After a 3-0 defeat away in the first-leg, Aris FC came off the block firing on Thursday.
They raced to a 2-0 lead in the first half and by the 85th minute tied the aggregate.
The match then went into extra-time, and to the dismay of the home supporters, Molde struck a crushing blow.
Ivory Coast International Mathis Bolly scored in the 106th minute to give the visitors the away goal advantage.
Molde also had 26 year-old Nigerian forward Leke James and they next file out against Partizan in the Play-off round.
