Rosenborg will welcome Sarpsborg 08 to Lerkendal Stadion for a matchday 8 fixture in Norway Eliteserien. The last meeting on 25th October 2020 ended in a Rosenborg 2-1 win. Both sides have met eighteen times in the most recent seasons. Rosenborg has won 13 matches, and Sarpsborg 08 triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 3.50 goals, while both teams score 67% of the time.
Rosenborg's latest fixture against Strømsgodset ended in an away 2-1 loss. I expected more from Troillan. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Rosenborg set the tone early and scored in the 2nd minute.
Sarpsborg 08's previous game in the competition versus Molde ended in an away 4-1 loss. 08 had plenty of time to pass around and make quality forward runs. However, the final result was not what they wish for before the game started. Sarpsborg 08 was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 84th minute.
Since the start of the season, Rosenborg is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 7 games on home soil. Troillongan's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 43% of home games.
Sarpsborg 08 has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. Sarpsborg 08 don't feel the pressure of playing away. So far, they earn an average of 1.00 points per game, both home and away. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Sarpsborg 08 kept a clean sheet in just 29% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Troillan is currently unbeaten at home in two games. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.
Blåhvitt failed to win in three consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Sunday and win against Troillan. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost three consecutive games on the road.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Rosenborg wins on average 1.86 points per home game, compared to 1.00 points per away game for Sarpsborg 08. My prediction is Rosenborg to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 4.13 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 67% of Rosenborg's home and Sarpsborg 08's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Rosenborg has scored in 71% of home games. Sarpsborg 08 is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
