The Vikings spread fear and terror into the depths of mainland Europe. What used to be in the distant past for the fighting and angry Northern Europeans, this year can hardly be transferred to the footballing aspects. Norwegian clubs rarely place exclamation points in international football.
Football Betting Prediction Maribor vs Rosenborg Trondheim
This season again Rosenborg Trondheim tries to polish up the battered reputation of Norwegian club football. The way into the group phase of the Champions League is not far away. In the third qualifying round, the Norwegians want to skip the hurdle NK Maribor.
There were times when you could hardly imagine a group stage of the Champions League without Rosenborg. Meanwhile, it is twelve years since the Norwegians were allowed to compete in the premier class with the big teams. Things are different for the Slovenian champion. For example, two years ago the Violets kicked out against Spartak Moscow, Sevilla FC and Liverpool FC.
This year, we see both teams on equal terms, so that before the duel between Maribor and Rosenborg Trondheim, a prediction should not be so easy. The Norwegians may be in better shape. In general, both teams can not be satisfied with their form right now. The entry into the premier class would be more than just a consolation.
In the possible playoffs Ferencvaros Budapest or Dinamo Zagreb would wait, which should be both solvable tasks. Therefore, the Slovenian and the Norwegian champions are very ambitious in this third round. If we look at the odds, then it is also difficult for the bookmakers to give in the duel between Maribor and Rosenborg Trondheim assistance for a suitable tip.
Slight tendencies in this case probably go in the direction of the Vikings, who will do everything in the old continent in the tradition of their ancestors again to spread fear and terror.
Whenever NK Maribor was internationally successful, this circumstance had to do with a terrific keeper. For years, this was the name of Jasmin Handanovic, who is now 41 years old. Kenan Piric has replaced the club legend and suggests that he can be a similarly secure backing. Meanwhile, Jasmin Handanovic is content with a place on the bench.
Although Maribor was able to eliminate in the first two rounds of qualification for the King class Valur Reykjavik and AIK Solna, but in the national league, the team of Darko Milanic has made a false start. From four games it was enough for the champion only to three points. This Maribor is still without victory in the title race.
Overall, Maribor has won only once in their last five games. Thus, the defending champion is just on position nine in the championship (of 10 clubs). It would not be the worst time to take off now. However, before the first leg between Maribor and Rosenborg Trondheim we would probably neglect the odds of a home win.
Coach Darko Milanic is currently not too much on the false start in the domestic league. The group stage in the Europa League is the minimum goal, however, is aimed at the premier class, which would flush many millions into the box office of the Slovenes. Therefore, the coach has spared his offensive over captain Marco Tavares, Dino Hotic and Andrej Kotnik last weekend. That could be a reason why it was only enough for a draw in the match in Mura.
The home side took a 1-0 lead after half an hour. Although Maribor had more of the game, but it was enough only to 1: 1 in the 70th minute by a goal by Martin Milec. It remains to be hoped that the competition will not pull away during the international matches in SNL, because the focus of qualifying for the Champions League continues to apply. There we expect the Slovenian champion again in full on Wednesday. This means that the offensive is likely to be completely refilled to produce a good result.
Expected formation of Maribor:
➤ Piric – Viler, Ivkovic, Pericic, Milec – Cretu, Vrhovec – Kotnik, Kronaveter, Hotic – Marcos Tavares
➤ Coach: Milanic

The Lord is not really in Trondheim anymore, and yet Nicklas Bendtner still dominates the headlines in Norwegian football. After his stay in prison and an open revolt of his teammates against him, the Dane has not played for months for Rosenborg and now no longer trained in Trondheim for several weeks.
He is officially a member of the squad, but those in charge at the Norwegian champions hope that this will change in this transfer period.
“It is unlikely that we will take our championship title this season. That makes it all the more important to get into the Champions League. ” – Eirik Horneland
Without him, it is indeed in qualifying for the Champions League, where the Linfield FC and BATE Borisov could be turned off. In the league, the gap to the top but enormous. Up to leader Molde currently missing eleven points. It is in the Norwegian Eliteserien already more than half the season around. That does not sound like a prediction on the Vikings’ title defense would make any sense before the match between Maribor and Rosenborg Trondheim.
After all, the shape curve is clearly up, because Rosenborg has lost only once in the last eight games, but could decide six games for themselves. So it looks good at least that the leap into the Champions League playoffs is not a utopia. Last weekend, however, it was enough in Sarpsborg only to a 1-1 draw. After just twelve minutes, the audience had experienced all the highlights of the game. Sarpsborg took an early lead before Mike Jensen draw to 1-1 final score.
In the league, it currently only enough to sixth place. Coach Eirik Horneland is therefore in terms of defending titles also no illusions and has the priorities clearly in the direction of the Champions League postponed. One more reason to get a good result on Wednesday in Slovenia, to wrap the leap into the playoffs a week later. In terms of personnel, the Norwegians are likely to be able to enter the race with best formation.
Expected formation of Rosenborg Trondheim:
➤ Hansen – Meling, Hovland, Reginiussen, Hedenstad – Trondsen – Konradsen, Jensen, de Lanlay, Adegbenro – Söderlund
➤ Coach: Horneland
