Missing extra time: Desperate Molde players have to see Qarabag draw 2-2 in extra time.

(Molde – Karabakh 2-2) After Christian Eriksen’s six magical minutes, Molde was practically ready for the Europa League qualifiers. And now hope dangles by a thin thread.


– It’s heavy. Viaplay expert Lars Tjærnås commented that Molde deserves more.

Now Molde will have to have a lot of luck in the final round to advance.

– Now I’m a bit empty. “I think it’s really boring, quite simply,” Christian Eriksen tells Viaplay.

He thought he sent my generator. They led 2-1 until four minutes into overtime.

With a win, they will be in good shape and can start preparing for the Round of 16 of the Europa League.

Now the situation is different.

After Qarabag won the match in Azerbaijan, they took the lead over Molde head-to-head.

This means that Molde must get more points than Qarabag in the final round of the group stage to qualify for the Europa League.

  • Molde will play away to Bayer Leverkusen.
  • Karabakh receives a visit from Haken Al Suwaidi.

Molde faces a difficult task away from home to the leaders of the German League, which has excelled under the leadership of Xabi Alonso.

The group’s ranking is now as follows:

  • Bayer Leverkusen are already clear at the top of the group and go straight to the round of 16 in the Europa League.
  • Second in the group, which Molde drew 2–1, will play in the Europa League round of 16 against one of the top three in the Champions League.
  • The team that finishes third in the group will enter the Round of 16 in the Conference League. There they meet one of the group’s runners-up from the conference league.

Qarabag gave Molde a nightmare start when Juninho sent the visitors in front after just over ten minutes.

Then Molde made a long run towards the visitors’ goal. They had to wait until the clock struck 80 minutes.

Christian Eriksen scored twice and turned the score around, but four minutes into extra time, Bahloul Mustafa Zadeh scored the equalizer for Karabakh.

In any case, his birth guarantees a place in Europe during the new year. The question is, will it be the Europa League or the Conference League?

Bodø/Glimt is also guaranteed more play in Europe after celebrating the goal against Lugano. They will face Club Brugge in the group final.

If Glimt finishes second in the group in the Conference League, while Molde finishes third in the group in the Europa League, both will enter the round of 16 in the Conference League qualifiers.

However, they cannot meet in the round of 16 because they are from the same country.
