Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
All eyes will be on Lerkendal Stadion when Rosenborg and Viking face each other in the Eliteserien derby. Rosenborg aim to make amends for an unexpected loss to Haugesund, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Bjarne Bertsen’s troops. The Troillongan did well to beat Stromsgodset and Sandefjord in the previous two home games, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Viking.
The likes of Hedenstad, Hansen, Helmersen, and Sandberg are all likely to miss the game with injury. The visitors, on the other hand, rolled over Sarpsborg 3-0 at the weekend, with the team climbing to tenth position in the standings. Away win, though, should not be considered this time out as Viking have been struggling on the travels at the start of the season. Defender Sondre Bjorshol is the only absentee in the away team ahead of the trip to Trondheim.
