- Sarpsborg – Rosenborg 1-3 (0-2)
Rosenborg’s good form continues. Trøndelag was in complete control from start to finish when Sarpsborg was hit.
At the same time that Rosenborg scored a solid win, he gave Molde points against weak Valringa in the gold match. Bodø/Glimt also had trouble for a long time against the Viking, but turned to victory at the end of the match.
The win means Rosenborg has won six of his last seven matches. That means Trøndelag is now fourth in Eliteserien, four points behind Glimt, who tops the table.

Per Ciljan Skjelbred (34) struggled after ‘returning’ to Rosenborg. Injuries and a mixed performance have meant that the 34-year-old’s comeback has not been what many had imagined.
But against Sarpsborg, Skelbrid and Rosenborg shone a lot.
Skjelbred maintained Pearl’s lead when he doubled Trøndelag’s lead midway through the first half.

The goal was also Skilbride’s first goal after returning to Rosenborg last summer, and it came in the 34-year-old’s first game since picking up an injury in the match against Lilleström on June 25.
The Swede was still the best player in the match.
Stefano Vecchia scored the two goals against Sarpsborg. The first goal was a real gem, while the second was frozen in the net after a beautiful counterattack.
“I am very happy with the result, but the most important thing is that we won the match and got three points,” Vecchia told Discovery after the match.
Ole Jürgen Halvorsen cut back for the hosts midway through the second half, but that didn’t help much. Rosenborg eventually won the match 3-1.
