Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Allianz Stadion when Rapid Wien and Molde face each other in the Europa League decider. Molde defeated Rapid 1-0 in Norway earlier in the process, and given the goal difference of the two sides, a 1-0 win over Molde will see Rapid book their place in the Europa League last 32. The Austrian outfit are high on confidence ahead of Thursday’s clash as they rolled over Hartberg in the national championship at the weekend, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play.
Hofmann returns from a domestic ban, while Dibon, Ljubicic, Petrovic, Velimirovic, and Shobesberger are all likely to miss the game with injury. The Norwegians did well to beat Dundalk 3-1 in their last group game, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Anyhow, the hosts are closer to picking up all three points from the game than the visitors. The likes of Bjornbak and Haraldseid remain in the recovery room for the visitors.
