Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Sunday’s football game at Consto Arena pits together Mjondalen and Rosenborg, the two clubs with entirely different ambitions in the second half of the season. Following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Kristiansund and Molde, Mjondalen shared the spoils with Haugesund in their last league match, but that did not help them move away from the danger zone in the Eliteserien standings.
The relegation-threatened team face an uphill task against Rosenborg, who head into the game following the Europa League clash against LASK. Tired legs could prove to be a big problem for the visitors in the Consto Arena showdown, but seeing that the Troillongan have strength in depth, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. In previous three meetings between the two teams in all competitions Rosenborg emerged triumphant and we do not believe that Mjondalen are capable of putting an end to the negative trend.
Highlighted Team (Rosenborg):
Rosenberg are undisputedly the most famous Norwegian club. The Troillongan have participated in the Champions League group stages on several occasions and they are the dominant force in the Norwegian Premier League. Rosenborg won their 24th (record) domestic title in 2016, with the team finishing the season 15 points clear of second-placed Brann.
The Norwegian side are well known for their black and white kits and Lerkendal Stadion is the club’s home ground. The capacity of the venue is 21.405 and the stadium was opened back in 1947. John Carew is the most notable footballer who played for Rosenborg in the past and it has to be noted that the powerful centre-forward scored 18 goals in 18 appearances in the league for the Troillongan.
Nowadays Nicklas Bendtner wears Rosenborg shirt, but he did not help the Norwegian champions make it to the Champions League group stages. Rosenborg eliminated Dundalk in the second qualifying round, but Scottish side Celtic proved to be a big catch for Kare Hedley Ingebrigtsen’s troops in round 3.
