Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Stabaek and Viking face each other at Nadderud Stadion in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. Stabaek aim to move away from the danger zone, whilst Viking are still hoping they could grab a place in European competitions. The hosts head into the match following a goalless draw with Sarpsborg, whereas the visitors are eyeing their fourth consecutive victory in the Norwegian top flight.
Viking have been scoring goals for fun of late and seeing that they impressed in back-to-back wins over Valerenga (4-0) and Mjondalen (4-1), we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team. One of the men to watch in Bjarne Berntsen’s team will be Even Ostensen, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late. In the first half of the season Viking crushed Stabaek 3-0.
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.
