Hafnarfjordur from Iceland and Rosenborg from Norway will meet yet again after their brief encounter in a friendly earlier. This time, the stakes are high for both teams as the spot in the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa Conference League is up for grabs in the first leg on Thursday at Kaplakriki.
The host had ended their domestic league Pepsideild with a winless run in their schedule. They have started their new season in the league on the right foot with a 1-0 win at home against Fylkir.
The Iceland contingents had to face Sligo Rovers earlier before reaching the quarterfinals. The latter was defeated with an aggregate 3-1 scoreline after two legs in the playoffs.
In the meantime, Rosenborg came into the quarterfinals with a straight ticket from Eliteserien. The away team has been unbeaten in their recent four fixtures in the domestic campaign. They will visit on the back of a 1-3 win on the road against the likes of Tromso in Eliteserien fixture.
FH vs Rosenborg Head-to-head (h2h)
The teams haven’t met before in recent times in any major competitions.
FH vs Rosenborg Prediction
FH had an easy win against Sligo Rovers in the last round of the tournament. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has lost none of their past five home matches in the schedule.
This will not affect Rosenborg visiting from a more competitive campaign in records. The away team has lost two of their recent nine outings in the schedule.
The visitor has had a couple of draws in their trips recently. This suggests a shaky defense in the middle and Lennon S of FH, who has scored all three goals in the tournament so far for the latter, will likely have an eye on the back of the net.
FH vs Rosenborg Betting tips
Both teams to score @ 1.80 (4/5).
Draw no bet: Rosenborg @ 1.40 (2/5).
