Rosenborg come into this game with a 1-1 draw at the Stabaek reception, in a match for the Norwegian Championship. Coach Rini Coolen must keep the team in 4-3-3, benefiting possession of the ball and organized attacks through the flanks: Jensen is a player of great technical quality and very strong in the offensive transition. For this game the coach can not count on Konradsen, Helland and Adegbenro, all with physical problems.

In the last 19 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 13 of their 33 goals between minutes (0′-15 ‘).

Cork City comes into this game with a good away win against Home Farm, 1-5, in a match for the Irish Cup. It is important to underline that the Irish have won 4 times in the last 5 matches played in several competitions. In this return match is expected to coach John Caulfield bet on a more offensive team, with the lines advanced, looking in the best way to explore the space in the back of the opposing defense. Cummins is the great highlight of this team, with 13 goals scored in the Irish championship. For this game away from home the foreign trainer can count on all his players.
