Born in La Canonja, Tarragona, Catalonia, Molina graduated from local CF Reus Deportiu's youth setup, but made his senior debuts while on loan at UE Rapitenca, in Tercera División. After being sparingly used in his return he rejoined the latter club for the 2007–08 season, where he excelled.
Molina was an undisputed starter for Reus in the following campaign, appearing in 30 matches and scoring once as the team missed out promotion in the play-offs. In the 2009 summer he signed for CD Alcoyano, in Segunda División B.
After being a regular in his first year at Alcoy, Molina missed most of his second (which ended in promotion) due to injury. On 17 December 2011, he played his first match as a professional, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 2–3 away loss against Real Murcia for the Segunda División championship.
