Rosenborg vs Celtic: Hoops can shade tight Euro contest

Celtic have got plenty of work to do after a goalless draw with Rosenborg in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier but we’re still backing the Hoops to progress.

The Glasgow giants are unbeaten in their last three European away games, winning at Linfield in the previous round and drawing at Borussia Monchengladbach and Manchester City last term.

They have the resolve to come through this tricky test and appeal at 29/20 to secure victory on the night in Norway in our Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tips.

A Look At Rosenborg’s Betting Odds

Rosenborg only just managed to scrape past Dundalk in extra-time following a couple of 1-1 stalemates in the last round but they looked better than that when holding out at Parkhead last week.

The underdogs actually had the better chances to break the deadlock, via Vegar Eggen Hedenstad’s free-kick and efforts from Yann-Erik de Lanlay and Matthias Vilhjalmsson.

Kare Ingebrigtsen’s side have the fitness advantage of being just over halfway through their domestic campaign, currently topping the Norwegian Tippeligaen table again by five points.

However, they have drawn two and lost one of nine home fixtures so this is no fortress and we like 29/4 for the Hoops to grind out a 1-0 win from the Rosenborg vs Celtic odds.

A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds

Celtic badly missed the injured Moussa Dembele and suspended Leigh Griffiths as they struggled to create genuine openings in the first encounter.

However, Brendan Rodgers is confident his side can produce more of an attacking threat as Rosenborg seek to be more positive in open play on home turf.

“We know we can go there and win,” said the manager. “We actually score more goals away from home. We didn’t concede and now we know they’ll come out a little bit more in the second leg.”

Everything suggests this will again be tight but we’re going with 11/5 for an away win and under 3.5 goals to complete our Rosenborg vs Celtic predictions.
