Team News: Rosenborg BK
Rosenborg manager Trond Henriksen has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Andreas Helmersen (Meniscal Injury), Samuel Adegbenro (Unknown Injury) and André Hansen (Groin Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the opinion that Rosenborg BK and ODD Grenland should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. We therefore see a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 draw when all is said and done.
