Mjondalen vs Rosenborg Prediction & Match Preview

Mjondalen vs Rosenborg
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Isachsen Stadion (Mjøndalen).

Two teams with the contrasting performance this year will face off on Saturday. Mjondalen is returning home after the away win against Brann. That was their second win on the trot and it helped them get out of the losing run. From 14 games they now have four wins and eight defeats.

Rosenborg is also coming into this game after consecutive wins. They are currently standing fourth in the table with seven wins and four defeats. The alarming fact for them is that three of those four defeats came away from home. With only 13 goals conceded they are the best defensive unit in this season.

  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in four of their last five head to head clashes.

  • Both those games had more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in all those matches as well.

Mjondalen vs Rosenborg: Prediction

The majority of their recent clashes had many goals. Both sides hit the target in three recent games across different venues. All their head to head games at this ground had goals at both ends of the field as well. Since both of them are on a scoring streak we can expect the same in this tie as well.

Even though Rosenborg is in the top five they have issues playing away from home. From the six away games this season they have lost three and have only two wins to show for. Currently, they are without a win in three away matches on the trot. Apart from two wins, the home team has lost four of their six games in front of their own crowd. In the head to head history, the away team is on top right now. So I am backing a draw with both teams getting goals this weekend.
