Stromsgodset vs Rosenborg Prediction & Match Preview

Stromsgodset vs Rosenborg BK
Norway Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion, Drammen.

Rosenborg BK are far away from their glory days of dominance in Norway. This team has failed to challenge Molde in the title race for last couple of years, and nothing changed in the season 2020 so far.

The most popular team in the country is sitting in the 4th place with 16 points deficit from Bodo/Glimt. Anything but a victory against Stromsgodset would be a final nail for their championship hopes.

The current odds for home victory are at high 3.50 rate, while chances for Rosenborg to secure 4th victory on the road in this campaign are at 1.95. Stromsgodset are far from being a naïve team, but their recent form is not looking promising.

Stromsgodset vs Rosenborg Head-to-head

Previous results and stats are obviously heavily favouring the squad from Trondheim. Rosenborg have won 25 out of 40 games against Stromsgodset, while losing only five. When it comes to matches at this stadium, their win rate is under 50%.

They have already met once this season, in July at Larkendal Stadion. Rosenborg BK celebrated a comfortable 3-0 FT win thanks to the goals of Helland, Zachariassen and Borven.

Stromsgodset won only one out of the last sixteen games against Rosenborg.

Stromsgodset vs Rosenborg Prediction

Even though the gap from table leaders is huge, Rosenborg BK are doing really well lately on all fronts. Squad led by popular Norge coach Trond Henriksen has won four out of the last six Eliteserien matches, losing only to Odd Grenland on the road.

They are also doing really well on the European scene, eliminating Breidablik 4-2 and facing Ventspils next week. Team’s biggest start Kristoffer Zachariassen is surely going to be popular choice for the goal scorers market. So far he bagged seven goals in domestic matches.

Stromsgodset are currently 11th with 19 points, just four points above the relegation zone. Tradition is also against them when it comes to duels against Rosenborg. This squad won only one out of last five Eliteserien games and kept zero clean sheets. Visitors should be able to take all three points here.
