- Molde triumphed 1-2 when these sides met in October’s reverse fixture.
- Dundalk have lost all four of their Group B games.
- However, the Irish side have scored in three of those fixtures, while Molde have conceded nine goals in their four starts.
Minnows Can Grab a Goal at Molde
Molde should justify short odds when they entertain Dundalk this Thursday night, however, the Irish minnows are backed to get themselves on the scoresheet at Aker Stadion.
After 4-1 and 0-3 defeats to Arsenal, Molde will be relieved to face weaker opposition again this week and the Norwegian champions can put themselves in contention to qualify the Last 32 with a win over Shane Keegan’s men.
The hosts can’t be opposed here with Dundalk losing all four of their Group B outings thus far, but odds of around 1/6 make zero appeal considering they only scraped a 1-2 success in the return fixture.
Adding both teams to score into the mix for this tie bolsters the price for a home victory significantly and it’s not unrealistic to suggest that Dundalk can grab themselves a goal after scoring in three of their four group starts.
With Molde conceding nine goals across their four group games, a home win and both teams to score is the obvious selection alongside a 3-1 correct score prediction.
