Maribor vs Rosenborg Match Preview
Maribor have been struggling for consistency and sit near the 1. SNL rock-bottom with just three points to their name after four games, but we have still seen them make their way past Valur (5-0 on aggregate) and AIK (on away goals in a 4-4 thriller) as they now host Rosenborg with a spot in the Play-offs in sights.
Alexandru Cretu found the net very late in the extra time to grant Vijolice a ticket to the 3rd Qualifying Round, which will now surely have them very motivated to impress once again. They’ve been very tough to beat at home ground and will hope they can make use of it once again.
Rosenborg have, on the other hand, suffered just one loss in their last five outings and it came at BATE (2-1) in 2nd Qualifying Round. They’ve then turned the clash their way with a 2-0 home win and will look to build on it, but their unimpressive performances on the road will be more worrying.
Indeed, Troillongan’s woes on the road see them 6th on Eliteserien table and regularly making up for the away slip-ups. They’ve conceded six goals on five trips since late June and rediscovering their defensive stability could prove crucial ahead of the clash at Ljudski Vrt.
We don’t feel they have what it takes to overcome the troubles, though, and we’ll now rather stick with Maribor to take any lead with them on a trip to Norway. We’ll thus back a Home win at 6/5 with Ladbrokes, hoping to see them in great spirits up front.
We have been used to exciting games with goals on both ends and with that in mind, we’re now going for another such occasion. We’ll back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with bet365, which has been rated buying money for old rope by many.
