      Tip Reasoning

      Norwegian side Molde secured a surprise 3-1 victory away from home against Fenerbache in their opening Europa League group stage game. Molde were generally considered to be ‘making up numbers’ in a group that also includes Ajax and Celtic. However, they’ve got a chance to built on the positives from that game with a home match-up against an opponent that has struggled in Europe.

      In the match-up with Fenerbache, the Turkish side unquestionably had the better of the play, but didn’t dominant entirely. Molde counter-attacked well and had their share of chances.

      Ajax have been close to flawless in Dutch Eredivisie play this season, currently sitting atop of the division. However, they’ve not hit their stride in European competition, first dropping out of Champions League qualifying and then being held in a 2-2 with Celtic.

      They guarantee attacking football, they open up the game, but they are exploitable at the back and they are still primarily a young football team. A trip to Norway will not be an easy proposition.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Molde can score

      They showed it against Fenerbache and we think playing at home, they’ll find a way to get on the scoresheet and they’ll make this game competitive.

      2. Ajax are better than their European form indicates

      Ajax’s performances in Dutch Eredivisie suggest that they are a better team than their disappointing European football form has demonstrated. It’s difficult to say whether it would be considered a significant upset or not, but we do think they’ll find a way to produce in Norway against a team that has struggled in domestic competition over the last couple of weeks.

      3. Strange things can happen

      We like the BTTS betting tip because strange things can happen in midweek Europa League action, especially against a less well-known club like Molde. Our correct score prediction anticipates that they will get through it, but we like the prospect of making money off the BTTS better.
