The Rosenborg vs. Valur match will be played on Wednesday, July 18, at the Lerkendal Stadium, Trondheim. This is the Champions League first qualifying round second leg between the Norwegian and Icelandic champions. In the first leg played at Iceland, Valur recorded a minimal 1:0 victory.


  • Rosenborg was in a series of three victories in the league before the match they lost against Valur. That was the first time they failed to score in a match since March!
  • Valur was defeated only once in their last ten games in all competitions. In the last three matches they played we saw under 2.5 goals.


This will be the second encounter of these two teams. Valur won the first match they played a week ago by 1:0.


Rosenborg is second in the domestic league after 16 rounds. They have only two points less than the current leaders Brann. We had a similar situation in the previous season, and Rosenborg managed to win another championship title in the end. However, the slower start of the season might cost them in Champions League qualifiers, where they encountered a tough opponent in the first round. Rosenborg will have to score, and probably save their net in order to eliminate Valur. If we take a look at their last few games, that will surely be a tough task.

Valur surprised Rosenborg and defeated them by 1:0 in the first leg. Now they will try to defend that lead in Norway. Valur is second in the Iceland first league with the same amount of points as the leaders and their greatest rivals Stjarnan. They are in an excellent form and they might even eliminate Rosenborg.
