Is Hearts vs Rosenborg on TV? How to follow UEFA Europa Conference League qualifier, live stream and KO time
Hearts will look to overturn 2-1 deficit at Tynecastle
and live on Freeview channel 276
Hearts will welcome the Norwegian side Rosenborg later this evening in the hope of overturning a 2-1 defeat. The Jambos travelled to Trondheim last week and despite a goal from Lawrence Shankland, who has since apparently been attracting the attention of the Saudi Pro League, the Gorgie-based side came away without the vital points.
However, there is still another chance for the capital club to steal the win. Speaking ahead of the fixture, Rosenborg’s boss said of their upcoming opponents: “I expect a very offensive opponent. I expect a lot of action, noise, fun, from the stadium. I expect us to try and repeat our performance from last Thursday,”
“We will try to win, have a good performance and learn quickly. We have some injuries, a little bit of fatigue in some players, so there could be some changes.”

What are the odds?
Here are the latest odds according to Bet365:
- Hearts: 19/20
- Draw: 11/4
- Rosenborg: 11/5
Rosenborg’s winger Jayden Nelson, scorer of the second goal in the Norwegians’ 2-1 first-leg win, has not travelled to Scotland due to a hamstring injury. Striker Ole Saeter is also injured, whilst there are some doubts over defender Erlend Dahl Reitan.
Hearts are set to be without injured midfielder Peter Haring after he was pictured in a protective boot following Sunday’s goalless draw against Kilmarnock. Goalkeeper Craig Gordon and centre-back Craig Halkett will also be absent as they recover from long-term injuries. However, midfielder Beni Baningime is back in the squad after tweaking a hamstring in the first leg.
