Thursday night sees the second leg of Hoffenheim against Molde at Rhein-Neckar-Arena, with the German side expected to go through to the round of 16, despite blowing a 3-1 lead in Villarreal to draw 3-3.
Hoffenheim are no strangers to games where both teams score, as they have both scored and conceded in four of their last five matches, including games against Bayern Munich, Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Dortmund and the first leg of this tie.
Meanwhile, Molde’s new league season is yet to kick-off, as the 2020 campaign finished in late November, with the new season not starting until April. Molde finished second place in the Elitserien on 62 points, 19 behind Bodo/Glimt who managed 81 points from a possible 90.
Molde scored 77 goals in 30 league games, showing that they have the attacking capability to cause Hoffenheim problems, as they did in the first leg.
Munas Dabbur of Hoffenheim is the second top scorer in this season’s competition, having scored six goals in six games, including a first-half brace last time these two sides met.
