The Norwegian League titleholder, Rosenborg, met Linfield at away field in their second qualifying round game for UEFA Champions League. Neither Linfield nor Rosenborg could score a goal and the game ended 0-0.
In matches in the three qualifying rounds and the play-off stage, clubs play two matches against each other on a home-and-away basis. The club which scores the greater aggregate of goals qualifies for the next round, with away goals and then penalties used to determine the winner in the event of a draw.
Second leg match will be played at Lerkendal Stadion next Wednesday, 21st July, where Rosenborg must win in order to qualify to the next round.
