Resolute Rosenborg hold firm

Rosenborg BK 0-0 FK Crvena Zvezda The home side claim a draw despite the dismissal of Ørjan Berg.

Rosenborg BK earned a goalless draw against FK Crvena Zvezda at the Lerkendal stadium in Trondheim in the UEFA Cup second round first leg.

Game brought forward
The tie was played eight days before the rest of the second-round ties after Crvena Zvezda requested that the match be brought forward to allow them extra time to prepare for a potentially crucial league derby game against Serbo-Montenegrin title holders FK Partizan on 8 November.

Berg dismissed
The Norwegian champions, who wrapped up a 12th successive league title at the end of September, were able to hold on and prevent their visitors scoring a vital away goal despite playing most of the second half with ten men after the dismissal of Ørjan Berg.

Second booking
The Rosenborg midfield player was sent off 12 minutes after half-time having collected a second yellow card. Despite the numerical disadvantage, however, the Norwegian side kept the game goalless to leave the tie finely poised ahead of the second leg in Belgrade on 27 November.
