Molde vs Hoffenheim
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 18 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica.
MFK are from the Norwegian top flight – one of the weakest in Europe, especially in comparison to the German Bundesliga – easily the third-best in the continent behind EPL, and La Liga.
The team might be one of the top dogs in Norway, but under no circumstance are they a worthy opponent to the titans of the continent.
Die Kraichgauer had finished 6th in the intensely competitive German top flight the last season, and they are also one of the very few teams to have beaten juggernauts Bayern Munich in the past several months.
By the looks of things, expect Hoffenheim to deliver a winning performance this Thursday at the Estadio de la Ceramica.
Molde vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two teams are locking horns with each other for the first time.
- Sebastian Hoeneb’s men are yet to take on a Norwegian rival.
- Erling Moe’s men have conceded two or more goals in two of the preceding four overall matches against other German rivals.
- They had also lost two of the past four meetings against other Bundesliga squads.
Molde vs Hoffenheim Prediction
MFK are part of the Norwegian league, and this alone would be their biggest handicap this match-day, especially against a tough competitor from one of the best domestic competitions in Europe.
In fact, Die Kraichgauer regularly take on some of the absolute best teams in the continent and they even had posted an impressive 4-1 victory against the Bavarians this season.
Note that some of the absolute best teams in the world were not able to replicate such a feat since.
Moreover, Hoeneb’s men are also struggling a bit in the Bundesliga at present, and they need a huge win to get them back on to their feet, and this upcoming encounter seems like the perfect opportunity to register such a win.
By the looks of things, expect Hoffenheim to deliver a convincing performance this Thursday against Molde, and that too in style.
