They have been in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League eleven times before, but it has been over a decade since they were last there (2007). Since that 2007 appearance, Rosenborg have been eliminated from the qualifiers five times including last season where Celtic beat then.

So they ended up in the Europa League last season, where they tanked and finished bottom of their section. This is just the second-ever Champions League playoff tie for the Norwegians, losing their first in 2010/11. The Norwegians have won five of their six European games played this season, scoring fifteen goals in their six games.
