Ranheim vs Rosenborg Prediction & Match Preview

Ranheim vs Rosenborg
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Thursday, 4 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: EXTRA Arena (Trondheim).

The fortunes of these two teams have reversed in the last few match-days. Ranheim entered a period without wins, and sadly, the last two were against teams fighting relegation. Even at home, they have failed to consistently put on good displays.

The last day, their game against Stabaek ended in a goalless draw. Considering the fact that the opponents have scored the least number of goals in the league, more was expected from Ranheim.

At present, Rosenborg may be the best squad in the Eliteserien when it’s taken into consideration that they posted wins in four of the last five fixtures. Impressively, three of these four wins came against sides higher in league standings.

The away form of the team could be improved though. So far they have scored just three goals on the road, and have registered just a win.

Ranheim vs Rosenborg Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Six of the last eight wins went to Rosenborg.
  • Eight of the last eleven fixtures had goals from both teams.
  • In official encounters, the visitors hold a 100% winning record at this venue.
  • Both teams found the back of the net in every meeting at this stadium, bar one.

Ranheim vs Rosenborg Prediction

Rosenborg was unbeaten in nine of their last ten matches and had a six-game winning run in this stretch. On the road, they were unbeaten in five of their last six tries and won four of these as well. Importantly, six of the last eight h2h wins went to this side, and the team had a four-match winning run through this stretch.

Moreover, Ranheim has so far recorded wins over this opponent in only friendlies and lost all of their official games against them at this venue.

As such, with the current form in mind, the top pick is for the visitors to avoid a loss.

Going on, take into consideration the fact that the hosts of this tie found the back of the net in six of their last eight games, and in 13 of their last 15 home ties. Also, their counterparts conceded in three of their last four ties, and in five of their last six on the road.

In addition, eight of the last eleven h2h encounters had both sides on the scorecard, and so did all of the meetings at this venue, bar one. With these in mind, the BTTS option should provide good returns.
