Teams: Aalesunds FK & Crystal Palace
Monday 9/4 (1. round)
Mandalskameratene - Kongsvinger 2-0
Not surprising. Both teams are expected to be around mid table.
Hønefoss BK - Bodø/Glimt 0-0
Two of the contenders for promotion. A draw is as expected.
Sparta Sarpsborg - Tromsdalen 0-1
Tromsdalen has been fairly impressive this spring, can they survive this season? On the other side, a fairly weak result by Sparta. Red light are already flickering.
Moss - Haugesund 2-1
Two probable mid table teams in a tight encounter where the home team won. Hardly surprising.
Sogndal - Molde 2-3
Sogndal looked the better team for the first 45 mins, but could only manage a 1-0 lead. The second was all about Magne Hoseth and Molde. Molde on the route to Tippeligaen 2008.
Løv-Ham - Bryne 2-1
Løv-Ham continues to impress as they defeat promotion candidates Bryne in front of nearly no supporters. A boring club, but it's impressive how they are now the second best club in Bergen. Terrible start for Bryne.
HamKam - Skeid 5-1
Ham-Kam are promotion favourites alongside Molde, and showed why on Sunday. Very one sides affair.
Notodden - Raufoss 2-2
Notodden have come up for the first time, and they mean business. They've put the money where it counts, and 2-2 against Raufoss is not a terrible start. But they need wins if they are going to make any kind of splash on this level.
