Rosenborg vs Dundalk: Forwards to fire in Norway

Kick Off: 1815, 19/07/2017

Stadium: Lerkendal Stadium

Dundalk produced an impressive performance in the first leg and will feel they can still progress despite starting the second leg as big underdogs.

We correctly predicted a draw in the first leg and think Dundalk can again cause problems for the Norwegians, who are 53/100 to win the return match in 90 minutes.

A meeting with Celtic is likely to await the winners and the first of our Rosenborg vs Dundalk betting tips is for a home win and both teams to score at 5/2.

A Look At Rosenborg’s Betting Odds

Rosenborg are in good form domestically, leading the Norwegian Premier Division by five points and scoring 14 goals in their last four games.

They had to rely on poor Dundalk defending from a set-piece to equalise in the first leg but their home record suggests they should have the firepower to get the job done.

Centre-back Niclas Vemmelund is ruled out for Dundalk and we fancy Rosenborg to score at least three goals at 21/10.

A Look At Dundalk’s Betting Odds

Dundalk scored in five of their seven away matches in Europe last season as they reached the group stages of the Europa League and are not fazed by the task facing them in Trondheim.

“Rosenborg are a good side but we have shown we have the capacity to score goals,” manager Stephen Kenny told the Irish Independent.

“This game is still very much in the balance. I wouldn’t get fixated on the away goal. Their home form is good and 1-1 suited them but we are dangerous ourselves.

“There is still a match to be played and we are still level. It’s very rare you get a 0-0. There is still a game to be won.”

Both teams are looking stronger in attack than at the back so the last of our Rosenborg vs Dundalk predictions is at least four goals at 2/1.
