Aris Thessaloniki vs Molde Prediction
Irrespective of the venue, the visitors have been on a roll and have not tasted defeat in their last ten games in all competitions. Molde are also on a two-match winning streak in their trips on the road, with their most recent clash against Viking in the league finishing 2-0 in their favor.
Although the hosts have been a force to reckon with in their clashes on home soil, their foes are a lot more competitive than the teams that they square up against every week. The home team, however, will surely not go done without a fight in front of their home fans.
Considering that they did find the back of the net seven times from their last three home games, expect them to get their names on the scoresheet along with Molde in this one.
The away side are unlikely to be as offensive as they were last time out as they already have a healthy three-goal advantage under their belt. The hosts do not look convincing enough to take down Molde at this point and are likely to hold them to a draw at the most and not more.
