The Norwegian giants are in the middle of their domestic campaign and they managed to get back in the title race after a poor start of the season.

They are enjoying a streak of six matches without suffering a defeat in all competitions. Norwegian champions participated in the Champions League qualifiers, but they got knocked out by Celtic.

In the previous round of the Europa League qualifiers, Nicklas Bendtner and the lads easily eliminated Cork City with a 5-0 aggregate win.

The hosts improved their defending lately and they have allowed just two goals in the last six occasions.

Shkendija are one of the biggest overachievers in the continental qualifiers as they managed to reach the third round of the top continental cup qualifiers where they got eliminated by Salzburg.

Qatip Osmani’s side managed to beat TNS and Sheriff on their way although they had some troubles in the first round.

However, the visitors got into a bad streak of five matches without celebrating a victory and they scored just twice during that period.

In the domestic championship, Shkendija tied two draws in the opening rounds.

Rosenborg vs Shkendija: Head-to-head

This is going to be the first occasion for these two sides to face each other. Rosenborg have already played against a FYR Macedonian side in the Europa League group stage in the previous season, when they won four points from two matches against Vardar.

Rosenborg vs Shkendija: Prediction

Rosenborg are strong favorites in this one and they should be able to secure the home victory and the advantage from the first leg match. They are in much better form and have much more experience in these clashes.

The visitors have some troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net lately, while the home side tightened up their defence. It wouldn’t be surprising if the hosts manage to keep their net intact.
