These are our Crusaders vs Rosenborg predictions and tips:

Rosenborg to Win

It’s important to point out that although these teams haven’t met in 10 years, this isn’t their first encounter in the qualifying rounds of a UEFA tournament. Crusaders and Rosenborg clashed on four occasions between 2012 and 2013, and Rosenborg won all four encounters.

Granted, those skirmishes took place a long time ago. However, Rosenborg are just starting to find their stride; they are coming off back-to-back wins over Strømsgodset and Tromsø. Although Crusaders have also enjoyed a fairly good run of form, compared to their recent opponents, Rosenborg will be a relatively bigger fish to fry. All things considered, we are leaning towards the visitors for the victory.

Goals at Both Ends

Crusaders and Rosenborg have scored and conceded goals regularly; and as a result, both teams usually get on the scoresheet when they play. It may interest you to know that both teams were amongst the goals in three of Crusaders’ last four matches. In the same vein, Rosenborg kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches, whilst scoring in 11 of their last 13 games. That said, both teams should find the back of the net.

A High-scoring Game

Previous skirmishes between these teams were mostly on the high-scoring side; as three of their four clashes featured at least three goals. Bearing that in mind, it’s also fair to point out that these teams have seen their fair share of high-scoring matches too. While seven of Rosenborg’s last nine games went north of the 2.5 goal marker, Crusaders’ last four matches have seen three goals scored per game on average. For this reason, we should expect the goals to flow in this match.
