Haugesund vs Rosenborg: Preview and Predictions

Haugesund vs Rosenborg
Norwegian Eliteserien
Date: Monday, 21 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Haugesund Stadion, Haugesund.

The most interesting clash of the Matchday will be played at Haugesund Stadion where the Arabs are set to play host to the defending champions Rosenborg on Monday afternoon. The hosts will thus continue the series of super tough fixtures after facing the runaway leaders Brann on Wednesday.

Eirik Horneland has reasons to be satisfied with his men’s display against the table-toppers as Haugesund held Brann to 1-1 draw on the road to extend the thread to eight straight games without a loss in all competitions. The streak will be on a heavy test on Monday, though, but such form suggests a serious resistance from the Arabs (if nothing) against Rosenborg.

Haugesund vs Rosenborg Head-to-head

  • Troillongan were the dominant force in the history of head to head encounters with Haugesund.
  • They won 16, drew 4 and lost 5 of 25 H2H matches.
  • Nonetheless, Haugesund stunned Rosenborg in last two meetings (1-0 on both occasions).

Haugesund vs Rosenborg Prediction

Rosenborg have been very tough to break down lately shipping just one goal in last eight games across competitions. Troillongan won seven and drew one of these matches and they will come into this in high spirits after easing past Lillestrom 3-0 on Wednesday. Last term’s top scorer of Eliteserien Nicklas Bendtner was on target in the mentioned victory and stopping the Dane striker will be the main challenge for the hosts here.

Nevertheless, Haugesund proved out to be a tricky opposition to Rosenborg in the most recent head to head history. Given the hosts will also enter the game high on confidence, we have reasons to expect the hosts to put up a serious effort and keep it a low-scoring contest for as long as possible.

The best of betting options would thus be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.75. Braver tipsters can back under 0.5 goals in the first half at the odds of 2.75.
