Our match prediction:
Thursday’s football match at Ernst-Happel-Stadion pits together Austria Wien and Rosenborg, the two teams who are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in the upcoming double-header. Austria head into the game following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Rapid Wien and Sturm Graz and they are certainly desperate to put an end to the negative trend. The Austrian outfit play well in front of home fans and despite the fact that they were beaten by Spartak Trnava in their last home fixture in the Europa League, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net in the first leg. Rosenborg were beaten by APOEL in the Champions League qualifiers, but they have been scoring goals for fun this season and, taking everything into account, a lively contest appears on the cards this time out. Rosenborg and Austria meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
