Ajax vs Rosenborg Prediction 17 August 2017

Tournament: Europa League Qualification
Location: Amsterdam Arena
Match date: 17.08.2017 at 19:45

On August 17 2017 at 19:45 at the Amsterdam Arena in the upcoming regular game of the Europa League qualification final first leg the local Ajax will play against Rosenborg.

The success of Ajax from Amsterdam in the previous season is mostly connected with their campaign in the Europa League. Nobody expected Ajax to make it to the very final of the competition where they were outplayed by Manchester United in the end. As for the national championship, Ajax lost their race for winning the league. After such a successful season Ajax sold their two leaders and didn’t replace them, in fact. It may be the reason why Ajax didn’t show any positive results in the current season. They lost to Heracles 2:1 in the first game of the national elite division and were kicked-off form the Champions League qualification semifinal as they were outplayed by Nice.

As for one of the most successful clubs of Norway, Rosenborg, they only took part in the domestic competitions in the previous season as they didn’t manage to make it to the Europa League group stage and it was the third time in the last four seasons. As for the current Euro Cups campaign, Rosenborg started it in the quarterfinal of the Champions League qualification where they outplayed Dundalk 2:3. Yet, they had to meet Celtic in the semifinal and they lost to them 0:1 after two legs.

The Dutch Ajax and the Norwegian Rosenborg only played two games against each other and both of them were played in the year 2002 and they both finished with the draws 0:0 in Norway and 1:1 in the Netherlands. Ajax are by far not in their best conditions while Rosenborg are really good now and they are already played in the Norwegian national elite division.
