Rosenborg’s recent form can be summarised as a roller-coaster ride. Their last match, a 2-2 draw against Stabæk, saw them dominating the game with a remarkable 74% possession. Although they managed to put 13 shots on goal with 5 on target, they still fell short in achieving the desired result. Rosenborg’s matches have been high-scoring affairs recently, with an average of 3.67 goals per game over their past six encounters. Despite their inconsistency, they have managed to score 14 goals in 11 matches this season, maintaining an average of 1.3 goals per game.

In terms of attacking prowess, Rosenborg have been demonstrating a strong presence, producing an average of 2.5 big chances per game and 10.3 total shots. However, their biggest struggle seems to be their defensive line, which has conceded 15 goals this season, averaging 1.4 goals per match. Despite a 51% ball possession, Rosenborg need to focus on enhancing their defensive game to hold off Sarpsborg’s attacks.

Sarpsborg 08: Rising Challengers

On the other hand, Sarpsborg, after a loss against Viking FK, are eager to turn the tides in their favour. They demonstrated impressive game control in their previous match, with a 58% possession and 14 shots on goal. With an average of 1.2 goals per match, Sarpsborg have shown resilience and grit, scoring 12 goals in 10 matches this season.

Sarpsborg’s attacking strength lies in their shot frequency, averaging 15.1 total shots per game with 5.1 on target. They’ve also shown promise with an average of 1.7 big chances per game. They’ve made a mark defensively as well, conceding only 11 goals in 10 matches, averaging 1.1 per game, demonstrating a more robust defence compared to Rosenborg.

Looking Through the Prism of Statistics

Despite a difference in their defensive strengths, both teams have shown offensive consistency. Rosenborg’s 1.3 goals per game go head-to-head with Sarpsborg’s 1.2, indicating a likely high-scoring encounter. A closer look at their recent clashes reveals an average of 3.5 goals per game, making the possibility of a goal-laden match even more promising.

However, an often overlooked aspect that might play a pivotal role in this match is the frequency of corners. Sarpsborg have shown an aggressive attacking style, leading to an average of 6 corners per game. Meanwhile, Rosenborg, with their average of 4.1 corners, haven’t been far behind. Considering both teams’ corner statistics, predicting Over 12.5 Corners seems plausible for this encounter, which is likely to be entertaining and open from the start to the end.

Upsetting the Odds

Considering Sarpsborg’s recent away record, they stand a solid chance of pulling off an upset. With a solid defensive line that’s better than Rosenborg’s and an aggressive attacking strategy, Sarpsborg are well-positioned to exploit Rosenborg’s defensive frailties and get away with a narrow win. For this reason, backing a 2-1 in the correct score market looks good value.
