Rapid Wien vs Molde Prediction & Match Preview

Rapid Wien vs Molde
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 10 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.55 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadion, Wien.

One last chance remains for Rapid Wien to earn a spot in UEFA Europa League playoffs. One of the most popular Austrian teams will face Molde, champions of Norway with an urgency of three points. Another big plus would be to win with more than one goal difference.

Visitors are sitting in 2nd place with nine points, three above their hosts, so even a point would do nicely for them. Rapid Wien have been in very bad shape lately in Bundesliga, so we don’t think 2.05 odds offered on home win are a good price. All in all, we should witness an interesting match.

Rapid Wien vs Molde Head-to-head

Molde have outplayed Rapid Wien in the first head to head match played in round number two. They have won narrowly though, thanks to the goal scored by Omoijuanfo in the second half.

Rapid Wien have faced Norwegian teams five times in the past so far and the total score is not looking promising – one win, one draw, and three defeats.

Molde never faced any other Austrian team other than Rapid before.

Rapid Wien vs Molde Prediction

All the good work achieved in the early stages of Bundesliga was ruined in November for Rapid Wien. The team has won only one out of the last four encounters, losing to Reid in a shock 7-goals thriller match (3-4), while appearances against Salzburg & Austria Wien were solid (both 1-1 FT). Offensive line has been very productive, bagging 25 goals in 14 appearances. Ercan Kara is topping team’s charts and will probably be the biggest threat for Molde’s defense on Thursday.

Norwegian champions were victorious in seven out of the last eight games in Eliteserien. Still, they have already lost the title race to Bodo Glimt, so all of the focus is going to be on this match and playing Europa League on spring. We think their chances are quite good, so double chance draw or away win is going to be one of choices.
