Rosenborg expectedly steamed to a three-goal cushion in the very first half of the first leg of their Europa League play-offs tie with Macedonian Shkendija seven days ago at Lerkendal Stadion. Nevertheless, the Macedonians got hope thanks to their best player, Brazilian winger Stenio Junior, who bagged the consolation goal 14 minutes from time to set the final score 3-1.

The Norwegian champions remain massive favourites to advance, though, as they have both quality and the score on their side ahead of the reverse fixture at Telekom Arena in Skopje. Rosenborg, who were deni3ed by Celtic in the second qualifying round of Champions League (3-1 on aggregate), eased past Irish Cork City in the previous Europa League round, beating the Irish champions 5-1 on aggregate.

Shkendija, on the other side, made a huge upset by eliminating Moldovan Sheriff in the second round of Champions League, but they fell 0-4 on aggregate to Austrian Salzburg in the following round.

Shkendija vs Rosenborg: Head-to-head

This will only be the second head to head encounter between the two teams.

Issam Jebali, Nicklas Bendtner and Jonathan Levi notched first-half goals for the Norwegian outfit last Thursday in Trondheim, while Shkendija only managed a late consolation goal from Stenio Junior.

Shkendija vs Rosenborg: Prediction

Qatip Osmani is well aware of how complicated task is ahead of his troops here, especially if we know that Shkendija failed to score a goal at all in last three Champions league outings. They did manage to net one past Rosenborg last week, but a potential upset would require at least three here given it’s hard to believe in a clean sheet against the red-hot Rini Coolen’s side.

The visitors come into this off the back of four straight wins in all competitions. The huge rise in form saw them overtake Brann at the very top of the Eliteserien standings after 20 rounds of the competition and it seems the Dutch manager has everything going according to plans at the moment. Rosenborg bagged seven goals in last two matches which is why we see a huge value in backing them to net two or more goals here at the 2.00 odds.
