Rosenborg vs Celtic Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Rosenborg and Celtic will square off at the Lerkendal Stadion on Wednesday night for the second leg of their Champions League third qualifying round, with both sides looking for a place in the play-offs after the last week’s first leg ended nil-nil. Celtic had an overwhelming 60% ball possession last week, but Rosenborg were the ones that looked more dangerous. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

It’s difficult to predict the winner in this one as both sides have plenty of quality within their ranks. Although, I’m expecting a tough and well-contested affair with few goals scored as all three meetings between these two sides have seen few than two goals scored.

Rosenborg Preview

Rosenborg’s form over the past two months has been decent as they have only lost once in their last twelve games across all competitions. They enter the fray on the back of a seven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, including their goalless draw against Celtic last week. Regarding their domestic campaign, Rosenborg currently sit at the top of the Norwegian Eliteserien table with 35 points under their belts after 17 rounds, five points more than the second-placed Sarpsborg 08. The truth is that Rosenborg don’t have any competition in the Eliteserien at the moment as they have won back-to-back titles over the past two years. Regarding their Champions League recent record, Rosenborg have only won three of their last nine qualifiers. However, they looked much better on home soil, winning seven of their last eight Champions League home fixtures while scoring at least two goals in each of these. In addition, Rosenborg have only lost twice in their last 20 home fixtures across all competitions and are currently on a five-game unbeaten run. Matthias Vilhjalmsson is one of Rosenborg’s top scorers at the moment in the Eliteserien, and he has also scored the decisive goal against Dundalk in the previous Champions League qualifying round.

Rosenborg Team News

Magnus Stamnestro is the only injury absentee for Rosenborg ahead of this tie.

Celtic Preview

The Scottish Premiership hasn’t started yet, but Celtic have enjoyed a decent run of form in the pre-season, losing just one of their six friendlies. They registered a comfortable 6-0 aggregate win over Linfield in the previous qualifying round but were unable to find the back of the net against Rosenborg last week. However, Celtic bounced back with a 0-5 win over Sunderland in a friendly fixture at the weekend, despite using a weaker squad. Their solid defence has been the key to their recent good run of form as they have kept a clean sheet in six of their last seven games across all competitions. Away from home, the Hoops are currently on an amazing 22-game unbeaten run across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in 17 of these. The bad news is that Celtic have struggled on the road in the Champions League over the past two years as their 0-2 win over Linfield in the previous round was their sole victory in nine away qualifiers. However, they don’t need to chase a victory here as a 1-1 draw will see them through. Head-to-head, Celtic have only won once in three meetings with Rosenborg and were knocked out from the competition by the Norwegians in the first qualifying round of the 2001/02 season.

Celtic Team News

Dedryck Boyata, Moussa Dembele and Erik Sviatchenko are all missing through injury.
