Rosenborg Prediction – Can Rosenborg overcome 2-goal deficit?

Rosenborg are another side that find themselves behind the eight-ball prior to this 2nd leg of their Champions League play-off tie against Dinamo Zagreb as they were handed a 2-0 defeat in Croatia in last week’s 1st leg loss.

The Norwegian hosts’ predicament isn’t quite as precarious as that of Krasnodar’s but nevertheless, Tuesday night’s hosts will have to be in an attacking frame of mind if they’re to emerge from this tie as victors and make their way to the group stage of this competition.

The home side did produce a positive response to the 1st leg defeat though as they returned to domestic action with a 3-2 home win against Stabaek in the Eliteserien which will give them confidence that they can overhaul this 2-goal deficit on Tuesday night.

In addition, Rosenborg have won their last 7 home matches on the trot at their Lerkendal Stadion which will boost their chances in this 2nd leg, with 4 of these 7 matches resulting in both teams scoring.

Midfielder, Jensen (4 goals) and forward Soderlund (6 goals) look the most likely for the hosts here who also have former Arsenal striker, Bendtner in their ranks too.

Dinamo Zagreb Prediction – Can Olympiakos extend winning streak?

Visitors, Dinamo Zagreb, also head into this deciding leg in Norway on the back of a recent winning streak which has resulted in a 2nd leg 4-0 win away at Hungarian side, Ferencvaros in the previous round of the Champions League, a 2-1 win away at Inter Zapresic in the Croatian domestic top flight and of course last week’s 1st leg 2-0 win against tonight’s opponents, Rosenborg.

Dinamo Zagreb will therefore be in confident mood ahead of this deciding leg despite being away from home, while a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions will also serve as a boost to their chances of reaching the group stage of the Champions League.

Having won 6 of their last 7 matches away from home in all competitions, a trip to Rosenborg shouldn’t faze them too much, while at Champions League level, Dinamo Zagreb are unbeaten in their last 5 ties on the road which includes wins at Astana, Saburtalo and Ferencvaros.

Dinamo Zagreb are certainly well placed to progress through to the group stage of the Champions League but to sit back for 90 minutes would be ill-advised, and with Rosenborg expected to press forward in order to get a foothold in this tie, Dinamo Zagreb will have the opportunity to hit their hosts on the counter in this one.


Key-Facts – Rosenborg v Dinamo Zagreb

  • Rosenborg have won their last 7 home matches on the trot at Lerkendal Stadion
  • Dinamo Zagreb have won 6 of their last 7 away matches in all competitions
  • Dinamo Zagreb are unbeaten in their last 14 matches in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict

Rosenborg have to go for it here while Dinamo Zagreb can hit them on the break, so both teams to score looks likely here.
