Fenerbahce vs Molde by Rainbow-Bet

Small Norwegian side Molde visits mighty Sukru Saracoglu Stadium in Istanbul, and are up against the homestrong gigant Fenerbahce today, kick-off 19.00 (CET). The home side are ready for their comeback in European football, after been suspended for two years from all European competitions due to fans riot. 50 000 fans will make a incredible noise today in Istanbul.


Fenerbahce is on of the biggest clubs in Turkey, and has got a proud past. They're ready for European comeback at home, and will give their fans a good game today. Finished last season in Turkey's Super Lig on a 2nd place, 3 points behind the champions Galatasaray. Great at home as usual, and was best in Turkey last season with 13 wins, 3 draws and only 1 defeat. They've started this season well, with 3 wins and one draw, both home matches are won.


Fenerbahce's got a fantastic squad, with individual offensive force. Former Manchester United and Sporting CP Nani has already opened his goal scoring account this season, and got two goals on four matches. The form of Robin Van Persie is getting better, and up front the home team play with the big and strong Brazilian Fernandao, he's a big threat in the air and great to keep the ball. On the midfield we find the brilliant technical Raul Meireles in company with the creative new-signing Souza, they will make trouble for Molde today. Souza was at times fantastic for Sao Paulo last season and he's also got 3 caps for Brazil.


The away side from Norway probably will get a culture shock today, they'll meet a sound level their not used to at all. Molde's head coach Erlend Moe says his team must dare play their own game. Moe and Molde will try to lie defensively compact and try using their wings to counter attack their opponents. The Norwegian club have disappointed in the league so far this year, is down on a 7th on the table with 9-7-6 in total. Have sold their Norway international goalkeeper Ørjan Nyland to German side Ingolstadt and the inexperienced 20 years old Horvath will continue his job between the posts.


Qualified to the Europa League group stage after an important away goal in the second leg against Standard Liege (2-0 at home, 3-1 away). Will probably start in a defensive 4-5-1 formation today, with wingers Mohammed Elyounoussi and Mathias Moström key counter attack players.


Fenerbahce will miss out injured Abdoulaye Ba (defender) and Simon Kjær (defender). Lazar Markovic (midfield) is suspended, while Mehmet Topuz (midfield) is unavailable.


Expected lineups:


Fenerbahce (4-3-3):




Erkin – Kadlec – Topal – Ozbaraldi


Meireles – Souza – Tufan


Nani – Fernandao – Van Persie


Molde (4-5-1):




Flo – Forren – Toivio – Linnes


Elyounoussi – Singh – Berg Hestad – Hussain – Moström




Molde can't get anything out of this match, Fenerbahce will control the game and at times run over today's visitors. If the home side manage to score a early goal, this will sure be a big-win in Istanbul. Molde's got a central midfield without any pace, this gives Meireles and Souza time and space, and they will exploit that. An inexperienced Horvath in the Molde goal will make the visitors a bit uncertain in defense and he's rather poor in the air.


It's important for Fenerbahce to get 3 points today, this group is strong with Ajax and Celtic as the two remaining teams. Home at Sukru Saracoglu Vitor Pereira's men will deliver, 50 000 crazy fans will help their team make a comfortable win. We bet on a home win with European Handicap -1, Fenerbahce must win with 2 goals or more for the bet to be won.pin
