The top layer Latvian Ventspils is the first hurdle in the Champions League qualifier Wednesday at 20:45. The team beat Tromso 1-0 in a friendly in winter, and Molde manager expects a smooth, tough game at Aker Stadium.
- We have seen them in some games where they have dominated the game, but we are unsure of the quality of the Latvian league. It is a physically strong team with at least five men of over 1.90 in the starting. We are aware of the air force, but I think we have managed well in the air against strong teams like Rosenborg and Vålerenga, says Solskjaer who is looking forward to the fight.
- This is something players have thought about since the gold was secured in the fall. We have built up to form the time we enter now, and we are a sharper team today than we were when we secured the gold, says Solskjaer not going to change much on the team.
- There will be a maximum of one change from the team that started against Vålerenga. Except that Camara has been a slight shift in the knee, we have a fit squad among those who have played in recent games.
- What is a good result in the home match?
- A result that makes Venstpils must win at home to advance. In these battles, it is always important to avoid conceding a goal, so 0-0 can also be a good result for us.
Will copy the RBK
Solskjaer is very hungry for European success, and he believes there are good chances to get into a playoff either in the Champions League or Europa League.
- If we beat Ventspils, we are guaranteed four games in Europe. It is important that Norwegian football club teams coming as far as possible in these cups. I think that both Rosenborg and Tromsø can do well in the Europa League, but it is us Norway must trust in the Champions League. The dream for us in Molde is of course to achieve the status as Norwegian Rosenborg had suksesslag in Europe.
Then at least latvierne turned over two matches. Ventspils is a fairly new team with a short football history. But the team has managed to meet three Norwegian team in the European context. They knocked out Vålerenga from Intertoto Cup in the late 90th century, and since they have broken out in the qualifying matches against Fire and Vålerenga.
The team won the Latvian series last year, and now they lie in 3rd place in this year's league.
No one from Ventspils were present at the press conference in Molde. The team will train at Akjer Stadium at 20.45 on Tuesday evening.
Molde - Ventspils is shown in Rbnett directly from Wednesday at. 20.45. Away games are played Tuesday. 17.
==>Maybe under 3.0 goals is worth a bet if Solskjaer is approaching the game cautiously?
