maribor vs rosenborg Tip Reason:

It wasn’t easy, but Maribor just about made it through the previous round, as their 3-2 defeat away from home allowed them to progress on away goals. Having knocked out a reasonably useful AIK Stockholm side, the Slovenian hosts will fancy themselves to do well against Rosenborg, who didn’t exactly sparkle during the last round. First time out, Maribor made light work of beating Valur, as they won by three goals to nil away from home, before adding to their lead on their own patch, winning 2-0. Such a comfortable win would’ve left the Slovenians feeling confident ahead of their game against AIK in the previous round, and such confidence paid dividends, as Darko Milanič’s men won the first leg by two goals to one at this venue. On that occasion, they were sturdy rather than spectacular, producing 0.9 expected goals for and conceding 0.32. Away from home, Maribor found it much harder to keep tabs on AIK’s forward-line, though they did respond by creating much more once the game began to stretch. Rosenborg were also comfortable winners first time out in qualifying, as they brushed aside Northern Irish outfit Linfield, winning by six goals to nil on aggregate. However, the Norwegians were far from convincing against Belarusian side BATE during the last round. At home in the second leg, Rosenborg registered an uncomplicated 2-0 win, though away from home, they looked very shaky, as they lost by two goals to one. On that occasion, not only did Eirik Horneland’s men lose, but they were outplayed in all areas. By registering just three shots on target and creating only 0.76 expected goals for, Rosenborg created a rather negative impression. If we compare Maribor’s home efforts with Rosenborg’s travelling efforts, then it’s the hosts who just about look the more likely winners, though there’s not much in it. Rosenborg have scored three and conceded two in two away qualifiers, while Maribor have scored four and conceded one in two home qualifiers. That evidence suggests that Maribor have done much better at home than Rosenborg have away, though if we take only the game where either were tested, there’s much less of a disparity. At home against AIK, Maribor created only 0.9 expected goals for, which isn’t much more than 0.76 Rosenborg posted away against BATE. Keeping this in mind, the visitors look ever so slightly overpriced.
