Competition: UEFA Europa Conference League (Qualification)
Date: 28th July 2022
Kickoff: 16:45 UTC
Venue: Boras Arena

Molde made the most out of their on-paper superiority over Elfsborg as they ousted their Allsvenskan rivals to a 4-1 win in the first leg of this Conference League qualification round tie. The most successful side in Norwegian football will now travel to Boras with the intention of sealing the second leg and the entire tie, with another capped win to celebrate their European dreams for next season. On the other hand, a depleted Elfsborg side, which seems to be walking on eggshells - thanks to their impending player suspensions - will have to somehow survive the wave that Molde brings with them to Boras. This will be resilience met by dominance on Thursday evening.

IF Elfsborg vs Molde FK Betting Tips

Resting most of their key players for this very contest, Elfsborg found themselves on the losing end against Kalmar FF on the weekend. This was the Swedish side's third loss in a row and the fifth game without a win. On the other hand, Molde's love story with high-scoring games continued as they battled it out with Sandefjord last week in a five-goal thriller which ended up going their way. This was the fourth consecutive game that Molde failed to keep a clean sheet and so, we expect them to not keep one on Thursday evening too. So, this game should have both sides scoring, as our best pick for a primary bet.

IF Elfsborg Team News

Elfsborg will be, unfortunately, without one of their key players for this big game. Central midfielder Emmanuel Boateng was sent off in the dying embers of the first leg due to violent conduct - and being a straight red defines his absence for Elfsborg in the initial rounds of this further competition too, if they can miraculously qualify. The Swedes lack a midfielder who naturally plays on the right-hand side of the three-man midfield and so we expect Jimmy Thelin to field Alexander Bernhardsson in Boateng's role. Bernhardsson is a right-winger who will be well suited to this role. When it comes to the player to watch, winger Rasmus Alm made the most of his 68 minutes from the first leg as he opened the scoring for Thursday's home side. Alm will thus be one of the men to keep an eye on.

Molde FK Team News

For Molde, all games have off-late been a battle of the midfield. Whenever the Norwegian side dominates the middle of the park, they certainly oust their opponents and in spectacular fashion. In the first leg too, four of their five midfielders were on the score-sheet as their forwards and defenders were disappointing in their respective roles. The five-man midfield of Haugen - Breivik - Mannsverk - Kaasa - Linnes is becoming stronger and stronger, day by day, in the Eliteserien and it will probably be on show when the side visits Sweden this Thursday. We would recommend particularly keeping an eye on Sivert Mannsverk, the classic number 8, who has been like a focal point for the visitors.
