Molde – Arsenal
Molde hosts Arsenal at the Aker Stadion in a match from Group B of Europa League. Let’s preview it and see what important information we can tell you about this one.
These two teams are actually leading Group B so far. Arsenal have a perfect record of 9 wins while Molde are second with 6 points. The Norwegians have three points advantage over the third Rapid Wien. It seems that these two teams will challenge for the second place in the group and the opportunity to reach the knockout phase of the competition.
Molde and Arsenal met two weeks ago at the Emirates in London. The game ended with a 4-1 win for the Gunners who showed their quality. Surprisingly the Scandinavians opened the score with a goal from Martin Ellingsen, but Kristoffer Haugen scored himself an own goal in the 46th minute. The conclusion came in the second half when Sinyan scored himself another own goal while Nicolas Pepe and Joseph Willock finished the job for Arsenal. It was a pretty good game by Mikel Arteta’s team.
Lately Arsenal are having some problems regarding their shape. The team won just one point in its last two matches in the Premier League. This visit to Norway is a good chance for the Gunners to get back in shape and shine.
Molde prepared for this game with a solid win in the Norwegian Eliteserien. Erling Moe’s team paid a visit to Stabaek and secured a great 3-0 win. Leke James, Stian Rode Gregersen and Leke James again scored for Molde.
That’s our preview for the Europa League fixture between Molde and Arsenal from Group B of the competition. We believe the Gunners are in a good position to win this one as well. They need to record a win after two mediocre games in the Premier League lately.
