‘We will go for it’ says skipper, Cynic Xtra Podcast on Rosenborg tie

DANISH defender Mike Jensen has told Celtic that the Norwegians have not given up hope of progressing to the third round of qualifying to play AEK Athens.

The Rosenborg skipper realises the size of the task facing him and his team-mates on Wednesday when Celtic go to Trondheim to defend their 3-1 lead earned so impressively at Celtic Park last midweek.

Birger Meling gave Celtic an early fright by scoring for Rosenborg but Celtic’s French connection soon sorted that out with Odsonne Edouard scoring a couple and Ntcham another to give Celtic a commanding lead. But it could – and should – have been more and that maybe gives the Norwegians a chance to recover.

“We are at home and it is entirely up to us to go for it,” Jansen stated.

“None of us believes we are out. We have faith that we can go and beat Celtic on our own soil and do enough to qualify.

“If we score first, we will have a very good chance. I hope our fans turn out and give us good backing.”
