The Molde vs. Glenavon match will be played on Thursday, July 19, at the Aker Stadium, Molde. This is the first qualifying round of Europa League second leg. In the first match played last week in Northern Ireland, Glenavon celebrated a 2:1 victory.


  • Molde recorded three victories in a row in all competitions before losing against Glenavon by 2:1. After 16 rounds in Norwegian Eliteserien, Molde is 3rd with six points less than the leaders Brann.
  • Glenavon is currently in a series of five victories. Four of those came in friendly games, and it is interesting that Glenavon conceded only one goal during that period, in the first game against Molde.


This will be the second clash between these two teams. One week ago, Glenavon defeated Molde by 2:1.


Molde didn't have a great start of the season. After 16 round, they are third on the table, with six points less than the first-placed Brann. However, as the season progressed, they were playing better and better, so they expected a better result from their trip to Northern Ireland. In that match, Molde led by 1:0, but they let the hosts turn the match around. The victory slipped through their fingers, but overall, they should be happy with the result. They scored one away goal, which might prove crucial for the rematch.

Glenavon was hoping to get a weaker rival in this phase of Europa League qualifiers, but they got Molde, the team which is surely better than them, at least on paper. In the first leg, Glenavon was trailing by 1:0, but managed to secure a 2:1 win in the end. That might prove as a huge self-confidence booster before the second game and they will be a tough cookie to break.
