Aalesund vs Viking
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Color Line Stadium.
Viking seem to have caught the last train in the battle for saving the top flight status as they came on a four-point gap to Kristiansund at the 14th position of the standings with a decent run of results in the last couple of weeks.
Can De Morkebla maintain the fine form and take advantage of Aalesund’s struggling period to get closer to the safe zone?
Tangotroyene just can’t find the breakthrough at the back since the demolishing 3-0 defeat to Stabaek made it four losses and a draw run in last five outings in all competitions for Trond Fredriksen and his men.
The team has been super easy to break down recently as they conceded three goals on three separate occasions in last four matches in all competitions.
Such form will be the music to the ears of Samuel Adegbenro who has been enjoying a hot run of form recently.
The Nigerian striker bagged three goals in last two matches for Viking and he is a must-take bet to score anytime at the massive-value 5/2 odds.
Ian Burchnall’s men are undefeated in last three league fixtures and they bagged at least two goals in three of their last four games in Eliteserien.
Aalesund vs Viking: Head to head
The head to head statistics also favour Viking who have won 13 of 26 matches with Aalesund.
It is interesting to note that 11 of previous 12 H2H meetings between the two sides saw both teams on target as we certainly expect this term to be continued given their current form.
Aalesund vs Viking: Prediction
The best value can be found in backing Viking to score two or more goals past the struggling defense of Aalesund’s which is priced up at 13/8 odds.
Braver tipsters will also fancy Viking to win T& BTTS at the sky-high 11/2 odds.
