Ferencvaros (Hun) vs Molde (Nor) Prediction & Betting tips
The long wait ends. The only question is, for whom? Ferencvaros Budapest has not been in the group stage of the Champions League since the 1995/96 season. It wasn’t that long ago for Norwegian champions Molde, but the Elche have been waiting for a place in the premier class since the 1999/2000 season.
One of them will officially end their long dry spell on Tuesday, as it is the last step towards the group stage. The Hungarian champions, who won a 3-3 draw in the first leg in Norway and are now the favorite of the best bookmakers to advance, have better prospects.
It is interesting that the Hungarians got themselves into this comfortable situation with home wins in the qualifying rounds, while the Norwegians were able to prevail away from home. This fact gives the match even more spice, with the first impulse between Ferencvaros Budapest and Molde going to a prognosis in the direction of the home side.
This is also due to the fact that the Hungarians have been in significantly better shape overall than the Norwegians in the last few weeks. After all, the loser of this duel falls somewhat softly, because the group stage of the Europa League is already certain. We think that in the second leg between Ferencvaros Budapest and Molde we would rather place a tip on the Hungarian champions.
Thomas Doll spent a few years at Ferencvaros Budapest and tried in vain to lead this club into the premier class. The German coach laid the foundation stone, however, and the fruits are now reaping the benefits of the further development of the Ukrainian squad Sergej Rebrov. After the championship last year, Ferencvaros could now become a regular in the Champions League Tips.
The form is quite optimistic, because the team from the Hungarian capital is still unbeaten this season. In eight competitive games there were six wins and two draws. In the table of the Hungarian league, Ferencvaros is in fourth place with seven points from three games, but has played one game less than the leaders.
Last weekend Budapest had no game and for a week had been able to concentrate fully on the second leg against Molde.
The Hungarians should have been through by now, because in the first leg in Norway it was 2-0 after goals from Franck Boli and Myrto Uzuni before Molde scored three goals. The 3: 3 equalizer marked Igor Kharatin with a penalty.
In the second leg between Ferencvaros Budapest and Molde, the odds on the Hungarians going through should be the first choice. Coach Sergej Rebrov also sees his team in a comfortable situation, especially since he can send his best formation into the race, which will probably only differ marginally from the starting eleven in the first leg.
The verdict on the Norwegian master is currently devastating for many experts at home. A lack of enthusiasm and passion are the criteria why things are currently not going at all with the Erling Moe team. In the current condition, it would be almost sensational if Molde qualified for the group stage of the premier class.
There has only been one win in the last five games and that only came about through penalty shoot-outs at Qarabag Agdam. Accordingly, there was no successful match in regular time. The Tippeligaen table shows the club in fourth position, but leader Bodö Glimt is 16 points short. That doesn’t sound like a forecast for the Norwegians has to be made between Ferencvaros Budapest and Molde.
Last weekend, Molde again missed everything that makes a successful team. Sandefjord was a guest in Molde – a must for the reigning champions, one might think, but the outsider was the better team and won 1-0 in the end, not undeservedly.
The pressure on Erling Moe is now increasing. Only by participating in the Champions League can the coach silence the critical voices from the background a little. After all, the Norwegians can almost compete with the best team, but they haven’t broken anything recently. Only Kristoffer Haraldseid will still be missing with a cruciate ligament tear.
