Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Lillestrom play host to Viking at their Arasen Stadion in the Eliteserien round 5. The Canaries kicked off the new season with a 3-1 loss at Stromsgodset, and, no doubt, they are determined to give fans something to cheer about. Despite failing to find the net in the season opener, Thomas Olsen should continue to lead the line for the hosts. Viking, on the other hand, head into Monday’s clash following back-to-back defeats to Rosenborg and Tromso.
Considering that the Dark Blues have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, we are tempted to put our money on Lillestrom. Both Auklend and Haugen are pushing for a start, with Fridjonsson and Bjorshol likely to drop to Viking’s bench. In their last encounter in the Norwegian top flight Viking outplayed Lillestrom 3-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
