Team News: Strømsgodset IF
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Strømsgodset IF gaffer Henrik Pedersen to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Prosper Mendy (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t play.
We think that Godset look set to use the 4-3-3 formation in the match and select Viljar Myhra, Nicholas Mickelson, Niklas Gunnarsson, Sondre Fosnæss Hanssen, Lars-Christopher Vilsvik, Johan Hove, Jack Ipalibo, Mikkel Maigaard, Moses Mawa, Lars-Jørgen Salvesen and Kristoffer Tokstad.
Team News: Rosenborg BK
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Rosenborg BK manager Trond Henriksen to be concerned about. Andreas Helmersen (Meniscal Injury) won’t be playing here.
We are inclined to think that Troillongan seem most likely to play in a 4-3-3 formation with a starting lineup of Julian Faye Lund, Erlend Dahl Reitan, Even Hovland, Tore Reginiussen, Vegar Eggen Hedenstad, Kristoffer Zachariassen, Edvard Tagseth, Gjermund Åsen, Torgeir Børven, Dino Islamovic and Carlo Holse.
We’re thinking that Rosenborg BK will, in all probability, get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
In contrast, Strømsgodset IF will be up against it getting goals but we do see them pulling one back during this clash.
We’re therefore expecting to see a decent 1-3 winning score for Rosenborg BK when all’s said and done.
