Akintola’s Goal Fails To Lift Rosenborg Past Dinamo In UCL Playoffs

Nigeria winger, David Akintola, scored an 11th minute goal in Rosenborg’s UEFA Champions League playoffs return leg match against Dinamo Zaghreb Tuesday which ended 1-1 at the 21,421 capacity Lerkendal Stadium but his effort did not stop the club from crashing out, Completesports.com reports.

Dinamo Zaghreb had a 2-0 advantage from the first leg going into the game.

Amer Gojak cancelled out Akintola’s early goal for Rosenborg lead on 71 minutes, handing Dinamo a 3-1 aggregate victory.

Babajide was later subbed off in the 74th minute by Yann-Erik de Lanlay

Akintola’s compatriot in Rosenborg , Samuel Adegbenro, was on for the entire 90 minutes.

Akintola, 23, is on loan from Danish side FC Midtjylland. He arrived Midtjylland in 2015 from FC Ebedei on five-year contract.

He has had loan spells at Thisted (2015-2016), Jerry (2017), Haugesund (2018) before his arrival at Rosenborg in 2019 for yet another loan deal.
