A second-half strike from substitute Stefan Kiessling handed Bayer 04 Leverkusen the narrowest of victories away against Group K rivals Rosenborg BK.

After a goalless first half at Lerkendal Stadion, Leverkusen were rewarded for their more attacking outlook after the break, yet there was a strong hint of good fortune to their decisive effort. Sidney Sam’s powerful attempt cannoned off the chest of Kiessling and past the stranded Daniel Örlund for the only goal of the game.
