Champions League 2nd round tips & preview
Rosenborg were the champions of the last Norwegian League (Tippeligaen). It is the 20th time they conquer the title and have real chances to triumph in the current season as well: the 5-2 win
over Sarpsborg in the previous round gave Rosenborg the leadership.
This team is used to play international matches and is favourite in the scandinavian derby vs Norrkoping (Sweden).
In the last season, Astana has become the first Kazaki team to reach the Champions League Group Stage where they obtained 4 points (one of those vs the runner ups Atletico Madrid).
It is not going to be easy for Astana to reach the next stage for the second year in a row, but meanwhile we have good sensations in sight of the clash in Lithuania vs the modest Zalgiris.
Ludogorets Razgrad won the last two editions of Bulgarian League and have become a very important reality and should easily beat the modest Mladost (Montenegro).
Partizani Tirana started the Europa League Qualifiers but has been selected to fight for a place in Champions League after the exclusion of Skenderbeu, due to some weird betting fluxes on Albanian League matches. Partizani is very solid in the defensive phase but probably the opponent, Ferencvaros, will take advantage of their elder experience in European clashes.
Dundalk-Hafnarfjordur is expected to be not so pleasant to watch as both teams tend to give priority to the defensive phase and do no create goal attempts with ease. Under 2.5.
