Game over for RBK and VIF

Rosenborg (RBK) pushed and pushed to get the settling goal against Benfica’s ten players, but never made it. Vålerenga (VIF) also played well, but without getting any reward for the hard work.

«Of course, I’m disappointed,» said Ola By Rise, Rosenborg coach, to TV 2 after his team lost out on the UEFA cup Wednesday evening. «We nearly made it. We must congratulate Benfica, they beat us overall, and then they deserve to advance.»

Benfica advanced on visiting team rule after they ended at 2-2 overall. Rosenborg took the lead early on with 2-0 thanks to Ørjan Berg and Azar Karadas, but the Portuguese star Nuno Gomez reduced it to 1-2 half way through the first round, and apparently this settled it.

Vålerenga fought bravely
Vålerenga did not advance in the UEFA cup either after Wednesday’s game.

Alan Shearer gave Newcastle the lead early on, but Erik Hagen evened the score to 1-1 after 25 minutes at St. James’ Park. 1-1 would have given extra time and possibly penalty kicks, but Shola Ameobi, who came in to replace the injured Craig Bellamy after the break, settled the game with two goals in the second half.
