Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
SR-Bank Arena will host Sunday’s football game between Viking and Lillestrom, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. Viking are eyeing a place in European competitions, whereas Lillestrom are determined to avoid relegation to Norwegian second tier. The SR-Bank Arena outfit are a real force to be reckoned with at home and you should bear in mind that they recorded five wins in previous six home games in the national championship.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been totally out of form of late, with the team failing to win previous seven league fixtures. Viking are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home in the Norwegian elite division, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. One of the men to watch in the home team will be Fredrik Torsteinbo, who scored his 4th goal of the season in a 4-2 loss to Kristiansund.
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.
