Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Molde play host to Elfsborg at their Molde Stadion in the Conference League second qualifying round, first leg. The Norwegians head into the match following back-to-back wins over Tromso and Haugesund, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat Elfsborg on home soil. Fit-again midfielder Magnus Eikrem is pushing for a start, while all Ellingsen, Haraldseid, Sigurdarson, and Sinyan have been struggling with injuries of late.
The Swedish outfit, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Hammarby on Sunday, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, but midfielder Rasmus Alm is widely expected to return to the starting XI. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
