Champions League Prediction Rosenborg – Valur
Champions League Qualification
Rosenborg must be one goal behind. Valur will try to preserve this small advance.
State of form
The current three-time Norwegian champion Rosenborg is 2nd in his current championship, still 2 in front of Brann. The Scandinavians remained on 3 championship successes, against Valerenga (3-0), Sandefjord (0-1) and Tromso (2-1), but they fell in Valur last Wednesday (1-0). Unable to score outside, they will have to reverse the situation in front of their supporters.
Sacred in 2017, Valur is currently 2nd in Iceland this season, tied on points with Starjnan, but behind goal-average. After 6 consecutive league wins, the Olafur Johannesson-managed club was finally held in check on KR’s 1-1 draw. Opposed a Rosenborg team far above on paper, the Icelanders achieved a superb performance by winning at home.
The staff for Rosenborg – Valur
Roseborg can once again rely on his star striker Bendtner (ex-Arsenal), however, with Denmark for the World Cup in Russia. We can also note the presence in the squad of the striker Soderlund (passed by Saint-Etienne), the middle Konradsen (ex-Rennes) and the defensive rookie Gerbasch, just arrived from Lens this summer. Norwegian international level, 3 defenders were present at the last rally: Meling, Hedenstad and Reginiussen. Some important players remain uncertain for this second leg: strikers Vilhjalmsson, Adegbenro, De Lanley and Helland, as well as the middle Konradsen.
Valur is deprived of his star defender, present at the world 2018 with his selection, Saevarsson, always on vacation. Otherwise, no player known to the general public to report. The main offensive weapon is Patrick Pedersen (7 goals in 11 league games).
