The hosts return to home turf on Thursday aiming to overturn their Europa Conference League last-16 tie and progress to the quarter-finals, having fallen late on in disappointing fashion in the first leg away at Molde last time out, suffering a 2-1 defeat.

That reverse match was Club Brugge’s first continental action of 2024, having secured automatic entry into the knockout stage with a dominant group-stage campaign in Europe’s tertiary competition, topping their group with 16 points from six games.

Club Brugge looked set to bring the game back to Belgium on level terms in a 1-1 draw last week, as Maxim De Cuyper converted a penalty five minutes from time to pull them level, only for the hosts to go back ahead in injury time.

Now on the back of a 3-1 victory over Leuven at the weekend, with Hans Vanaken and Bjorn Meijer on the scoresheet alongside a Tobe Leysen own goal, Ronny Deila’s side will bid to fight from behind on home turf on Thursday and continue their continental campaign with an aggregate win.

Meanwhile, Molde will set out to defend a hard-fought narrow lead on Thursday with their own sights set on the quarter-finals of this year’s Europa Conference League.

Molde did have to battle through a playoff round to reach this stage of the competition, having began their continental campaign in the Europa League group stage and finished third behind Bayer Leverkusen and Qarabag with seven points to their name.

While that finish did see Molde drop out of the competition, it was enough to earn them a spot in the Conference League playoff round.

They would set up a last-16 tie with a 6-2 aggregate win over Legia Warsaw in February, initially winning 3-2 on home turf before claiming a 3-0 victory in the away leg through Fredrik Gulbrandsen’s brace and an Eirik Hestad goal.

Molde did welcome Club Brugge to the Aker Stadion for the first leg of their last-16 tie last Thursday and drew first blood late in the first half through Halldor Stenevik, and after De Cuyper equalised in the final 10 minutes, Gulbrandsen popped up with an injury-time goal to swing the tie back in his side’s favour at the halfway mark.

Now facing a tough trip to Belgium with a narrow lead to defend, Molde will bid to see out an aggregate victory on Thursday and put their name in the hat for the quarter-finals.

Having not been in domestic action since the first leg, Molde should make minimal changes, with Emil Breivik and January arrival Valdemar Lund remaining confined to the treatment room.

Their attack should again be led by Veton Berisha and Gulbrandsen, who scored the injury-time goal to see his side travel to Belgium with a lead.
