Rosenborg have another advantage as they have enough match practice in domestic league. Cyprus champions, in turn, ended two months ago and APOEL played only friendlies this summer. Results of these sparring don’t impress 2 wins, two draws and one defeat against quite mediocre opponents like Giannina, Viitorul, Lechia Gdansk, Partizan and Altantas. All these team are lower level in comparison with Rosenborg.
APOEL lost two of their recent away matches and drew one. The most recent away win was taken over three months ago. Away leg of matchup with TNS in the previous qualifying round ended with scoreless draw. Cyprus side didn’t allow a goal but couldn’t score against Wales side despite advantage in the match. Rosenborg are clearly much stronger side than Wales champions and APOEL will have much harder match as Rosenborg show impressive results at home.
Prediction for the match: Rosenborg to win.
