The Dundalk vs. Rosenborg match will be played on Wednesday, July 12, at the Oriel Park, Dundalk. This is the first leg of UEFA Champions League 2nd qualifying round. Both teams are starting their pursuit for Champions League group phase from this round.


  • Dundalk is a fantastic series of five victories in the league currently. However, they are 12 points behind the leaders Cork City, with two games in hand!
  • Rosenborg lost only one out of their last seven league matches. However, they recorded three draws during that period as well, so we can't say they are in good form at the moment.


These teams haven't played against each other so far.


Like in the last season, when Dundalk was the biggest surprise in the Champions League qualifying phase, it seems that the Irish team reached the peak of their form at the best possible moment. In 2016, they were outsiders against Iceland champion FH and Belarus champion BATE, but they eliminated them! Legia Warsaw stopped them from qualifying for Champions League group phase, but Dundalk had a solid run in Europa League too, where they won four points in an active group. It is hard to believe they can make a miracle rerun, but they will certainly try!

Rosenborg is currently leading the way in their domestic league, although they are not performing spectacularly well at the moment. They are a much stronger team than Dundalk, but they will have to very careful against them if they don't want to exit the competition early like BATE. Norwegian champions will try to win in Ireland and make their life easier in the rematch.

Dundalk is in a better form at the moment, but Rosenborg is a stronger team. We expect an exciting game, and it is possible that both teams will score at least one goal.
