The season in Norwegian Eliteserien started almost four months ago, and Rosenborg is the first on the table after 17 rounds with 35 points, which is five more than the second-placed Sarpsborg. Rosenborg fulfilled their primary goal in Scotland - they recorded a clean sheet, and they are now in the driving seat in this clash. If they win, they will certainly qualify for the next qualifying round. However, a goalless draw in the first match was proven to be tricky for numerous teams in the past, so Rosenborg has to be careful against dangerous Scottish champion. Latest matches: Rosenborg BK

Celtic's remarkable run can to an end and despite the 4:0 defeat against Lyon came in the friendly match without competitive meaning, it affected Celtic's self-confidence. They didn't perform as they expected in the first game, and they will be more aggressive and attack-minded in the second leg.
