Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Tuesday’s football game at Lerkendal Stadion pits together Rosenborg and Lillestrom, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the second half of the season. Rosenborg are eyeing a place in European competitions, whilst Lillestrom aim to move away from the danger zone in the Eliteserien standings. The hosts will be with one eye on the Europa League clash against LASK, but seeing that Lillestrom are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Eirik Horneland’s men.
The Canaries have already suffered five defeats on the road in the 2019 season and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Rosenborg’s party at Lerkendal Stadion. Experienced attacker Nicklas Bendtner joined FC Copenhagen in the summer transfer window, but Alexander Soderlund is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line.
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.
