29th September 2020 – 21:00, Groupama Arena, Budapest
Ferencvaros and Molde are going to face each other in the battle for the place in the Champions League group stage. The first leg ended in a draw, so both teams still have a realistic chance to book their place among the best 32 teams in Europe.
Match Preview & Team News
The hosts are enjoying a great start of the new campaign. They started the qualifiers from the very first round and did not have too much luck in draws throughout the competition. Their first opponent was Swedish champion Djurgarden, but Ferencvaros managed to win 2:0. However, the real challenge came in the next round when they were supposed to travel to Glasgow and face Celtic. Although the bookies didn’t give them many chances of advancing further, Sergiy Rebrov’s side pulled off a 2:1 victory. Before reaching the playoffs, Ferencvaros needed to eliminate Dinamo Zagreb, another formidable rival, and they celebrated 2:1 again. Tokmac Nguen and the lads keep up the form in the national championship as well, and they managed to win seven points from three games played. Since Ferencvaros secured a 3:3 draw in the first leg, they will have an excellent chance to enter the group phase after many years and severe financial crisis that this club has gone through just a couple of years ago.
On the other hand, Molde has already played 19 matches in the Norwegian Eliteserien, where they are sitting in the 4th place. However, they haven’t been enjoying a good form lately since the visitors lost four times in the last five rounds. The current Norwegian champions are too far from the title race, as they are 18 points behind Bodo/Glimt. On the other hand, they are just one step away from the Champions League group stage, but Erling Moe’s side needs to improve their game. Molde had a much easier path to the playoffs, as they eliminated Finnish side KuPS, Celje from Slovenia, and Qarabag. In the first leg, they managed to get back into the tie after being 2:0 down, but they need a victory in this one.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be another tight clash, and we should see an exciting battle. However, we believe the hosts are a bit closer to the victory, and they are going to delight their fans. From what we have seen from them, they fully deserve the place in the Champions League group stage.
Goals Market Prediction
The first leg result gives a reasonable prospect of another efficient clash. Molde would need to attack from the start as it is unlikely that we are going to see another high-scoring draw. On the other hand, Ferencvaros has been excellent in the final third, and the hosts will have enough space to endanger the opposition’s goalkeeper. We believe the game will go over 2.5 margin.
