Rosenborg was probably already bit lucky in the previous round when they excluded Valur only thanks to a goal in the fourth minute of added time from the penalty kick. Their domestic league is stopped for the moment, with the last match being at home against Tromso more than twenty days ago which they have won with a 2:1 result. After 16 rounds, they have two points less than first placed Brann.
Celtic, on other hand, entered the first leg tie handicapped for not having the star man Moussa Dembele available to play due to the injury the Frenchman suffered in the reverse fixture of the Alashkert clash in the first qualifying round. His countryman Odsonne Edouard stole the show in his absence, bagging a brace which inspired the 3-1 win for Celtic against Norwegian champions Rosenborg 7 days ago in Glasgow.
Rosenborg is expected to attack here at some point of the match and see what's happening. There's so much more quality in Celtic's roster and we can't see them being limited in every way in this one. Norwegians are far away from their best form, while the result surely makes the Scottish side to take the second leg as serious as possible. Rosenborg are strong at home soil, so we expect them to fight until the final whistle and manage to score at least one past.
