On Matchday 1 of the Europa League, Group B will face Celtic FC and Rosenborg Trondheim. The game will take place on 20 September 2018 at Celtic Park in Glasgow. The second of the Scottish Premier League meets the leaders of the Norwegian league. The second table seat of the Scots is a little surprising, since they have always been champion since 2012. Overall, The Bhoys won the Scottish championship 49 times. Rosenborg is also a series champion. A total of 25 times they became Norwegian champions, last three times in a row. In addition, the two teams have met this season already. The duel therefore promises tension. In the duel between Celtic Glasgow and Rosenborg Trondheim we recommend a tip that both teams score at least one goal.
The Scottish series champion started poorly in the season. After five games, they are second with ten points. In the league, the team of Brendan Rodgers three wins, once went out of the game draw and against the championship leader Hearts they lost 0-1. Also European ran the season so far durchgezogen. In the Champions League qualification was in the third round against the AEK Athens surprisingly close. Previously, “The Bhoys” beat Rosenborg. At home, Celtic won 3-1, while away home drew 0-0. So the teams already know each other. The Europa League qualifiers secured the boys from Glasgow with a 4-1 over two games against Suduva.
The best scorer for Celtic in the league is Olivier Ntcham with two goals. This is rather a meager yield after five games. The great problems of the Scots in the season so far are clearly on the offensive. Only five goals after five games are definitely not enough. The departure of Moussa Dembele was a bitter blow for the offensive.
At home, Celtic is doing well. The last defeat they suffered on 13 May 2018 against Hibernian. Since then they get six wins and a draw. Nevertheless, in this duel between Celtic Glasgow and Rosenborg Trondheim for betting, we decided that both teams would meet. The odds are over 1.90. In the case of a success from the home team, however, only quotas of around 1.40 can be achieved. Therefore, we refrain from betting on Celtic FC, rather, such a tip is to install in multi-bets.
Rosenborg’s shape curve is sensational unlike that of Celtic. Seven wins from the last seven games; the last defeat is already twelve games back. However, the Norwegians suffered this just against the current opponent. The path to the Europa League began for “Troillongan” in the Champions League qualification. There they divorced as mentioned before against Celtic. Therefore, they had to make their way into the Europa League qualification. The first opponent was called Cork City. With a total of 5: 0, the Norwegians won clearly and clearly. Then they met Shkendija. Also this duel went with 5: 1 clearly to Rosenborg. With this victory they qualified for the group stage of the Europa League.
The championship has progressed further in Norway than in most other countries. After 22 games Rosenborg scored 40 goals. The best scorer is Alexander Soderlund with six goals. It is striking that the goals in the team are very distributed. A total of thirteen different goalscorer Rosenborg can register in the current championship.
Also abroad it runs according to plan for “Troillongan”. All of them won the last five games. Overall, the goal difference is 12: 3. Only the two Champions League qualifiers were lost. Therefore, the offered betting odds with about 7.00 for a win Rosenborgs but rather a little surprising. In the whole analysis of Rosenborg but must be considered that the league in Norway is not one of the best in Europe. Accordingly, the great results are no guarantee for a successful match in Glasgow.
PREDICTION: Celtic to win @ 1.45
