Rosenborg vs Aalesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 16 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Lerkendal Stadion (Trondheim).
The Troll Children are fifth in the table with just four points between them and a Europa qualification spot. They have done well so far winning 6 and losing four. There is no other backline that has conceded fewer than the hosts.
Aalesund needs a miracle to save this season from the spot they are in right now. They were promoted after lifting the title in the second tier, but they have not found a rhythm at the top level. Also, they have the weakest defense in this campaign with 40 goals conceded in just 13 games. We can expect that stat to worsen after this game.
Rosenborg vs Aalesund: Head-to-head (h2h)

- Rosenborg has not lost any league head to head game at this ground against Aalesund.
- In their last five competitive matches, the home team has three wins and a loss.
- The only win for Aalesund at this ground came in a Cup game back in June 2019.
- The vast majority of their meetings at this ground saw both teams scoring.
- Also, most of those games had more than 2.5 goals at full time.
Rosenborg vs Aalesund: Prediction
The home team is on a whole another level compared to the team at the bottom. There is little to no chance that the visitors pick up all three points in this one. They have never tasted victory against this opposition at this ground in any league game. The head to head stats points towards a high scoring game. The home side has netted two or more goals in all four previous home matches this season. They have also done the same in the majority of meetings with Aalesund here.
The visitors are conceding at an average of three goals per game so far. So I am backing a high scoring game with the home team netting two or more goals.
