according to MOT each energy level can be occupied by 2 electrons which must have opposite spins these pairs of electrons considered to occupy molecular orbital. so molecular orbital is formed from the overlap of the atomic orbitals of the atoms making up the bond.

Electrons can occupy the same orbital if they have opposite spin motion.
