All FK Haugesund v Rosenborg BK match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
FK Haugesund will be looking for an improved result here after the 0-2 Eliteserien defeat last time out to Viking FK.
Ylldren Ibrahimaj (30') and Zymer Bytyqi (80') scored for Viking FK.
FK Haugesund have really been misfiring in recent times. Their sum of goals stands at just 2 vs opponents over their previous 6 matches. In those games, FKH have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total 6.
Their past results show that FK Haugesund:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Rosenborg BK in their previous 2 matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
Rosenborg BK go into this match following a 2-1 Eliteserien win in the defeat of Sandefjord in their previous game.
The only scorer from Rosenborg BK was Kristoffer Zachariassen (15', 73'). Rufo Herraiz (80') scored for Sandefjord.
A run of steadfast performances by the Rosenborg BK defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their previous 6 clashes in total. During the same period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 11. Such a pattern might not be carried forward into this game, of course.
Coming into this contest, Rosenborg BK haven't been defeated in their previous 3 away league matches.
Head to head
Looking over their past head to head clashes going back to 18/06/2017 tells us that FK Haugesund have won 4 of these and Rosenborg BK 2, with the number of drawn results standing at 0.
A combined sum of 11 goals were scored between the two sides in this period, with 7 of them for FKH and 4 for Troillongan. That’s an average goals per game of 1.83.
The last league meeting featuring these clubs was Eliteserien match day 24 on 06/10/2019 when it ended FK Haugesund 2-1 Rosenborg BK.
The referee was Trond Ivar Døvle.
Team News: FK Haugesund
FK Haugesund boss Jostein Grindhaug doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash with a fully healthy squad to pick from.
We think that FKH may well opt for a 4-3-3 system, handing starts to Helge Sandvik, Fredrik Knudsen, Benjamin Tiedemann Hansen, Ulrik Fredriksen, Mikkel Desler, Christian Grindheim, Thore Pedersen, Bruno Leite, Kristoffer Velde, Benjamin Källman and Niklas Sandberg.
Team News: Rosenborg BK
Rosenborg boss Eirik Horneland has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Samuel Adegbenro (Unknown Injury), Andreas Helmersen (Meniscal Injury) and André Hansen (Groin Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the thinking that Troillongan appear most likely to play in a 4-3-3 lineup, starting the game with Julian Faye Lund, Vegar Eggen Hedenstad, Gustav Valsvik, Even Hovland, Anders Trondsen, Kristoffer Zachariassen, Edvard Tagseth, Gjermund Åsen, Pål Andre Helland, Torgeir Børven and Emil Konradsen Ceide.
In our view, FK Haugesund will have a tough ask to see themselves scoring against this Rosenborg BK outfit who should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re going for a hard-fought 0-1 win for Rosenborg BK at the end of the 90.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
