Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Rosenborg will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Eliteserien when they take on Mjondalen at their Lerkendal Stadion on Matchday 29. The Troillongan aim to retain their spot in top four, and we are positive that they will go for a win in the midweek clash. Since Rosenborg were not in action at the weekend, tired legs are unlikely to prove to be a problem for the home team.
Mjondalen, on the other hand, picked up vital three points from the relegation six-pointer against Start, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Wednesday’s clash. Rosenborg do not suit Mjondalen, and it has to be noted that the Troillongan emerged triumphant in each of the previous four meetings between the two clubs in the Eliteserien. Dino Islamovic, who has netted ten goals so far this season, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Markus Henriksen):
Markus Henriksen is a Norwegian footballer who was born in Trondheim on 25 July, 1992. As expected, he played for his hometown club Rosenborg during his youth career and he made no less than 78 league appearances for the Troillongan at senior level. He scored 11 league goals for the club from 2009 to 2012 and he won two domestic trophies with the Norwegian outfit (2009, 2010).
On 31 August, 2012 he signed a five-year deal with AZ Alkmaar for a fee of €2 million. Henriksen made his AZ debut on 16 September, 2012 in a 4-0 win over Roda and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. The attacking midfielder has nine caps for Norway U21 team and he made his debut for the first team in a 2-1 loss to Croatia on 12 October, 2010.
On 31 August, 2016 he signed a loan deal with Hull City, which should be made permanent in 2017. You should have in mind that Henriksen is capable of playing as both central midfielder and a defensive midfielder as well.
