Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Rosenborg will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Stromsgodset when they take on Sarpsborg at Lerkendal Stadion on Matchday 8. The Troillongan aim to stay in the title race, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Head coach Age Hareide is likely to stick to the 4-3-3 formation, with new signing Islamovic up front as a lone forward. You should bear in mind that Rosenborg are eyeing their fourth home win of the season.
Sarpsborg, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Molde. Considering that Rosenborg do not suit Sarpsborg, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Experienced attacker Kristian Opseth, who has recently overcome his injury, is pushing for a start for the visiting team.
