Molde vs Leverkusen: Top free betting tips
On the back of consecutive victories in the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen travel to Norwegian side Mode for their second Europa League fixture on Thursday, 5 October. Molde also regained their winning form in Eliteserien with a home victory against Viking.
Match result prediction: Leverkusen to win
Molde have registered three victories in their last five fixtures, along with one defeat and a draw. However, MFK has lost all of the previous three matches in the Europa League and UCL Qualifiers. On the other hand, Leverkusen have won four of the last five games in all competitions. The Black and Reds also clipped Bayern Munich to a 2-2 draw in that course. Given these statistics, we set Leverkusen as our favourites to take three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Molde have found the back of the net in four of their last five matches while Leverkusen scored in each game during that course. But both teams have not been great at their back end. Molde have claimed just two clean sheets in their previous five matches. On the other hand, the Black and Reds allowed goals to be scored in three matches during aforestated period. Hence, we expect these teams to contribute to a BTTS outcome in this encounter.
Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Leverkusen
Molde has found the back of the net more than once in only one of their previous four fixtures. However, Leverkusen have thrashed multiple goals in each of their previous five competitive games. The Black and Reds were also successful in scoring three or more goals in four matches during the aforestated period. Defensively, the Bundesliga side has conceded just four goals in that course. Therefore, we predict a 1-3 victory for Bayer Leverkusen in this fixture.

After defeating Kjelsas in the semi-finals of the NM Cup, Molde thrashed Viking by 4-0 in their last Eliteserien fixture.

Manager Erling Moe is fortunate to have a completely healthy squad to find their first win in the Europa League.
The Black and Reds added strength to their top position in the Bundesliga with a 0-3 Mainz in the last fixture. Leverkusen also had a perfect start to the Europa League with a 4-0 victory against Hacken. Head coach Xabi Alonso’s game plan for the next game is hindered with four players missing the game due to injuries.
