APOEL vs Rosenborg – One of the most exciting duels of the Champions League preliminaries will be held tonight in Nicosia. Norwegian champions, Rosenborg, waited more than nine years in European competitions some good results at the moment and seem determined to reach the group stage. Besides determination, Rosenborg have a good quality level players, as shown in this season where the league lead in international and had good developments in the other preliminary rounds.
The first round was held in Trondheim, the end result was 2-1 for the home team. The crowd watched a football quality and most satisfied with the result’m sure most fans of APOEL. They deserved the goal, but if the strikers from Rosenborg, especially Helland, would have been more focused in front of the scorer difference can be much higher in Rosenborg’s favor.
The coach of APOEL, Thomas Christiansen, seemed quite confident saying before this match that will have a very calm approach to the game and will not risk since the first minute. APOEL will fori to expand the 15 th consecutive season in Europe, can take advantage of the home where they performed well. They lost at home last time in January. APOEL debut in the national championship against Anorthosis with a win and will want to continue the good moment.
Ingebrigtsen’s men have lost top scorer last season, Soderlund, who went to Saint-Etienne, but it seems to have found a replacement in Gytkjaer, domestic championship’s top scorer so far. He hopes to continue good form with another goal scored in this confrontation.
Rosenborg is known for the fact that it focuses more on the defensive than on the offensive phase, APOEL are required to enroll to move on. For this reason I expect a confrontation as beautiful as a tour of this Movit day ticket you bet on the goals.
