Rosenborg BK will be looking for another win after a 1-2 Eliteserien triumph vs SK Brann.
For Rosenborg BK, the goals were scored by Even Hovland (45') and Carlo Holse (90'). Gilbert Koomson (5') scored for SK Brann.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Rosenborg BK have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Troillongan have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 8 goals in the process. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.
Their past results show that Rosenborg BK:
- are unbeaten in the league by Vålerenga in their last 16 matches. It's quite some record.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games.
Vålerenga head into the meeting following a 2-1 Eliteserien win with the downing of Viking FK in their previous outing.
For Vålerenga, goals were scored by Matthías Vilhjálmsson (18') and Deyver Vega (86'). Ylldren Ibrahimaj (72') scored for Viking FK.
The numbers tell their own story, and Vålerenga have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 12 goals overall. At the back, Enga could really do with shoring things up. With no two games being the same, time will tell if that trend might persist in this upcoming game.
Coming into this fixture, Vålerenga have not beaten Rosenborg BK when having played them away from home in the previous 14 league games. A shocking away run it has been.
Head to head
Delving into their past head to head meetings stretching back to 28/05/2017 tells us that these encounters have not been happy ones for Vålerenga. They’ve not managed to get themselves any wins at all while Rosenborg BK have remained in the ascendancy, getting wins in 67% of those ties.
A total of 18 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 14 of them for Troillongan and 4 being from Enga. That is an average goals per game value of 3.
The last league game between the two was Eliteserien match day 20 on 01/09/2019 which finished with the scoreline of Vålerenga 1-1 Rosenborg BK.
The referee was Rohit Saggi.
Team News: Rosenborg BK
Andreas Helmersen (Meniscal Injury), Erlend Dahl Reitan (Unknown Injury) and Anders Konradsen (Muscle Injury) will not be able to play for Rosenborg gaffer Eirik Horneland.
We are thinking that Troillongan look set to opt for a 4-3-3 formation in the match, beginning the first half with André Hansen, Anders Trondsen, Even Hovland, Tore Reginiussen, Vegar Eggen Hedenstad, Kristoffer Zachariassen, Marius Lundemo, Gjermund Åsen, Samuel Adegbenro, Dino Islamovic and Pål Andre Helland.
Team News: Vålerenga
Thanks to a largely available squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Vålerenga gaffer Dag-Eilev Fagermo to contend with. Adam Kwarasey (Back trouble) won’t be in action.
It’s our belief that Enga will likely elect for a 4-3-3 formation, starting Kristoffer Klaesson, Christian Borchgrevink, Jonatan Tollås Nation, Ivan Näsberg, Sam Adekugbe, Herolind Shala, Fredrik Oldrup Jensen, Magnus Lekven, Aron Dönnum, Matthias Vilhjalmsson and Osame Sahraoui.
In this match, Rosenborg BK look likely to fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding against Vålerenga, who may well struggle scoring a goal of their own.
We can therefore see a decent 2-0 margin for Rosenborg BK at the end of this one.
