Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Viking and Stabaek square off against each other at Viking Stadion in the Eliteserien round 10. The Dark Blues quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Sandefjord, with the team beating Sarpsborg on the road, and, no doubt, the triumph helped them regain a much-needed confidence. Keep in mind, though, that Lokberg and Tripic remain in the recovery room, while Bjorshol is a major doubt.
Stabaek, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Bodo. Considering that the visitors are on a five-game losing run in the Norwegian top flight, we are tempted to put our money on Viking, who are eyeing their sixth win of the process. Midfielder Luc Kassi is injured, but he should be the only absentee in the away team ahead of the trip to Stavanger.
