Rosenborg form and stats

Only two Eliteserien home games for Rosenborg so far, yet both highs and lows with 1 win, 1 draw and 0 defeat.

Vecchia was the last player to score a league goal for Rosenborg and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Rosenborg haven't scored in 206 minutes.

In their previous game, the manager Rekdal led his Rosenborg to a defeat away at Strømsgodset. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Lerkendal Stadion. Rosenborg lost the game against Strømsgodset in the first half with a 0-3 deficit and could never come back from that. Jensen, who plays in attack, was the champion player for the team in that fixture, scoring a rating of 7.13 (out of 10). Jensen hit two key passes.

Before that, Rosenborg played out a draw 1-1 when visiting Sarpsborg 08.

There will be little rest for Rosenborg after this match as they are travelling to Verdal for a NM Cup game in only three days.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Rosenborg at home in the league. 1 on target and 0 scored by the opposition; from 2 matches.
