Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET

After regaining their recognizable form, the governing Rosenborg will face Haugesund on Saturday. However, the hosts are also in the solid form themselves as they stand unbeaten in the last four games across two competitions.

Haugesund

The hosts are in the tenth position with 15 points collected. They recently endured a three-game losing streak in the domestic league, but they finally stepped up with two good results in the last round. At first, they drew Sarpsborg 08 on the home turf, followed by the 0-1 victory against Aalesund.

The hosts earned only 6 games in Haugesund compared to 9 points from the matches on the road.

Rosenborg

After the painful winless run, Rosenborg are back on the winning track as they beat Stromsgodset 3-1 last weekend. However, they need to confirm their latest victory against Haugesund, so Rosenborg’s motivation is in check.

Rosenborg are in the first place with a one-point advantage over Sarpsborg 08 who are patiently rallying behind the champions. The visitors are without a doubt the best away team so far. After 5 games played, they are yet to suffer a defeat as they won three while drawing twice. Also, they scored 7 while allowing only 2 goals in the process.

Haugesund vs Rosenborg: Head-to-head

As expected, head-to-head meetings point to another Rosenborg’s victory. Haugesund are without a win since 2014. In the last five games on this stadium, Rosenborg and Haugesund won two apiece with one game ending without a winner.

Haugesund vs Rosenborg: Prediction

Rosenborg’s away games weren’t rich with goals so far, same goes for Haugesund’s games on the home turf, so we can expect another low-scoring affair on Saturday. Rosenborg will approach the game cautiously and patiently wait for opponent’s mistake. The guests are eyeing another clean sheet, so a win to nil in favor of Rosenborg wouldn’t be a surprise.

Haugesund vs Rosenborg: Bet Tips

The first bet will be Under 2.5 goals at 2.00.

If you prefer higher risk and reward you can go for Rosenborg to win to nil at the odds of 3.20.
