Rosenborg vs Sogndal
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Lerkendal Stadion.
The reigning champions will be super motivated to bounce back after a surprising defeat to Haugesund after the international break.
The slip up caused the drop to the second position in Eliteserien standings and the victory over Sogndal is an absolute imperative for Kare Ingebrigtsen and his men.
Rosenborg opened the new campaign in the top flight of the Norwegian football in a superb fashion, but their form saw a huge slide over the last couple of weeks.
Troillongan started to show signs of vulnerability as the loss to Haugesund was their third consecutive slip up on the road.
Ingebrigtsen’s men conceded at least a goal in each of their last seven matches in all competitions including the cup fixture against the likes of Tynset and Levanger.
The story is quite opposite with Sogndal whose players significantly raised the level of their game in the most recent period.
Erik Bakke’s main goal before the start of the season was to save the elite class status, but appetites suddenly grew bigger as the team lost only a single out of last seven Eliteserien matches.
Rosenborg vs Sogndal: Head to head
Rosenborg have dominated this match-up entirely as they allowed Sogndal take no more than a single victory in 24 head to head meetings.
The gulf in quality is ever more expressed at Lerkendal Stadion where Rosenborg took 11 wins in 12 games.
Rosenborg vs Sogndal: Prediction
We’ll skip any massive stakes bets on the reigning champions at the ridiculously low 1/5 odds.
According to everything written above, the value has to be with Sogndal who are 11/10 not to lose by two or more goals on Saturday.
