MATHEW WAGNER - Monday, April 16, 2012
A quartet of Americans faces each other when Hønefoss travels to Stabæk, while Josh Gatt and Molde look to continue their title defense away at Viking Stavanger.

Stabæk - Hønefoss

Norway will have its own American showdown featuring four Americans, when Stabæk takes on Hønefoss Monday.

Americans Ricardo Clark and Sean Cunningham should start at central midfield and center back, respectively, for Stabæk; meanwhile, American goalkeeper Steve Clark and American forward Kenneth di Vita Jensen should start for Hønefoss.

Stabæk sits in last place in the Tippeligaen after the first three matches and will be looking to turn things around at home.

After being promoted from the Adeccoligaen, Hønefoss has recorded three straight draws to open up the season. Steve Clark has recorded two shutouts for Hønefoss thus far and will be looking to add another against his fellow Americans.

Neither team is reporting injuries or suspensions for the game.

Viking Stavanger - Molde FK

Molde will continue its title defense as it travels to Viking Stadion to take on one of Norway's most successful teams, Viking Stavanger.

American winger Josh Gatt should start for Molde, having featured in all three games so far this season.

Gatt signed an extension with Molde this week, keeping him with the team until the 2015 season, and he will be looking to celebrate with a win.

Molde cruised to a 2-1 victory last Monday over Brann, leapfrogging to fourth place in the Tippeligaen. Currently in ninth place, Viking lost last week to third place Olso by virtue of an Indriði Sigurðsson own goal in the 71st minute.

Neither team is reporting injuries or suspensions for the game.

Notes

The Adeccoligaen game between Mjøndalen and Bærum has been postponed. The game would have featured another matchup of Americans with defenders Rhett Bernstein for Mjøndalen and Sebastian Troupe for Bærum.
