Venue: Fosshaugane Campus (Sogndal).
Sogndal eyes a huge upset when they take the football field against the domestic heavy weights Rosenborg on Saturday.
The season haven’t gone well for Sogndal, but their recent form helped them to stay above the relegation zone. They are positioned at 11th in the league table, 3 points ahead of Kristiansund sitting at the tip of bottom three.
The last 10 rounds saw them picking up 4 wins and 4 draws, losing just twice. This is a huge improvement as they managed just 1 win from the previous six. Last week, Sogndal held Viking to a 1-1 draw, extending their unbeaten run to 2 games.
On the other hand, Rosenberg remain at the top of the table, with a 5 point cushion over second placed Brann. They thrashed Sandefjord 5-1 to keep the excellent form in front of goal. The team has now scored 11 goals in the space of three games.
However, the head-coach Kare Ingebrigtsen could be deeply worried about his team’s away form. Rosenborg haven’t won in their previous four road games. Also, their scoring record on the road is way behind their credentials back home.
Sogndal vs Rosenborg: Head-to-head
