Rosenborg vs Sporting CP Prediction & Match Preview

Rosenborg vs Sporting CP
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Lerkendal Stadion (Trondheim).

Rosenborg is practically out of contention for qualification, and one more loss would seal their fate in the competition. They own the dead-last position in the table and possess a 100% losing record as of now.

At present, the fight for the tag of the group champions is between PSV and Sporting. And likely, these two would be progressing to the next stage. The Portuguese outfit, who are the visitors in this upcoming game, need to keep pace with the former Dutch champions. And in that regard, need to script a victory this Thursday.

Rosenborg vs Sporting CP Prediction

The Troll Children twice messed up their lead the last day to finally share the spoils with Stromsgodset. They had opened their account in the first 15 minutes itself but conceded two in a row to let that advantage go. As the match progressed, they figured out a way to cancel out the conceded lead and to post a one-goal surplus of their own.

However, late into the fixture, in the 90+1st minute, Eirik Horneland’s men conceded to finish out the match with a 3-3 scoreline.

This has certainly affected their confidence, and already they are on the verge of getting eliminated from the Europa. They have lost all of their ties in the contest, and have scored a single goal in total from their efforts.

On the other hand, their opposite number not only comes from a much superior domestic league but has performed well in all of their matches so far. And this includes the 1-0 win against Rosenborg as well.

Against PSV, the Green and Whites were unlucky to have lost, as they netted twice on the road against the former’s three.

As a result of these displays, Jorge Fernandes’s men are placed second in the table, and with toppers Eindhoven showing no signs of slowing down, Sporting will have to sweat it out on the pitch to deliver the victory. And if the aforementioned observations hold any merit, a win for the guests seems the likely outcome.
