Tromso vs Rosenborg Prediction & Match Preview

Tromso vs Rosenborg
Norway Eliteserien,
Date: Sunday, 18 July 2021
Kick-off 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Alfheim Stadion.

Rosenborg travel to the north of the country to battle Tromso in the 13th round of Eliteserien on Sunday afternoon.

The drought is finally over for Rosenborg who snapped a five-game winless streak last weekend, beating the 4th-placed Kristiansund 1-0 in Trondheim. Forward Dino Islamovic made the difference netting the only goal of the game 15 minutes in. It was only the second goal of the season for the Montenegrin striker who has thus gained much-needed confidence ahead of important fixtures this summer.

The aforementioned negative run kept Rosenborg (the biggest club in Norway) 10 points shy of Mold at the top of the standings. They clearly can’t afford any more slip-ups moving forward as the head coach Age Hareide aims for at least two top-two finish at the end of the campaign.

Rosenborg will have a nice chance to back up the last round’s win on Sunday as they take on struggling bottom-half Tromso.

Tromso are the only team in the division without a win on the home patch this term. They have taken just two points from five home outings since the start of the season, conceding as many as ten goals along the way.

The hosts will go into this winless in five successive Eliteserien games. They have scored just one goal in the last four outings in the process.

Tromso vs Rosenborg Prediction

Tromso have not been pulling up any trees lately and we see this game as a perfect opportunity for Rosenborg to build on the last weekend’s win over Kristiansund and start a streak. We are kind of surprised with the sky-high 2.40 odds offered for the away win pick and we can say it is by far the best betting option of the entire weekend.

Since Tromso scored just one goal in the last four league outings, we will also back the visitors to keep a clean sheet at the 3.50 odds.
