The Lillestrøm SK manager Geir Bakke will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all ahead of this match thanks to a fully healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Rosenborg BK
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Rosenborg BK gaffer Kjetil Rekdal to be concerned with. Jonathan Augustinsson (Hip Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re envisaging that Rosenborg BK will need to put in a solid display to find the net against this Lillestrøm SK outfit who will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a good tussle with a 1-0 win for Lillestrøm SK at the end of the 90 minutes.
