Dundalk: In good shape (Recent Form: WWWWWL)

Dundalk take on Rosenborg on Wednesday in the first-leg of UEFA Champions League second qualifying round. Team is in good shape and the Irish champions didn’t concede a single goal in last 5 matches so players are optimistic. “Confidence is very high amongst the players and it is important that we’ve built up momentum at the right time coming into the Rosenborg game. We don’t have much injuries at the minute so we’ve a full strength squad now and everyone is raring to go. I know it’s a cliché to say the supporters are the 12th man but they can really push us on when we’re on the pitch and there is no better atmosphere than European nights. I’ve seen it looking on over the last couple of seasons and it’s tremendous to now be a part of it,” said defender Seán Hoare.

Rosenborg: Want to go through (Recent Form: WDWLWW)

Rosenborg are doing well this season as they sit top in the Norwegian Eliteserien, with 5 points of advantage over the next three teams. Players want to also perform well in Europe and they look ahead to the upcoming encounter. “It will be a tough away game. We have to be spot on defensively. We also know that we’re strong in attack. Dundalk are a good side, but we want to get a positive result,” said Johan Lædre Bjørdal.


All in all, I think that visitors are favourites of this clash. Although Dundalk are on a 5-match winning run without conceding, it’s Rosenborg who have more quality. The Norwegian champions seem to be in fine shape and in my opinion visitors might be able to win this game.
