Rosenborg vs Ajax: Preview & Prediction
Rosenborg are well on their way to winning the Norwegian championship, taking first place with a spot margin for 2nd place.
The Norwegians were aiming to enter the Champions League until they beat Dundalk in a hefty tie, then played with Celtic where they even drew 0-0 in Scotland but lost 1-0 at home and were dismissed.
Relegated to this Play Off of the Europa League, they left Ajax in the raffle, finalists defeated in this competition last year and when they were not favorites,
The Norwegians were beaten 1-0 in Amsterdam and are now in good condition to move on after this unexpected result achieved in the Netherlands.
This round is not closed, but playing at home can guarantee this transition to the group stage.
Ajax the Dutch were not champions last year, they lost that title to Feyenoord and so they even played a Champions League tie, but lost on the net with Nice.
A draw with 1 goal in France and draw 2 goals at home dictated the departure of the Ajax team.
In this Europa League they were finalists defeated last year and this year things have complicated much if they lose at home with Rosenborg 1-0 at home.
The start in the league was also not the best giving the idea that the team felt the elimination in the Champions League. The team has quality, especially with a lot of youth in this squad.
They lost important players like Klaasen that gave great balance to this team. Last weekend they won 3-1 for the championship and may have gained new confidence to turn this tie that is predicted complicated against the result of the first leg.
Ajax are favorites but I do not know if they will be able to turn this round. Quality in offensive terms they have, Hunteelar, Dolberg, Kluivert and company if they are inspired can turn this tie, but I doubt they do not suffer goals as well.
Rosenborg has quality in its most advanced sector and should also score. I think it will be an open game between two teams that like to play a more offensive football.
Ajax by circumstances will have to do so without a doubt, so I expect a game with goals and with emotion until the end. I made this bet last week in which I lost, but now being the 2nd hand and against the result of the 1st, I think it has everything to beat.
