Kjelsas advanced to the semifinals of the Norwegian Football Cup after a dramatic quarterfinal encounter against Raufoss.

Earlier in the game, Vinge had opened the scoring for Kjelsas in the 60th minute, only to be matched by Raufoss's Fremtand, who equalized in the 87th minute.
Despite their success in the Norwegian Football Cup, Kjelsas have faced challenges in the Norway Division 2, where they currently occupy the 5th position. This league performance suggests that they may not be in contention for promotion to higher divisions.

Their quick and efficient start was evident as Kitolano found the net within the first minute of the game, followed by Breivik adding a second goal just four minutes later. Brynhildsen further extended their lead to 3-0 in the 35th minute. Although Lundqvist scored a consolation goal for Sarpsborg 08, it wasn't enough to threaten Molde's victory.
While Molde have had mixed results in various competitions, they are currently in contention for a higher league position, sitting just four points away from moving into third place in the league standings. However, they did experience a setback in their first Europa League game, losing 1-0 to Qarabag. Despite these fluctuations in form, Molde remain the favored team in this upcoming match, reflecting their overall strength and potential to secure a positive result.
