Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Molde and Rapid Wien go head to head at Aker Stadion in the second round of the Europa League group stages. Molde are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in all competitions, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Both Aursnes and Hestad return to contention following domestic bans, while Haraldseid remains in the recovery room.
The Norwegian outfit defeated Dundalk on the road in their Europa League opener, and they are surely capable of matching Rapid at home ground. The Austrians, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Arsenal. The Austrian club have been scoring goals for fun in the national championship of late, and given Molde’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. The two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
