“One of the great performances in Irish football history” – that’s what Dundalk need to beat Rosenborg according to their manager Stephen Kenny.
The Lilywhites took the lead in the home leg of their Champions League second qualifying round tie only to surrender the advantage and draw 1-1 a week ago.
With Celtic 2-0 up against Linfield the winner is certain to face the Scottish champions. Kenny believes the Norwegians have already began planning for that:
“We’ve a lot of motivation. We’re not booking our hotels for Glasgow but I’m sure they are.
“There’s a lot of football to be played here and if we play as well as we did last week, we’ve a great chance.
“They've been in the group stages for 15 of the last 22 years. This is the first round. For them to lose to Irish opposition would be a catastrophe.”
