Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Following goalless draws with both Sarpsborg and Stabaek, Haugesund will be looking to record their first win of the season when they face Viking at their Haugesund Stadion. Jostein Grindhaug’s troops failed to turn their dominance into victory against Stabaek, but they are surely capable of matching Viking at home ground. Defender Joakim Nilsen remains on the sidelines with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Viking, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Lillestrom. The Dark Blues proved their worth in Monday’s clash, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Haugesund. Viking coaching duo Aarsheim – Jensen should have a full squad to choose from. In their last encounter in the Norwegian top flight Haugesund defeated Viking thanks to Ibrahima Wadji’s goal.
