Norway Eliteserien – Rosenborg v Stabaek Preview (30/8/20)

Match Preview

Rosenborg aren’t actually in bad form and have won 7 of their last 10 games. This isn’t a surprise because on paper they have one of the best teams in the league. Goalscoring has improved recently with the likes of Islamovic looking much more dangerous. Kristoffer Zachariassen from midfield has been their best player and a fantastic signing from Sarpsborg. RBK have a few players still on the treatment table like goalkeeper Andre Hansen. The wing duo of Helland and Adegbenro are ruled out and of course they’ve sold players such as Melling, Tronsdsen, Lundemo etc. 

Stabaek travel here winless in six games and they are starting to slide down the table. Their defence has become shaky and looked vulnerable in recent weeks probably, something that will probably be their downfall here. Rosenborg can also be ‘got at’ defensively and they aren’t the same solid unit we expect of them. I was also thinking of backing Rosenborg on a -1 handicap but I think the safer bet is over 3 goals. Stabaek could nick a goal themselves so something like 3-1 or even 4-1 maybe on the cards.

Prediction: 3-1

Recommended bet: Over 3 goals @1.86
