Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Rosenborg will look to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Lillestrom when they host Kristiansund to their Lerkendal Stadion on Matchday 21. The Troillongan are already 13 points behind the league leaders in the table, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for Kjetil Rekdal’s troops. Both Skjelbred and Saeter should drop to the bench, with Hoff and Skarsem pushing for a start. Midfielder Tobias Borkeeiet remains on the sidelines with a thigh injury.
Kristiansund, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only one point in their pocket, meaning that Rosenborg will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Goalkeeper Anders Kristiansen remains in the recovery room with a finger problem, but he should be the only absentee in the away side. In their last meeting in Trondheim Rosenborg defeated Kristiansund 1-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
