With a 4-1 aggregate victory over Brann in qualifying, Rosengard secured their spot in the group stage. However, the Swedish champions have found it difficult to adapt to the main draw.
Rosengard was defeated 2-1 by Bayern Munich despite taking the lead in their group’s opening match.
Then, on matchday two, they were defeated 4-1 by Barcelona, and in their most recent Champions League match, they came up just short against Benfica.
Rosengard are currently last in Group D with no points to their name and six points separating them from the top two.
Due to the fact that Rosengard’s domestic campaign ended at the beginning of November, they have had two weeks to get ready for their match against Benfica on Wednesday.
If Benfica defeats Rosengard and the German champions lose to Barcelona, they would tie Bayern on points.
The Portuguese champions lost 3-2 to Bayern Munich despite having a two-goal lead after a demoralising 9-0 loss to Barcelona to start the Champions League group stage.
Benfica managed to defeat Rosengard to earn their first win of the group stage after passing up the chance to defeat Bayern with all three points.
Benfica won by a slim margin of 1-0 thanks to a goal from Cloe Lacasse in the first half, moving them three points behind the top two teams.
Benfica will be confident that they can defeat Rosengard on Wednesday after winning their last six games overall.
