Rosenborg did what was needed in the first leg against KR Reykjavik by taking a victory thanks to a goal in 56th minute scored from a penalty shot taken by Helland. The team is already thinking about the third round game, while it’s worth saying that they are defeated only once in last ten European matches having five victories and four draws in the progress.
Also, they aren’t defeated in front of their own fans in last year, having fourteen victories and five draws in all competitions, so no doubt that the team will try to get a bigger margin victory here to satisfy their fans. They are absolute favorite to win the title this season in Norwegian league, as the team currently has five points more than second placed Stabek with sixteen rounds played till now. They have postponed their match for this weekend, which only says how seriously they take Europa League. They have signed young talented winger Yann-Erik de Lanlay from Viking, while the team can’t count at long absentees central defender Tore Reginiussen and offensive midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen. Central midfielder Ole Selnaes remains doubtful for the game and his participation will be decided in last minutes before the kick off.
KR Reykjavik did fought well in the first match, but the quality difference was obvious even though the Norwegian side only scored one goal and it was via penalty kick. Still, they are going here with a glimmer of hope that they can revert the score, but no doubt that anyone realistic knows that their chances are less than weak.
They come from a really important and great victory in the derby of the Icelandic championship, as the team won 3:1 on the road against Hafnarfjordur. All three goals were scored in the second half when the visitors upped their game-play, while they now have climbed up at the top of the table having two points more than two other sides – Hafnafjordur and Valur. This was their fourth consecutive victory in the league, while they surely have much bigger ambitions for the domestic competitions than the Europa League. Defender Fridgeirsson who got red carded in their first round game is now back after serving suspension.
Rosenborg is simply few classes better side here. They surely do have offensive superiority over their opponent and in case the Norwegians take them anything close to serious, this should be an easy home victory with a few goals in visiting net.
