Championships of Norway and Sweden are not pause, which means that both teams are in top form. The champions of the two countries for the last season have performed very strongly during this season – Rosenborg is a leader in the Norwegian elite, while Norrköping is in second place three points behind leaders Malmo.
Over the weekend, Rosenborg beat 5:2 Sarpsborg, which back to the winning way. Norrköping did in a series of eight games unbeaten in the Swedish championship. In their last match, they beat Djurgårdens with 1:0.
Ten years ago Rosenborg was an integral part of the group stage of the competition, but their performance in recent years is not so good, and by 2007 had not been a participant in the main part of the tournament. Their opponent does Norrköping will debut in the strongest European club tournament on the continent, so the experience is on the side of Norwegians.
Last season Rosenborg ending a five-year wait for the title, now the team from Trondheim is ambitious to get back on the big stage in Europe. I expect a very strong home game of them and victory over the Swedish team that surely will be presented good, but would not be able to avoid defeat in this meeting
