Team News: Rosenborg BK
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Rosenborg BK gaffer Åge Hareide to be concerned with from an otherwise complete squad. Andreas Helmersen (Meniscal Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: SK Brann
Thanks to a completely healthy group available to choose from, SK Brann boss Kåre Ingebrigtsen doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
We’re of the view that SK Brann have it within them to put a goal past this Rosenborg BK side, however that possibly won’t quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Rosenborg BK when the full-time whistle blows. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
