Rosenborg (0) vs. (0) Celtic: Champions League Qualifier Second Leg – Match Preview

Celtic need a result in Norway on Wednesday when they face Rosenborg in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier.

Without a recognised striker in the first leg, Celtic were unable to break Rosenborg down and the tie remains scoreless.

The Norwegian FA allowed Rosenborg the weekend off to prepare for the second leg, however they hold a five point advantage at the top of the table.

The Scottish league campaign is yet to start, however Celtic thrashed Sunderland 5-0 in a friendly on Saturday, with Calum McGregor scoring a hat-trick.

Team news
Rosenborg’s key defender Tore Reginiussen is a major doubt having gone off injured in the first leg.

The former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner will continue to lead the line for the hosts here.

Leigh Griffiths is available again following a combination of suspension and injury and is set to be risked on Wednesday.

Moussa Dembele remains out injured, however Erick Sviatchenko is back in contention and will start with Dedryk Boyata injured.

Expected starting XI’s
Rosenborg (4-3-3): Hansen; Hedenstad, Laedre, Skjelvik, Meling; Konradsen, Jensen, Midtsjo; Jevtovic, Bendtner, De Lanlay
Celtic (4-2-3-1): Gordon; Lustig, Sviatchenko, Simunovic, Tierney; Brown,  McGregor; Forrest, Rogic, Sinclair; Griffiths
