Will the Slovenian newcomer stay in the race?

When we think of Slovenian football, at least when it comes to appearances on the international stage, Maribor and Ljubljana have always fought for a place in the premier league in recent years. For the first time in the club’s history, NK Celje has become a Slovenian champion and can hope for the Champions League.

Until then, there are still some opponents to be cleared out of the way. On Wednesday, the Norwegian champions Molde FK will come to Slovenia. The Norwegians are regulars in the European Cup and have even played in the premier class before. That is why the first prediction between Celje and Mode is towards a guest victory.

The best bookmakers are also heading in this direction, leaving at least one back door open with odds of around 2.20 on the Norwegians. Another advantage of the moose is that they are in the middle of the season and full of juice. That also speaks in favor of giving a tip on the Norwegian champions in the duel between Celje and Molde.

NK Celje will give everything to continue to dream of participating in the premier class for the first time. If in the end, a place in the group stage of the Europa League emerges, the Slovenes can live with it excellently, because they have not yet managed that either.

Celje – Statistics & current form

Of course, the players from Celje watched the final of the premier class, which we reported on as part of our Champions League tips. Bayern or PSG, these are exactly the teams that coach Dusan Kosic would like to compete with.

  • “Molde is a very good team, it’s organized, disciplined, and physically strong.” – Dusan Kosic

The coach of the Slovenian champions knows that everything has to be right for the group stage.

The start of the qualification was only a relaxed gallop with the 3-0 win over Dundalk. Now it’s getting really serious. The dress rehearsal, however, went in the pants, because after the defeat on the first matchday in Slovenia Celje is only in tenth place in the table of the Prva Liga. Maybe some players already had the Champions League in the back of their minds.

Celje had a false start in the championship

Otherwise, the master should have prevailed against NK Mura at home. In the end, however, there was a 2-0 defeat. With the possible early elimination in qualifying for the Champions League, one could speak of a false start.

Given the weak performance at the start of the league in Slovenia, we prefer a tip for an away win in the duel between Celje and Molde, especially since the Slovenes are struggling with some health problems. Among other things, Captain Mitja Lotric will not be available on Wednesday.

Probable formation of Celje:
Rozman – Sojinovic, Brecl, Marandici, Zalatel – Pungarsek, Novak, Stravs – Kerin, Bozic, Dangubic
Coach: Kosic

Molde – Statistics & Current Form

Molde is one of the top Norwegian clubs and regularly plays in the qualifying rounds for the European group stages in summer. However, the reigning Norwegian champions have not made it into these groups for seven years. Also this year everything has to be right to achieve a big goal.

In the Elite Series table, it looks like Molde will have a hard time defending the national championship this calendar year. Currently, he is only second behind Bodo Glimt. The gap is seven points with even one more game in the account. Two defeats in August set Molde back.

Molde is self-confident again after two recent wins

Only now have there been two more wins in a row. Among other things, the Finnish champions Kuopio were shot 5-0 out of the stadium. This win boosted last Saturday’s league game. Molde won 2-0 over Odd Grenland. Leke James and Marcus Pedersen scored the late goals.

The self-confidence has now risen significantly again and therefore there is more evidence to use the odds between Celje and Molde for the success of the guests. In terms of personnel, it couldn’t look any better at the moment. All players are fit and have resisted offers from some foreign clubs before the match in Slovenia.

Probable formation of Molde:
Linde – Kitolano, Ellingsen, Sinyan, Pedersen – Aursnes, Hestad – Knudtzon, Eikrem, Brynhildsen – James
Coach: Moe

Celje vs Molde direct comparison

NK Celje has not yet gained too much experience in international football. A duel against Molde FK will take place this Wednesday for the first time. Two duels against Tromso in 2013 were the only points of contact with Norwegian football when Celje was eliminated after a home defeat.

Molde with a positive record against the Slovenes

Molde FK’s record against Slovenian teams is also not particularly rich in data. In 2014, the Norwegians won the second round of qualifying for the Europa League against Gorica. There is nothing more to report between Molde and Slovenian clubs.

Celje vs Molde Soccer Betting Prediction

Celje is not a completely blank slate internationally, but appearances on the European stage are very limited. Accordingly, Dusan Kosic’s team has little experience in the European Cup. Also, the Slovenian champions may still have the bankruptcy at the league start last weekend in their clothes.

Molde had a dry spell in the Eliteserien in August, but the Norwegians are now traveling to Slovenia with two clean-cut victories in their luggage. The self-confidence is now back in the elks and therefore we tend to give a tip between Celje and Molde that the Norwegians can get ahead.

Key facts – Celje vs Molde tips

Molde recently celebrated two wins without conceding goals
Celje and Molde meet for the first time

We think the experience is a point that speaks for the guests. We also see a little more quality in the Elche team, who have also been in full play for weeks and have recently regained their old form. That is why we place our bets in the match between Celje and Molde on the betting odds for a win for the Norwegians.
