Molde – Reykjavik, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MOLDE - REYKJAVIK
Solskjaer left a good legacy in Molde and obviously the Manchester United legend knew what he was doing, because even without him, the team is currently playing at the top of the Norwegian Eliteserien and generally is in quite good condition. They are aggressive, fast, dynamic and use direct football as speed is leading in the team. Molde scores many goals and has the strongest attack in Norway.
Reykjavik is a team that barely finished in 4th place last season with 3 goals in a better goal difference than the next in the standings to reach this phase of the tournament. Right now, however, they are on top in Iceland and their style of play is not so different from Molde’s, as in almost every match they score a lot of goals.
Since the two teams are in good shape, are aggressive and are generally offensive, not relying so much on defense, we will choose the option Over 2.5 goals at 1.60. In the last matches, it was very obvious to see how far Molde defensive line was holding, and how easy it could be to create a chance against them if they play against better teams with good organization and quality counter-attacks. At the same time, they have different options to score and Reykjavik will have difficulties keeping them.
Reykjavik are in a series of 6 consecutive wins, in which there were at least 3 goals in the match
Molde have scored at least 2 goals in 21 of their last 25 home games in all competitions
