Ajax vs Rosenborg Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Two sides that have been eliminated from the Champions League third qualifying round will square off in the Europa League play-offs on Thursday night, as Ajax welcome Rosenborg at the Amsterdam ArenA. Ajax head into this clash on the back of a 2-1 defeat on the road at Heracles at the weekend in the opening round of the new Eredivisie season, with their goal being scored by Hakim Ziyech. On the contrary, Rosenborg managed a narrow 1-2 away victory at Molde in the Eliteserien at the weekend thanks to goals from Nicklas Bendtner and Anders Konradsen. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats the best odds and free bets.

Ajax v Rosenborg Betting Predictions and Tips

These two teams have met just twice in their history and both games ended in draws. Although both sides have been eliminated from the Champions League qualifiers three weeks ago, Ajax looked much stronger than Rosenborg in their qualifying ties. Furthermore, the Amsterdammers have only lost two of their last 20 home games across all competitions and have scored at least two goals in twelve of these. Check out my betting tips for the game below.

Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 goals at 3/4

Ajax Preview

After being eliminated by Nice from the Champions League third qualifying round due to the away goal rule, Ajax are now back in the Europa League and are hoping for another long run in the competition after they reached the final last season. The Amsterdammers have looked terrible over the past month, winning just once in their last six games across all competitions. After two consecutive draws against Nice in the Champions League qualifiers, Ajax suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Heracles in the opening round of the new Eredivisie season last weekend. They dominated the game from the first whistle and even took the lead in the 56th minute through Hakim Ziyech, but conceded two goals in the last 30 minutes of the game. Conceding has been Ajax’s main issue over the past three weeks as they allowed at least two goals in each of their last three games across all competitions. Despite their recent poor run of form, the Amsterdammers can count on their home form ahead of this tie as they have only lost two of their last 20 home fixtures across all competitions. They have been scoring goals for fun in front of their own fans over the past six months, as they managed to find the back of the net at least twice in twelve of their last 13 home games across all competitions. In addition, Ajax are unbeaten in their last 13 home Europa League fixtures.

Ajax Team News

Indy Groothuizen, Abdelhak Nouri, Mateusz Gorski and Norbert Alblas are all doubts ahead of this tie.

Rosenborg Preview

On the other hand, Rosenborg suffered a disappointing 1-0 aggregate loss at the hands of Celtic in the Champions League third qualifying round and they needed extra time to see off Dundalk in the previous round. The good news is that Rosenborg showed some signs of life recently, registering back-to-back wins over Kristiansund and Molde in the Eliteserien along with a 1-2 victory over Jerv in the NM Cup. The Norwegians have looked incredibly strong going forward over the past ten days, scoring at least two goals in each of their last three competitive fixtures. Their home loss at the hands of Celtic in the second leg of their Champions League third qualifying round was their only defeat in the last eleven games across all competitions. The most worrying fact is that Rosenborg have failed to win a single game in their last nine Europa League fixtures, conceding at least two goals in six of these. In addition, the Norwegians have suffered defeats in each of their last three Europa League away games. Nicklas Bendtner has been Rosenborg’s most dangerous player throughout their Eliteserien campaign so far as he is the team’s top scorer at the moment with nine goals under his belt.

Rosenborg Team News

Andreas Helmersen, Tore Reginiussen and Pal Andre Helland are all doubts, but Magnus Stamnestro is back in training following his knee injury.
