of us to turn it over, showing a good mentality. We showed more courage in the second half, not daring to look over our shoulders, Eric Holland Andersen explained.
Martin Linnes, Öland Andersen and Marcos Casa, with their three goals in the second half, made it easy for Molde at the end, but they really struggled to acclimatize before the break.

After an awkward first half, where Fred stopped Godst in front, Erling Mo had to take action during the break and put the aforementioned casas.
He turned from syrupy to velvety, from a fierce storm to a pure sea. Where they were initially passive and slow, others were direct and subtle.
The first shot was sent by returning defender Martin Linnes, who played alone at the start of the second half.
He seemed to spoil the opportunity under pressure from Philsvik, but in a strange way the ball passed through goalkeeper Vigar Mehra, Philsvik and Lenes – and then into the goal. “Incredibly cheap,” says Gustav Walsvik.
— It’s just a flow, says Linnes of his recording — and he laughs well.
Then Ulland Andersen was wonderfully animated, before he clinically waited outside Myhra and completed the spin. However, he revealed to VG that Fantastic Fanta was really a bit of a mess on his part.
I noticed that the ball slipped away from the goal, so I had to take an extra step, says Oland Andersen.
Andersen dominated Strømsgodset so much in 2017-18 that he was brought to Molde after the final season – which also explains his poor celebration.
In the end, it was all too easy, when Emil Breivik, Öland Andersen and Casa got together and let the latter get all the time in the world.
– It’s annoying. We are completely paralyzed by two incredibly cheap targets. It’s heavy at the moment, says Walsvik – who thinks they could have gotten six points and a cup final instead of zero and lost the semi-final after their performance.
Shortly before the break, Fred Friday finally returned to the scorers’ list, when he took advantage of a counting error in Molde’s defense and stumbled into Lars Christopher Philsvik’s spotless post on the back post.
Both teams had something to avenge the settlement. Stromsgods the fact that late on Wednesday they were beaten 3-0 in the cup semi-final by Molde, the fact that they lost 6-0 last season and visited Drammen.
Erling Mo still opted to rotate Siffert Manswirk, Christopher Haugen and Magnus Wolf-Ecrim from the start – and thus could boast the strongest triple change on the Eletserin Tour when the three came simultaneously in the second half.
They had some flaws, Mo says about why the trio was kept away from the start.
