Rosenborg have struggled for wins this season and will be hoping for a much needed three points against a Valerenga outfit who can go above their visitors if they manage to take the spoils.

Valerenga – Can Valerenga extend what is a remarkable unbeaten record at home?

A seventh place finish for Valerenga last season means there is no European football for the club this season. As disappointing as that is, it means they can concentrate solely on their domestic commitments. Nine games into the campaign and they would have hoped to be in a better position than they currently sit. In 10th at the moment, Valerenga have 10 points courtesy of three wins and a draw. They come into this match on the back of four games without a win including three losses, so they know how important it is to get back to winning ways.

Dag Eliev Fagermo has been in charge since January 2020 following a 12 year spell at Odd, so he knows the league exceptionally well and what is required to be successful.

1-1 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 24 May)
For Valerenga to have a productive season then it appears their home form is going be instrumental once again. All of their points this season have come at home and they have extended their impressive unbeaten home record to 16 matches and with just one defeat in 33 league home games. It’s a record to be proud of but considering their lowly position in last year’s league, also indicates their failings on the road.
You have to go all the way back to October 2019 for the last time Valerenga failed to score in a home game. That was against Stabaek in a 2-0 defeat.

Rosenborg Preview – Will Rosenborg register a first away victory of the season?

Rosenborg remain the most successful team in Norway but they have not been able to reach the heights or success they have become accustomed to down the years, in recent times. Their last title success was back in 2018, since then they have finished third, fourth and fifth, so getting progressively worse year on year. This season – so far – is following that trend as they come into this game in seventh spot with 11 points from eight matches.

The biggest issue thus far has been their inability to turn draws into wins. Rosenborg have shared the points in five of their eight games with just two victories. On a more positive note, it means they have lost just once which was away to Stromsgodset at the start of the month.

It means the Trondheim club are still looking for their first away win of the season having drawn with Bodo, Sarpsborg and HamKam. Those games have seen both teams scoring in each of them.

It will be an emotional return to Valerenga for Rosenborg boss Kjetil Rekdal who represented Saturday’s opponents as both a player and head coach. He won the league as manager in 2005 and has had a further spell.

Valerenga vs Rosenborg Betting Advice

Valerenga can go above their opponents with a win in this game and keep on the tails of the teams at the top of the table. That is also Rosenborg’s aim who – although 12 points off leaders Liilestrom, will feel they still have a chance having a played a game less and if they can turn some of these draws into wins.

There has been little to separate the two in recent meetings, with four of the last six ending in stalemates and each team taking the honours in the remaining two games.


Key Facts –  Valerenga vs Rosenborg Betting Tip

  • Valerenga are unbeaten in 16 home games in the league, with their last defeat being on the 15th May 2021
  • Rosenborg have drawn five of their eight games to begin this campaign
  • Four of the last six meetings between these teams have ended in draws with one win apiece


With such a strong home record and Rosenborg being unable to win on their travels, it looks unlikely that Valerenga will get beat here. However, the visitors don’t lose many either and with their tendency to draw games along with the recent record between the two, a share of the points looks the most likely outcome here.
