Champions League 1st Round Qualifying
Date: Wednesday 11th July 2018
Kick off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Hlioarendi (Reykjavik)
We will be in Iceland for this match when Valur take on Rosenborg in the first leg of first roun qualifying for the Champions League.
As expected Rosenborg will be the odds on favourites to win this away match. The team have not competed in the Champions League in recent years but were a staple fixture in the group stages in the 1990’s and 2000’s.
Valur are in the middle of their league season where they are currently in 2nd position with just goal difference separating them from over taking current leaders Stjarnan. They have lost just 1 game from the 12 played and at home they have the best record in the league with 4 wins and 2 draws from their six games played so far.
Rosenborg have broken up their domestic games in Norway for the World Cup but they are currently in 2nd place and just two points shy of leaders Brann. They come into this game having won their last 3 games in a row. They have lost 3 games from 16 matches and two of those games have been away from home.
Valur vs Rosenborg: Head to Head
These two teams have not previously met before.
Valur vs Rosenborg: Prediction
We should see an open game with many attacks from both sides.
Rosenborg will want to prove a point and they are the favourites but Valur at home in front of what should be a sell out crowd even if their stadium is a low capacity should be able to create a good atmosphere.
Our main bet is to see over 2.5 goals with maximum stakes. We will also back the correct score for small stakes.
