Read full preview at: http://www.rainbow-bet.com


Opening round in the Norwegian Tippeligaen. Last years league champions and Norwegian Cup champions Rosenborg visits Odd at Skagerak Arena. The away side have a good history against today's opponents, and both sides have made a lot of transfers both in and out.


The home side Odd ended up on a 4th place in the league last year, the home stats was 7-6-2. A defensive side who are difficult to break down, especially at home. They've played 7 friendlies, this have resulted in 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. The defeats came against Litex Lovech, Elfsborg and Rosenborg.


Odd's powerful and experienced top scorer Frode Johnsen has retired, and it's now up to Olivier Occean to make the goals. Made a good signing in Fredrik Semb Berg, who is a strong and promising centre back. Odd har playing in a 4-3-3 formation with a tight defense, they're good at counter attacks and good at set pieces. Let's take a look at Odd's transfers ahead of the season:


Players in:


Erik Eikeng (junior department)


Joakim Våge Nilsen (Haugesund) defender


Sigurd Haugen (Sandnes Ulf)


Henrik Kjelsrud Johansen (back from loan Fredrikstad) striker


Fredrik Semb Berge (Brøndby) defender


John Kitolano (junior department) midfield


Players out:


Emil Jonassen (Bodø/Glimt) defender


Håvard Storbæk (Sandefjord) defender


Jarkko Hurme (Seinäjoen) defender


Ulrik Flo (Silkeborg) striker


Pape Pate Diouf (back to Molde after loan) striker

Jonathan Lindseth (Mjøndalen) defender


Expected lineup Odd:




Våge Nilsen – Hagen – Semb Berge – Ruud


Nordkvelle – Samuelsen – Oldrup Jensen


Bentley – Occean - Zekhnini


The away side won the league and cup last year, and manager Kåre Ingebrigtsen is eager to continuing, and perhaps sucseed in the European Cup as well. Last year Rosenborg's away stats showed strong 10-2-3. Has played 7 friendly matches ahead of this season, 4 wins, 2 draws and only 1 defeat.


Sold last years top scorer in the league Alexander Søderlund to St. Etienne, but the replacement is a good one, Danish Christian Gytkjær is bought from Haugesund. A lot of people believe he'll fight for the goal scorer title in the league this season. Talented Elba Rashani is brought in on loan from Brøndby, and it will be exciting to see how the season goes for the youngster. Rosenborg's transfers:


Players in:


Christian Gytkjær (Haugesund) striker


Elba Rashani (loan from Brøndby) striker


Alex Gersbach (FC Sydney) defender


Pavel Londak (Bodø/Glimt) goalkeeper


Players out:


Alexander Søderlund (St Etienne) striker


Alexander Sørloth (Groningen) striker


Morten Gamst Pedersen (Tromsø) midfield


Ole Selnæs (St Etienne) midfield


Tobias Mikkelsen (Nordsjælland) midfield


Riku Riski (loan to Dundee United) striker


Alexander Lund Hansen (goalkeeper), Mikael Dorsin (defender), John Hou Søther (midfield) and Andreas Helmersen (defender) are out injured for Rosenborg.


Expected lineup Rosenborg:




Skjelvik – Reginiussen – Eyjolfsson – Svensson


Midtsjø – Konradsen – Jensen


de Lanlay – Gytkjær - Helland


Surprises are made when leagues are starting up, but we'll think Rosenborg takes this one. They have a big squad and are in their own class when it comes to quality. Rosenborg and Molde are the big favurites for the title this year, and we think the Trondheim-team is in for a good start. On the previous 9 meetings between the clubs Rosenborg won 8 and Odd's only won 1 match. We bet on a away win for Rosenborg, who will be fighting for this years title with Molde.
