Is it too late to vote? I'll go with a 5-1 home win for you lot in the Balkans, but I am quite confident we'll gain revenge in Oslo: 2-0!
Rosenborg quite easily won the league last season (played by the calendar year as I am sure most people will know), and look set to follow that title with another one, as they are well clear having just gone into the Euro '16 break (though we are obviously not there, our league still takes a break in order not to suffer heavy attendance losses). Molde were comfortably beaten last weekend (3-1 at home, Rosenborg's first league win over Molde in, what, seven attempts), and Eidur Gudjohnsen's current club needs to invest during the summer break in order to put up a title fight. Otherwise it could be up to Odd (from the town of Skien. 'Odd' doesn't have the same peculiar meaning in Norwegian as it does in English, by the way) to try and prevent the Trondheim side to run away with a second successive league championship. However, Rosenborg are looking to qualify for this season's Champions League, which could distract their league form. They do not have a lot of strength in depth squad-wise, so they could suffer if their fixture list becomes congested. They are also through to the quarter final stage of the Norwegian FA Cup.
Main players at Lerkendal this season? Right back Jonas Svensson, who has recently been called up to the national team, where he did well in matches against Iceland and Belgium, young Australian left back Alex Gersbach, Danish captain and midfielder Mike Jensen, right winger Pĺl André Helland (though he seems to spend an equal amount of time in the treatment room) and, when he's back from injury, left winger Yann Erik De Lanlay, who was signed from Viking Stavanger last season and who's taken some time to get going in the black and white of Rosenborg, but who did really well until getting injured a couple of matches before the summer break. The 3-1 win v Molde also saw two much-awaited goals from Danish striker Christian Gytkjćr, who was signed from Haugesund during the close season, and who had not impressed much in his first 10 outings or so. He's replaced Alexander Sřderlund, last season's Tippeligaen leading scorer (22 goals), who signed for St. Étienne in the French top flight, the club for which also young playmaker Ole Selnćs signed for after last term. He's been more or less directly replaced by Anders Konradsen, who was at the club last season as well, but who only came into Selnćs' deep midfield role at the start of this season, and who's given a very good account of himself.
