Champions League at Bet Victor

The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Champions League will be played on Wednesday night and our next featured match sees Norwegian outfit, Rosenborg, taking on Irish side, Linfield as the betting tips continue at the Lerkendal Stadion in Trondheim.

Rosenborg Prediction – Can Rosenborg put 2nd leg to bed?

Following last week’s successful 1st leg 2-0 win at Windsor Park in Belfast, Rosenborg are now in the driving seat to progress to the next round.

The hosts now return to home soil and their Lerkendal Stadion in Trondheim where they’ll be expected to close out this 1st round qualifier against Linfield.

Rosenborg will be in confident mood ahead of this return leg in Trondheim as they’ve won their last 4 matches on the trot in all competitions.

Victories over Kristiansund 1-0, Ranheim 3-2 and a 5-1 demolition of Viking in the Norwegian Eliteserien gave Rosenborg a valuable boost.

In addition, their 2-0 win away from home at Linfield in the 1st leg of this Champions League tie will have added to their confidence levels too.

Champions League experience and pedigree is also firmly on Rosenborg’s side as they’ve been a regular fixture in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League.

With just 2 defeats out of their last 11 Champions League ties at home, Rosenborg will take some stopping in their own backyard here.

Linfield Prediction – Can Linfield pull off remarkable comeback?

Linfield are seemingly staring down the barrel of Champions League elimination as they prepare for a difficult trip to Norway to face Rosenborg.

Last week’s 1st leg at Windsor Park in Belfast ended in disaster as they lost 2-0 to Wednesday night’s opponents, and now face a mountain to climb.

To make matters worse, Rosenborg scored 2 away goals in last week’s win, so Linfield will need to pull off something close to a miracle if they’re to progress.

The defeat at home to Rosenborg also became Linfield’s fourth defeat on the trot in all competitions, but they did bounce back recently.

A 3-0 win away at Irish side, Portstewart, in a friendly will give Linfield a modicum of confidence, but it’s a big step-up in quality in this 2nd leg.

Overall results at Champions League level have seen Linfield register 2 wins out of their last 23 matches, while away from home, this is even worse.

Linfield have won just 1 of their 12 away ties in the Champions League to date.


Key-Facts – Rosenborg v Linfield

  • Rosenborg have lost just 2 of their last 11 Champions League ties at home
  • Rosenborg have won their last 4 matches on the trot in all competitions

Betting Tips Verdict
