Norway Eliteserien – Rosenborg v Sogndal Preview (25/6/17)


Match Preview

Rosenborg are clearly out of form, only winning 1 of their last 6 games which is a shocking return for a team of their expectations. Something isn’t right and they are especially struggling to create chances and score goals. It’s obvious how Sogndal will lineup today, they will try and park about ten double decker buses. It will be up to Rosenborg to break them down, which they may well do, but I couldn’t say so with too much confidence. I would be surprised if Sogndal created many chances here and the only way they can score is surely from a set piece. I can’t be taking RBK -1.75 and the best value bet looks to be under 3 goals. However, if Sogndal did implode it could get ugly because they are a very limited side who are highly unlikely to trouble the scorers today, they have no offensive threat. I’m happy to leave this one alone.

Prediction: 2-0

Recommended bet: None
