Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Following three consecutive wins in the Eliteserien, Viking played out a goalless draw with Stabaek in their last league fixture. The dark blues aim to keep their hopes of booking their place in the Europa League alive and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Tromso on Matchday 25. In their last home game in the Norwegian elite division Viking recorded a routine 4-1 win over Mjondalen.
The Boys, on the other hand, produced their best performance of the season in their last league fixture, with the team rolling over Kristiansund 5-0. Tromso are determined to avoid relegation to the Norwegian second tier, but they will have a big fish to fry in Sunday’s football match against Bjarne Berntsen’s troops. In their last meeting in the Eliteserien Viking recorded a 2-0 win over Tromso, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
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.
