Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Molde will be looking to record their first win in Group F when they host Shamrock Rovers to their Aker Stadion on Thursday evening. The Norwegians face a must-win situation against Shamrock, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. The good news for the hosts is that David Datro Fofana is back from suspension, while all Ellingsen, Haraldseid, Sinyan, and Ulland-Andersen remain in the recovery room.
The Hoops, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Gent, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Molde’s party at Aker Stadion. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Norway, but Luke McNicholas remains on the sidelines with a long-term problem. You should bear in mind that the two clubs meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
Highlighted Player (Magnus Wolff Eikrem ):
Magnus Wolff Eikrem is a Norwegian footballer who was born in Molde on August 8, 1990. As expected, he started his youth career at his hometown club Molde in 2002, but four years later Manchester United scouts brought him to England. Eikrem returned to Molde in 2011, scoring six goals in 68 league appearances for the Blues in the Eliteserien.
After his spells with Heerenveen, Cardiff City, Malmo, and Seattle Sounders, the Norway midfielder made yet another return to Molde in 2018. Eikrem has been playing for the Blues ever since, establishing himself as one of the team’s key players.
Speaking of his international career, he scored two goals in 12 appearances for the Norway U21 team, while making his debut with the senior team in a 1-1 draw with Denmark on January 15, 2012. He replaced Markus Henriksen after 75 minutes. He is the son of former Molde footballer Knut Hallvard Eikrem.
