Rosenborg preview: Struggling to play according to their reputation

While Rosenborg are by far the most-decorated team in Norway with 26 top-flight titles, they were the champions for the last time in 2018. So, things haven't been going great for them for a while and that trend continues this season since Rosenborg are currently only 10th in the Eliteserien standings with 14 points from 11 matches.

Also, Ole Saeter, Tomas Nemcik, and Jonathan Augustinsson are on Rosenborg's injury list at the moment.

Predicted lineup: Tangvik (GK), Reitan, Ceide, Jenssen, Pereira, Tagseth, Selnaes, Vaanen, Broholm, Reitan-Sunde & Holm

Tripic to score from a penatly?

Two of the four goals that Tripic has scored in the Eliteserien so far have been scored from penalties. Given a chance, he might do the same against Rosenborg too.
