Dynamo routinely eliminated Saburtalo from Georgia in the second qualifying round after winning them twice with a clean sheet. It was not that easy against Ferencvaros in the third round but mostly because they missed so many times in the 1st leg played in Zagreb. They took an early lead and then lower their guard so the match ended as 1-1 draw. Dinamo proved that are a much better team than the Hungarian champions in the 2nd leg when they excelled and won by even 0-4. Ademi and Olmo played very good and these two players were the most deserving for the victory. In the meantime, Dinamo won in the Croatian first league after turning the result up-side down and playing with a totally different starting line-up.
Probable lineups Dinamo Zagreb: Livakovic – Stojanovic, Dilaver, Peric, Leovac – Moro, Ademi – Hajrovic, Olmo, Orsic – Petkovic
Rosenborg also passed the first obstacle without any problems which was quite and expected since their opponent was Linfield. It was more difficult against Bata Borisov and they lost away by 2-1. In the 2nd leg Rosenborg won at home by 2-0, where both goals were scored in the second half. It was expected that will have more problems the third qualifying round against Maribor but they won away 1-3 and everything was pretty much resolved with that. Rosenborg won the 2nd leg by the same result. Midfielder Konradsen and striker Soderlund are in excellent shape and each of them scored by five goals. Rosenborg is undefeated in previous six rounds of the Norwegian championship but they occupy only the fourth place in the table.
