Lillestrøm Vs Rosenborg: Match Preview, Team News And Prediction
Lillestrøm hosts Rosenborg at the Arasen Stadion in a fixture from the 10th round of the Norwegian Eliteserien. This is a perfect moment to share our preview for the game. Let’s go with our free soccer predictions daily.
Lillestrøm is the leader in the Eliteserien after all the games played so far. They are at the top of the table with 24 points. This puts them two points ahead of the second-placed team Molde and three points ahead of the third-placed team Viking. We should also note that Lillestrøm is the only unbeaten team in Norway’s elite division so far – they have a record of 7 wins and 2 draws.
The club’s fans are dreaming of winning the first title since 1989. It’s been a while since the Canaries were champions of Norway. It’s too soon to talk about it, but the hopes are certainly there. So far, the team is doing really well!
The young Nigerian striker Akor Adams has been doing a fine job since joining the club after the end of the previous season. Adams joined Lillestrøm after scoring 10 league goals for Sogndal in the 2021 campaign. Now he’s making some waves again – Akor Adams already found the net four times for his new club.
In their last game, Lillestrøm lost two points when they paid a visit to Tromso. Mathew and Dragsnes put the Canaries ahead, but Lillestrøm had the bad luck to concede an equalizing goal in the 92nd minute. The head coach Geir Bakke was furious with the way his players lost focus at the end of the game.
Bakkes used a classic 3-5-2 formation in the game against Tromso. Vetle Dragsnes and Eskil Edh had to operate on the wings while Knudsen, Mathew, and Holst started in midfield. Fridjonsson and Ibrahimaj formed a duo in the attack.
Akor Adams started from the bench against Tromso, but he could be back in the line-up on Sunday. Kasper Kairnen is another player who could find himself in the starting eleven. The 23-years old Finnish midfielder is an option for the head coach Bakke to reinforce the middle of the pitch.
Right now, Geir Bakke and his players refuse to talk about finishing first in the league. Everyone at the club realizes it’s too soon to think about the gold medals. But Lillestrøm definitely has a chance if they keep this level of performance.
Rosenborg is approaching the 10th round from 6th place in the table. They are 10 points behind the leader despite losing just once this season – against Stromgodset. The problem is they have won just three of their matches so far.
Before the break, Rosenborg made their best performance for the season so far. The former champions visited Valerenga and crushed their opponent 4-0 at the Utility Arena.
Ole Sæter was the man of the match for the visitors as he scored twice for the win. Meanwhile, Stefano Vecchia and Adrian Pereira also contributed to the three points with goals.
After such a performance, we don’t expect that Rosenborg’s manager Kjetil Rekdal will make many changes. One of his key players remains his number 10 Carlo Holse, who plays as a playmaker just behind the strikers. His creativity is vital for Rosenborg’s success on the pitch. He’s a crucial player.
Two of Norway’s best sides are going head to head. That’s our preview for the Eliteserien clash between Lillestrøm and Rosenborg. The hosts are currently leading the standings and will try to remain on top.
Meanwhile, Rosenborg is behind, but they are always a formidable opponent to play against. It should be a pretty good game to watch on Sunday. Keep following us for more free soccer predictions daily
