Our match prediction:
Despite suffering a 3-2 loss to Norkoping in Sweden, Rosenborg made it to the Champions League third qualifying round. The Norway outfit have been scoring goals for fun of late, but they obviously struggle at the back and, no doubt, they face an uphill task in the double-header against APOEL. APOEL set up a meeting with Rosenborg thanks to a 3-0 win over TNS of Wales and it has to be noted that they created a number of clear-cut chances to score in Tuesday’s match. The Cypriotes are eager to score a vital away goal in Wednesday’s football game and we predict that they are capable of doing so. However, over the years Rosenborg have turned their Lerkendal Stadion into a real fortress and we would not be surprised if the Norwegians find the net in the first leg as well. You should bear in mind that the two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
