Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Brann will be aiming to bounce back from a heavy 6-0 loss to Stromsgodset when they take on Viking on the last day of the season. The two teams failed to secure a top-three finish, but Viking could still book their place in the Europa League as they take on Haugesund in the Norwegian Cup final on December 8, 2019. Seeing that head coach Bjarne Berntsen is likely to rest key players for the NM Cupen final, we are tempted to put our money on Brann.
As previously mentioned, Lars Arne Nilsen’s troops are eager to make amends for the embarrassing defeat to Stromsgodset, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. You should bear in mind that Brann defeated third-placed Odd 1-0 in their last home game in the national championship, with Daouda Bamba scoring the only goal of the match.
Highlighted Team (Viking):
Founded back in 1899, Viking are both one of the oldest and the most successful Norwegian teams. The dark blues won their eight domestic trophy in 1991, but they have not been as successful in the 21st century.
Viking won the Norwegian Cup on five occasions (1953, 1959, 1979, 1989, 2001) and knocking Chelsea out of the UEFA Cup during the 2002/2003 season is considered the team’s best achievement in European competitions.
