Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Haugesund take on Viking at Haugesund Stadion on Matchday 28. The hosts did well to hold Bodo to a 2-2 draw at the weekend, with the team coming from two goals behind to share the spoils with the second-placed team. Jostein Grindhaug’s troops aim to finish the season in the top half of the standings, and given their attacking potential; we predict that the hosts are going to find the net in Saturday’s football match.
Viking, on the other hand, recorded a routine 3-0 win over Lillestrom in their last league fixture, with the team keeping their Europa League hopes alive. Seeing that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Haugesund Stadion clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the Eliterserien, Haugesund recorded a 2-1 win over Viking.
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.
