Even Mister Europa League doesn’t help!
Hoffenheim lost a 3-1 lead against Norway club Molde in the first leg of the sixteenth finals, but had to live with a 3: 3 in the end. Munas Dabbur’s (28) next Euro-Gala is not enough for the Bundesliga club to win either!
The Israeli striker hits twice with his head (8th / 28th), and also prepares Baumgartner’s goal (45th) with a clever pass.
In now six Europa League appearances, Dabbur has been involved in seven goals (six hits, one assist). In the league, however, he scored only three times in 17 games. There he often has top striker Kramaric (13 goals in 16 league games) in front of him, who is absent from Molde due to an ankle injury.
But Molde never gives up. Ellingsen (41st), Andersen (70th) and Fofana (74th) still get the draw. Bitter! Because Dabbur fails with a penalty (foul by Gregersen on Adamyan) at Molde goalkeeper Linde (63.).
For Hoffenheim it is the disappointing end to a wild day! After landing in Spain (the game did not take place in Norway due to the strict Corona guidelines, but in Villarreal), Stefan Posch tested positive for the virus. He immediately flew back to Germany and is in quarantine.
And sees the Dabbur gala on TV, which in the end is not enough to win …
