Key Stats

  • Three of the last four league meetings between Brann and Rosenborg have witnessed both teams scoring, while three of the hosts' and three of the visitors' last six outings in all competitions have also produced goals at both ends of the pitch.
  • Brann are unbeaten in their last four competitive and non-competitive encounters with Rodenborg, picking up three wins during that period, and have won three of their opening five league games this season, but Rosenborg have scored in each of their last five fixtures so a 2-1 scoreline in favour of the hosts seems favourable.
  • Aune Heggebø has started the season in good form for Brann, scoring three goals in five substitute appearances and with Bard Finne suspended, we're backing the 22-year-old to start and score this weekend.

Player to watch – Aune Heggebø

Aune Heggebø hasn't started in the league for Brann so far this season but following the sending off of the club's main striker Bard Finne last weekend, the young forward should get his chance to show what he can do from the starting lineup having already impressed from the bench.

Heggebø top scores for Brann with three goals in his five substitute appearances this season and will believe that he has earned his chance to start for the Norwegian club this weekend.

The young Brann forward has started the season positively

We're backing Heggebø to score against Rosenborg on Saturday and if he does, we think that the manager will have to consider starting the young forward in more games going forward as he certainly has an eye for goal.
