Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - 1/8-finals
Venue: Puskás Aréna (Budapest)
Molde will have their work cut out for them as they aim to overturn a two-goal deficit on a neutral territory in Budapest. After getting the job done in the return leg against Hoffenheim in the previous round, the Norwegian side, for first time, are competing in the last-16 stage of this competition.

Following a 2-0 win in the first leg, Granada will hope to ease into the quarter-finals of the Europa League. Moreover, they will be full of confidence when they head into this fixture after their 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad in La Liga last weekend.

Molde vs Granada Team News

Runners-up in the Eliteserien last season, Molde will have to deal with the possibility of crashing out of Europe's second tier competition in the last-16 round. They will be gutted after the end of the first-leg tie, and rightly so, considering how little a chance it leaves them, going into the return leg.

The Norwegian side finished in second-place in Group B, winning three of their matches, and losing twice to group leaders Arsenal in the group stage. Nevertheless, they finished high enough to secure progression into the last-32, beating Bundesliga club Hoffenheim in the two-legged tie, with a 5-2 aggregate score.

Erling Moe's side have won three of their last five games in all competitions, with the first-leg defeat to their Spanish opponents being their only loss since the year started - albeit it is worth noting that they have not been involved in league football in recent months. However, the Norwegian coach will charge his men to quickly move on from their last disappointment, as they seek a comeback in this fixture.

Meanwhile, Granada will be buzzing after their crucial 1-0 victory against Real Sociedad in the La Liga on Sunday. With no goal separating both sides at halftime, they went in at break with plenty to play for in the second 45 minutes. Upon restart, Granada found an opener on the 52nd minute, gifting the hosts a lead which they held onto, thereby clinching an important three points.

This vital victory saw them leapfrog Levante into 8th-spot on the league table, and it also drew them nearer to an unlikely continental qualification. Having collected a total of 36 points from 27 league games, the Nazaries sit nine points away from the Europa League qualification spot, occupied by Real Sociedad.

Diego Martinez's side have been somewhat impressive in recent weeks, winning three of their last five games in all competitions. After seeing off Napoli in the previous round, they seem to be filled with so much self-belief. And they will look to wrap things up as quickly as possible, ensuring their progression into quarter-finals of the competition.

It was a close affair between both sides in the first leg, but the Spanish side showed superiority in the clinical way by which they finished off their chances. After Molde's Ellingsen was sent off in the 71st minute, a sumptuous volley from Roberto Soldado helped Granada to double their advantage, going into the second leg.

Molde vs Granada Predictions

Molde have had struggles keeping the opposition from scoring, with only one clean sheet in their last seven matches in Europe. In fact, they have conceded 16 goals in the Europa league - the most by any side still left in the competition. Granada, on the other hand, have now kept consecutive clean sheets in their last two games in all competition. As we cannot quite separate these sides on paper, we have our wager on no less than two goals come fulltime.
