Rosenborg vs Valerenga (By: Dajkula)
Rosenborg will host Valerenga in the round 11 of the Eliteserien. Things haven`t really started well for Rosenborg this season. After winning the league for a number of seasons, they are not showing the same resolve. They did change the coach and that may be the reason for the bad performances. Horneland came from Haugesund and that was an interesting choice. Maybe he just needed time to get familiar with the players. Rosenborg has been playing well lately and they won the last 3 matches. The win over the second Brann was especially important and should give them confidence. The team hasn`t changed much in the of the season so I believe this is only in their heads. Rosenborg is 11`th with 12 points so far.
Rosenborg has 3-3-4 altogether and 2-2-1 at home. They scored just 8 goals o far which is the biggest concern. There are some high-quality players there but they are not producing.
At least, they meet a familiar opponent. Valerenga is the team that suits Rosenborg well.
Valerenga is ranked 5`th with 5-2-3 and 17 points. They produced the best results at home though they did lose to the struggling Lillestrom with 0:3 in the last match. Away from home, Lillestrom is never very confident. In fact, they struggle all the time on their travels. Now, they have 1-2-2 and 8:9 gd. They only beat Ranheim with 5:1 and that was their only and the biggest win. Kristiansund won with 2:0 and Molde with 4:1.
As I said, Rosenborg has good times with Valerenga and it just may be the opponent they need. Rosenborg won 13 of the last 14 league matches against Valerenga here. If Rosenborg fails, it will probably be the end for coach Horneland.
Rosenborg will miss Serbecic (def.0-0) while doubtful are Konradsen (mid.6-0) and De Lanlay (att.9-1).
Valerenga has bigger issues and is without Michael (att.0-0), Azemi (att.9-0), Vega (att.8-2) while doubtful are Adekugbe (def.5-0), Shala (mid.9-3), Nation (def.10-0), Bjordal (def.10-0).
With potentially big missings for Valerenga and a somewhat awakened Rosenborg, I will go with the home side today.
