Celtic look well placed to knock Rosenborg out of the Champions League for a second straight season and can confirm their superiority in Norway.
The Hoops won 1-0 at Lerkendal Stadion last year after a goalless draw in Glasgow but this time take a 3-1 advantage to Scandinavia.
Brendan Rodgers believes his side can pick up another win here and 5/4 for that to happen is our first Rosenborg vs Celtic prediction.
A Look At Rosenborg’s Betting Odds
Rosenborg overcame the trauma of losing their manager in the build-up to the trip to Parkhead to secure a surprise lead through Birger Meling.
However, Odsonne Edouard’s double and Olivier Ntcham’s strike put Celtic firmly in the driving seat ahead of the return fixture.
Interim boss Rini Coolen insisted: “We are at home and play in front of our home crowd, which will help us a lot, so we will not give up and you never know.”
However, reflecting on the opening encounter, he admitted: “Celtic were the better team and deserved to win, no doubt about that.
“It will be very difficult, very tough. Celtic are at a different level.”
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Rodgers described his Celtic side as a “joy to watch” in the first leg and felt they could have easily prevailed by a bigger margin.
He said: “It was a real demonstration of maturity and staying calm under pressure and at the end of the game we could have had five or six goals.
“It is not always clean and pure, you judge your team as well when they are down – and they were absolutely fantastic and showed that mentality to win the game well.”
The Hoops also impressed when beating Alashkert 3-0 at home and away in the last round, so there is no longer such a fear of them suffering from travel sickness in Europe.
Defender Jozo Simunovic will again be suspended, while striker Moussa Dembele remains on the injured list, but a clash with AEK Athens in the third qualifying round still beckons.
We’re adding 17/2 for the Hoops to oblige 2-1 this time to our Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tips.
