Maribor Prediction – Can Maribor earn 1st leg lead?

With just 2 defeats out of their last 9 matches in all competitions, Maribor look well placed to get something out of this 1st leg clash with Rosenborg.

3 wins out of their 4 matches already played to date in this season’s Champions League should also hold the Slovenian hosts in good stead on Wednesday night.

A 1st qualifying round win over Icelandic outfit, Valur, in a 5-0 aggregate win got Maribor’s Champions League campaign off to the perfect start.

This was then followed by a narrow win over Swedish club, AIK, as Maribor eventually went through on the away-goals rule.

The Slovenian side took a 2-1 lead after their 1st leg win at Ljudski vrt, and although they lost the 2nd leg 3-2, they’d scored more away goals than AIK over the two legs.

A tough assignment now awaits in the shape of Norwegian side, Rosenborg, who are currently the Eliteserien title holders.

Maribor have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches overall at home while their record on home turf in the Champions League is a solid one.

Despite suffering a 7-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool two seasons ago, Maribor have lost just 1 of their last 9 home ties in the competition.

Rosenborg Prediction – Can Rosenborg save their season?

With the Norwegian top flight season in full swing, Rosenborg’s only realistic chance of making this a successful season is a decent campaign in the Champions League.

The visitors find themselves in a disappointing 6th place in the Norwegian Eliteserien and 11 points adrift of league leaders, Molde.

It’s a long way off last season’s triumphant domestic campaign for Rosenborg this time around, and only a group stage appearance in the Champions League will appear to save their season.

On the domestic front, they’ve lost just once on home turf at their Lerkendal Stadion but results away from home have been pretty ordinary.

Rosenborg have reached the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League with earlier wins over Irish outfit, Linfield, 6-0 on aggregate.

They then followed that up with a narrow 3-2 aggregate win over Belarus side, BATE, overcoming a 2-1 deficit after the 1st leg loss in Belarus.

But Rosenborg’s best chance of progressing through to the play-off round of the Champions League appears to be getting a result at home.

Results away from home in this competition have seen Rosenborg register just 1 win out of their last 11 away matches, which includes 8 defeats.


Key-Facts – Maribor v Rosenborg

  • Maribor have lost just 1 of their last 9 home ties in the Champions League
  • Maribor have also kept 4 clean sheets from these 9 home ties
  • Rosenborg have won just 1 out of their last 11 away matches in the CL


Betting Tips Verdict

Maribor hold a solid record at home in the Champions League and they should at least avoid defeat in this 1st leg against poor-travelling Rosenborg.
