Rosenborg vs PSV for the Europa League group match on Thursday at Lerkendal Stadium.
The two teams meet on Thursday to play a new Europa League matchday. Rosenborg and PSV are part of Group D of the European competition.
The Dutch are second in the group with three points, but with a goal difference worse than the leader while Rosenborg is third without points.
Alexander Soderlund is the team’s top scorer with seven goals. Adegbenro and Jensen follow with four goals each.
Their last game was in the local Norwegian tournament, and they tied goalless.
The only player who cannot play this match is Reginiussen.
Despite the useful statistics that Rosenborg has in the local tournament, in international competitions is not playing a proper role. Rosenborg did not qualify for the Champions League and in the Europa League lost in the debut match.
It is, together with Sporting Lisbon, the favourite of Group D of the Europa League. They haven’t lost any of their last 13 games.
PSV have a high-level offensive line. In the last ten games, they have scored 28 goals, and their rivals have only scored five.
On the first round, they won Sporting Lisbon, the other strong Group D team of the competition.
For this match, they will not be able to count on Gaston Pereiro. It shouldn’t be a problem because they have their best scorer: Donyell Malen, who has eight goals and one assist. Dumfries and Bruma complete the powerful attack of the Dutch.
Both teams have met in the past. The clash between the two reflects two games played, and both ended with victory for PSV. At that time, it was a Champions League game, dating back to 2004.
Remember Rosenborg in the last ten games this season has played five times at home and has not lost.
PSV are undoubtedly the favourite of this game, despite playing as a visitor. They have a history in their favour, by the team and the past results.
