Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Sandefjord and Viking face each other in the opening match of day 8 of the new Eliteserien campaign. Sandefjord are on a three-game losing run in the Norwegian top flight, with the team conceding eight goals in those defeats. The Whalers are desperate to get back on course, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Viking. Head coach Hans Erik Odegaard should have a full squad to choose from.
Viking, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 4-1 win over Valerenga, and we predict that they will take advantage of Sandefjord’s shaky defence. Both Holm and Kjartansson are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team, but the duo was not missed at all in the crushing of Valerenga. In their last meeting in the Norwegian elite division the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
