The victory would have earned Rosenborg a place in the second qualifying round of the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League, but since the club already had qualified to the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League as winners of the 2015 Tippeligaen, this berth was passed down to Odd, fourth-place fininshers in the league.
