Rosenborg - Brann 1-3
The first Royal League match in group 1 was played today. Rosenborg outplayed Brann the first 10 minutes and got an early lead. Brann finally began playing football and the first half ended 1-2 after three fairly easy goals and a red card to the infamous cheat Riseth.
In the second half, Rosenborg started off well again, created a few chances, but nothing came of it. Brann just controlled the match against a reduced Rosenborg. The victory should have been greater, but Brann was very inefficient.
1-0 Storflor (4mins) A good pass back from Essediri finds Storflor all alone in the box. Nice Rosenborg move, but lousy defense by Brann.
1-1 Bjørnson (11mins) The former striker gets clear in the box and easily heads in the cornerkick.
1-2 Huseklepp (33mins) Second-goalie Lund Hansen was expecting someone to head the ball away, instead the ball went between his legs and into the goal.
1-3 Ystaas (83mins) A messed up freekick finds Ystaas on the 5m line who scores easily.
Bakke, Vaagan Moen (Brann)
Riseth (rbk) was sent off after receiving two yellow cards, for mouthing off and shoving appearantly. The second card wasn't the most obvious one, but I'm sure he deserved it. He usually gets away with way too much of his tricks.
