Molde FK (Norway) versus Shamrock Rovers (Ireland) - October 6th, 2022

Norwegian dominance has been in the blood of Molde FK for the past decade or so, and they don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.

The goal-scoring machines have always had the ability to compete in European competitions, but the gaining of memorable results leaves some to be desired.

Currently in the top three within the domestic competition in Norway, Molde have been known to finish at the top or near the top for years now.

Their talent is oftentimes poached by bigger clubs in Europe and that says a lot about their scouting team and development system.

The key for Molde in this game against Shamrock will be limiting possession and countering with quick passes.

They are sturdy in the midfield and will force enough turnovers to create some great goal-scoring chances on the other end.

Shamrock Rovers are desperate to get their European campaign off and running after a couple of dreadful results that see them at the bottom of the table with Molde.

A team that usually does not score a ton of goals, rather solid at the back, Rovers need some inspiration to be fruitful in front of the net.

Nothing is going to help them more at this point and for that reason they will dedicate more players on attack than usual for this match against Molde.

Look for the Rovers to try and build from the back and pass it to the pair of their strikers for scoring.

Betting Prediction - Molde FK to win and the cover on the Asian spread of -1.5 goals for the Norwegian men at home.

Slavia Praha (Czech Republic) versus CFR Cluj (Romania) - October 6th, 2022

Slavia Prague is looking to build upon their strong start to the ECL group stage, sitting at the top spot in their respective table.

The Czech are looking strong and wanting to move up into the higher stages of the competition after dominating their domestic scene last season.

The squad is experienced in this sort of atmosphere and will be getting a boost from their home crowd as well.

Expect the manager to have full faith in his players to go out there and finish in front of goal, as well as managing the defensive aspect.

CFR Cluj will be the underdogs in this match but will come in with sure chances that are needing to be converted come game time.

If Cluj can steal a point or three from this scenario, there is still hope for their qualification into the playoffs.

The time is closing, so look for Cluj to dedicate everything in order to get the result they need.

Betting Prediction - CFR Cluj +1 goal spread as well as the under on Asian total 2.5 for this Thursday banger!
