Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Viking will be looking to move a little closer to the Europa League berth in the Eliteserien standings with a win over Kristiansund at Kristiansund Stadion. Christian Michelsen’s troops are four points behind top three ahead of Matchday 26, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for them. The visitors have been in a fine form of late and seeing that Kristiansund struggle at the back, we are tempted to put our money on the away team.
The hosts, on the other hand, have slim chances of booking their place in European competitions, meaning that the lack of confidence is likely to prove to be the team’s key problem in Sunday’s clash against Viking. You should bear in mind that Christian Michelsen’s troops are after their fifth consecutive win over Kristiansund in the Norwegian top flight.
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.
