Tromsø IL boss Gaute Helstrup will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this match owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.

In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Rosenborg BK manager Åge Hareide to be concerned about. Per Ciljan Skjelbred (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
It seems to us that Rosenborg BK and Tromsø IL could well cancel each other out, with goals at a real premium.
We’ll see, but this could easily end up all-square. We’re therefore seeing a very even match with a 0-0 scoreline by the conclusion of this game.
