Austria Salzburg football champions, Rosenborg Trondheim scored 5-2 (4-0) on Thursday in Norway. However, because RB Leipzig has lost the parallel game in Celtic Glasgow 1: 2, the Salzburg can not plan for fourteen games in four games again for the Europa League semifinals.
Takumi Minamino was a man of the game in Trondheim with three goals (5th, 19th, 45th). For this Salzburg, Fredrik Gulbrandsen (37.) wrote his own goal by Even Hovland (57.). Rosenborg succeeded in 13,000 spectators from Samuel Adegbenro (52) and Nicklas Bendtner (61) only winning earnings. Salzburg is leading Group B with twelve points in front of Leipzig and Celtic with six. A point of both exceptional games against the direct competitors would reach the Salzburgians in the eighth participation in the EL group stage for the sixth start.
The last strong Hannes Wolf was not surprising at Salzburg in the start line. In the midfield Minamino attacked. Coach Marco Rose was right with his decision: Japanese man was the excellent man on the field. Minamino opened the score in the 5th minute with Stefan Lainer succeeding in passing. A short time later, he missed a great opportunity of a close range (12). After a long ball of Andre Ramalho, the 2: 0 was lost but with a value seeing volley.
The Salzburgers were obviously leading the way. The Norwegian champions were sometimes unemployed, but in the first half was dangerous before the goal: Alexander Walke had to stretch in a heading by Alexander Söderlund (31). On the other side, Gulbrandsen strikes against his compatriots. Norway gave another Lainer cross after a nice blend under the bar (37).
Then Salzburg lost a chance by the record: Amadou Haidara did not score the ball from an acute angle (41), but Munas Dabburg failed to find the keeper of the Rosenborg goal, Andre Hansen (42 & # 39 ;). Minamino completed her triple pack but before the break. The 23-year-old race, now hosting nine competitive games this season, has been completed in the second quarter after Hansen assaulted his first attempt.
Gulbrandsen's other goal was unlikely to be recognized after the break (48.). Rosenborg's first goal was against him. Adegbenro did not look good at Ramalho and Jerome Onguene's two central men, who had taken precedence over the recently suspended Marin Pongracic on the penalty area.
Minamino also had his legs playing at 5: 1. Hovland promoted the ball in the duel with the Japanese in his own goal. On the other side, a shot that stopped from former artist Arsenal Bendtner hit him in the short corner. Salzburg did not get full speed afterwards. A goal was refused to Dabbur, the Goalgetter went away (68th).
Salzburg scored more than two goals in their fourth group. The final opportunity of last season also has the opportunity to finish the EL group stage for the third time after 2009 and 2013 without losing points. He was the 20th victory in the 24st season competitive season. At home, they had Rosenborg 3-0 too no chance. In the next round, Salzburg will welcome the Red Bull Leipzig competitors on November 29. Finally, it will be on 13th December to Glasgow.
