LASK Linz - Rosenborg
It’s a first-ever European group stage for Austrians LASK Linz, as they take on the champions of Norway, Rosenborg. Unbeaten in five of their last six European games on Austrian soil (W4, D1, L1), Linz will be hoping for a repeat of the last time they took on Norweigian opposition here, when they beat Lillestrøm 4-0 in Europa League (EL) qualifying last season.
With nine of Rosenborg’s last ten matches seeing both teams find the net, the Norwegians are likely to foster an entertaining game here, although they did lose five of their six EL group stage matches last term (D1), and have won just one of their previous 15 EL group stage away games (D3, L11).
Both teams playing good football. I expect goals on both sides.
