We're striking out for Norway, and Kev reckons we're in for a Europa League cracker.
"Hoffenheim are a front-foot side that leaks plenty of goals. There have been at least four goals in nine of their last 15 competitive matches."
Rusty Molde to play out a thriller
Molde v Hoffenheim

Luis Suarez did his best for us last night, firing in five shots against Levante and striking three of them on target, but he couldn't find his way onto the scoresheet, and the La Liga table-toppers were held to a 1-1 draw.
We're heading north to Norway now, as Molde prepare to take on Hoffenheim in the Europa League. I suspect there'll be plenty of goals to stave off the February chill.
Hoffenheim have underperformed under new coach Sebastian Hoeness, although in his defence the former Bayern reserves coach has rarely had his best eleven available because of injury. They have found more consistency in the Europa League than they have in the Bundesliga - they won five of their six group-stage matches, and scored 17 goals along the way. Three of their six UEL games featured at least four goals.
Molde finished second behind Arsenal, and dug out a 2-2 draw at Rapid Vienna on Matchday Six which saw them finish above the Austrians. Three of their six UEL games featured four goals or more, and they'll be defensively rusty, seeing as their domestic season finished in December.
Hoffenheim are a front-foot side, and nine of their last 15 games in all competitions have seen an Over 3.5 Goals bet land. I think it will happen again tonight.
