Norway – Tippeligaen
Haugesund vs Rosenborg
Both teams need points. Haugesund want to stay in Tippeligaen, while the visitors have small chances to win the title, but their main goal is to be in the top 3 and qualify in Europa League next season.
Home team lost 5 matches in a row in all competitions.
Haugesund misses out Michael Haukås (0/0 m), Eirik Mæland (4/0 m), Emmanuel Ekpo (1/0 m), Pontus Engblom (7/1 f) and Tor Arne Andreassen (22/1 m), while top scorer Christian Gytkjær (20/12 f) is doubtful.
Rosenborg without few very important players.
The first goalkeeper Alexander Lund Hansen (17/0 gk), two midfielders Mike Jensen (23/4 m) and Jonas Svensson (17/2 m) and their top scorer Alexander Søderlund (20/14 f) are all out, while defender Stefan Strandberg (16/1 d) is doubtful.
The visitors won four of their last 5 matches, but their away performance is far from good – only one win in the last 5 away matches (1-1-3) in all competitions.
Open match – no bet for me.
