What Trueform says for Rosenborg vs Celtic

Rosenborg and Celtic are familiar foes and pretty evenly-matched on five past meetings in 16 months, but the Hoops should be hungrier for success in Norway this time.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are bang in contention to qualify from Group B of the Europa League, whereas their hosts are all but out after four straight defeats in this competition.

That scenario makes 3/4 for an away win hard to resist as our opening Rosenborg vs Celtic prediction.

A Look At Rosenborg’s Betting Odds

Rosenborg were competitive in a 1-0 loss to Celtic in Glasgow back in September, when only an 87th-minute Leigh Griffiths strike separated these teams.

However, their ambitions of advancing from this pool then suffered a major blow when RB Leipzig romped to a 3-1 triumph at Lerkendal Stadium.

The Norwegian outfit were then crushed 3-0 by RB Salzburg in Austria and looked a spent force when hammered 5-2 by the same side on home turf.

Rosenborg have also lost out to Celtic in a couple of Champions League qualifying ties from last season and earlier this term, so the omens are against Rini Coolen’s men.

Those previous meetings with the Hoops were generally cagey affairs, but we feel Rosenborg’s plight may persuade them to open up more on this occasion.

Looking at the Rosenborg vs Celtic odds, we’re siding with 11/5 for an away win and both teams to score.

A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds

Celtic have been true to their traditional European pedigree in this group, impressing in front of their own fans, but struggling on the road.

They followed up the success against Rosenborg by losing 3-1 at RB Salzburg, despite going ahead inside two minutes through Odsonne Edouard.

A 2-0 defeat at RB Leipzig put more pressure on the Hoops, but they responded well when edging out the German outfit 2-1 at home, giving us a trio of winning selections in the process.

Kieran Tierney’s early opener was cancelled out by Jean-Kevin Augustin in the 78th minute, but Edouard restored the advantage almost immediately after.

The way Celtic defended resolutely when on the back foot against an in-form Leipzig side showed how keen they are to stay in this competition.

More of the same spirit in Norway would make 15/2 for another 2-1 triumph worth adding to our Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tips.

Scott Brown and Tom Rogic have returned to the Celtic squad after injury problems, but Kristoffer Ajer, Eboue Kouassi and Daniel Arzani are still out.
