Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Rosenborg kick off their Europa League qualifying campaign with a match against Breidablik at their Lerkendal Stadion. The first half of the new Eliteserien season has been a mixed bag for Rosenborg, who have slim chances of regaining the domestic trophy. As a result, the Troillongan will give their best to record a good result in the Europa League this term. Considering that the Norwegian outfit have been impressive at home ground of late, it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win Thursday’s qualifier.
The Icelanders, on the other hand, are on a six-game winless run in the Europa League, and despite their fine form in the national championship, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Rosenborg’s party in Trondheim. When the two teams met in the 2011/12 Champions League qualifiers Rosenborg rolled over Breidablik 5-0 at Lerkendal Stadion.
