Sarpsborg preview: Still struggling in the relegation zone

While Sarpsborg have gotten a win over Haugesund in the last round of Eliteserien, they are still in the relegation zone with 13 points from the same number of matches. The team have lost four of their last six games in the league too, so their form is still far from what they need, but on the bright side, they are just one point behind the first team in the safe zone.

Meanwhile, Niklas Sandberg is currently the only player on Sarpsborg's injury list.

Predicted lineup: Ilic (GK), Christiansen, Uchenna, Casas, Hiim, Johansen, Andersen, Wichne, Sher, Orjasaeter & Berget

Rosenborg preview: Can they win twice in a row?

With 17 points from 13 games in the league so far, this has been a disappointing season for the biggest team in Norway, historically. However, Rosenborg have been struggling for a while now to stay relevant and it seems that this season they'll once again be far from the top of the Eliteserien standings.

When it comes to team news, Jonathan Augustinsson remains on the sidelines to deal with a thigh injury.

Predicted lineup: Tangvik (GK), Cornic, Henriksen, Jenssen, Reitan, Tagseth, Broholm, Vaananen, Nypan, Reitan-Sunde & Saeter

Player to watch: Ole Christian Saeter

The experienced striker is having a good season with six goals in the Eliteserien so far, which is enough to make him one of the candidates to be the top scorer this season in the Norwegian top flight.

Will Saeter score a penalty again?

Two of the six goals that Saeter has in the Eliteserien so far have come from penalties and if Sarpsborg give him a chance in this duel, he's likely to take it.
