Soccer: Rosenborg wins 1-0 over Stabæk




Per Ciljan Skjelbred scored early in the first half for Rosenborg to beat Stabæk 1-0 and give the Trondheim side a 10-point lead in the Norwegian league on June 24.

Skjelbred, left unmarked in the box, beat Norway goalkeeper Jon Knudsen in the 16th minute. Alexander Tettey set up Skjelbred for his first goal of the season.

Rosenborg, Scandinavia’s most successful Champions League entry ever, has 35 points after 15 rounds and is the only unbeaten team.

Odd Grenland, Vålerenga and Molde are next in the standings with 25 each. Molde can move to second place on Thursday with an away win over Lillestrøm.
