Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Buoyed by a terrific 3-0 win at Valerenga, Lillestrom will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Viking on Matchday 11. Lillestrom have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, but, no doubt, the triumph over Valerenga gave them a confidence boost. The Fugla are eyeing their third home win of the season and seeing that Viking experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Molde, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Bjarne Berntsen’s troops have been struggling on the travels in the 2019 season, which is probably the main reason why we predict the visitors will return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind that Lillestrom recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Viking in their last meeting at Arasen Stadion.
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.
