Rosenborg vs Valerenga
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 16 June 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Lerkendal Stadion (Trondheim).
Rosenborg will have their spirits high after the manner in which they concluded their last match-day. They were on the road against one of the top performers in the league, Brann, and was struggling to make any kind of an impact. Still, they kept on trying.
Their relentless efforts finally came into fruition, two minutes from full time, as the sole goal and the winner was slotted in, to snatch the three points away from the hosts.
Whereas Valerenga might be experiencing the opposite of this feeling, as they were destroyed at home by a team from the lower tier. It put a temporary halt to the unbeaten run the team had going on.
The ill-tempered affair saw the hosts being awarded four yellow cards, and a red, as the visitors put three unanswered goals against them.
Rosenborg vs Valerenga Head-to-head (h2h)
- Rosenborg won the last four matches in a row.

- At this venue, the last 16 meetings returned 14 home wins.
Rosenborg vs Valerenga Prediction
H2h ties place Rosenborg as the overwhelming favorite to take the three points this Sunday. They won the last four meetings in a row and scored two or more goals in all of them. They also registered 18 of the last 20 wins, and the last league wins that Valerenga posted came back in 2011.
At this venue, this domination has reached even greater heights, as they won 14 of the last 16 encounters here, and lost only once in the last 14 years. Going on, the last league win posted by Valerenga at this stadium was back in 2005.
In addition, Rosenborg found the back of the net in 22 of their last 23 home h2h appearances and scored two or more goals in 15 of the last 17. It’s just logical to expect the hosts to come out on top once again.
Taking into consideration the recent form, where the visitors of this tie scored a total of 20 goals from their last seven games, and ten alone from the last two on the road, the chances for this fixture to have goals at both ends, is sky-high.
