Rosenborg vs Sarpsborg prediction
Rosenborg (16) vs Sarpsborg 08 (9)
Last year champions Rosenborg are placed in the bottom (!) of the league after 5 matches (0-2-3) and they are coming from getting crushed 3-0 vs rivals Molde (1). They grabbed the first win of the season in the Cup midweek, against a lower league team. The pressure on their new manager is so big and at some point they will need to grab a win, the problem is that they are facing this very solid Sarpsborg team tonight.
Sarpsborg are the only undefeated team so far (1-4-0) and they are coming from another draw 1-1 at home vs new promoted team Mjondalen (7). I watched the match and they could easily have scored 3-4 goals, so if this team manage to be more clinical I think they will be grabbing several victories in the upcoming weeks. Sarpsborg didn’t have any problems in winning in the Cup midweek, against a lower league team.
* 9 of last 12 league meetings ended with both teams scoring
* Rosenborg won this match by 3-1 last season
This one will be pretty interesting because of the situation for the champions. They are desperate and its without any doubt crazy that they are placed in the bottom of the league, when seeing the players they have. Sarpsborg should enjoy this and they havent had a better chance when travelling to Rosenborg ever I guess. I think this match will give us goals, with a desperate Rosenborg and the guests that can enjoy the counters as they come. Over 3 goals is the pick.
