35-year-old Rodolph Austin is getting a much bigger and higher Christmas current from us now, after he netted a Ninetieth-minute winner for Esbjerg at Vendsyssel final night time. Their 2-1 gained was a nailbiting one, however we’ll take the cash and run.
We’ll head to Austria, as a result of the battle to qualify for the final 32 of the Europa League is reaching a nailbiting conclusion between Rapid Vienna and Molde, and we might properly see a number of targets.
Rapid’s marketing campaign received off to a disappointing begin, as they blew a lead in a 2-1 residence defeat to Arsenal. They then misplaced 1-0 at Molde, earlier than a pair of victories in opposition to Dundalk received them again within the race. A 4-1 hammering on the Emirates has left them needing a win in opposition to Molde to make the final 32.
Molde additionally beat Dundalk twice and misplaced twice to Arsenal, and a defeat of any description within the Austrian capital will see them tumble out of the competitors. Their away report at this degree is fairly poor – they’ve misplaced eight of their final ten street video games within the UEL.
Rapid are going properly within the Austrian Bundesliga (they’re simply two factors off high spot) and their residence report is powerful. They held the champions Salzburg to a 1-1 draw on the Allianz Stadion, they usually hammered the present league leaders LASK 3-0. Their solely residence defeat this time period was in opposition to Arsenal.
With forwards like Taxiarchis Fountas and Ercan Kara, Rapid have the firepower to get the outcome they want, and I’ll again them to win at 2.226/5.
