Rosenborg vs LASK Prediction
Rosenborg dropped points last week on the road after the hosts managed no more than a 2-2 draw against Viking. The home side are now sitting fourth in the Eliteserien, and are in danger of missing out on a qualifying spot to the Europa next season as well.
Eirik Horneland’s men have come out on top just twice in their last ten games in all competitions. Having featured at the losing end in all of their Group D clashes so far, the home side are also out of contention to progress to the round of 32.
The Norwegian outfit have not been faring well in their recent home clashes either. They have been alternating between wins and defeats in their previous four games here.
On the other hand, LASK recorded their sixth consecutive win in their most recent matchup with Tirol on the road. The visitors slotted two unanswered goals past their counterparts in that latter clash, and have now kept a clean sheet in three of their previous four games.
At the moment, the guests are sitting second in Group D. They are also unbeaten in their previous two Europa clashes, the last of which was a thumping 4-1 win over PSV at home. The visitors were also successful in registering the win in their previous meeting with Rosenborg.
Taking into account the erratic form that the hosts are on, and the evident difference in quality between the two sides, LASK are the favorites to secure all three points in this one.
Furthermore, Rosenborg have been struggling to get their names on the scoresheet, and have found the back of the net just once in Group D. Meanwhile the visitors have racked up six goals to their tally, albeit only one of which came on the road.
With both sides preferring defense over offense, count on LASK to secure the bragging rights and to keep the scorecards below 3.5 goals as well.
