Kristiansund vs Viking
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 12 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Kristiansund Stadion.
The Owls have been performing at a very high level lately, and it’s obvious that they are gunning for a podium spot – in order to get themselves a European ticket.
As of now they are four points below the third spot. However, the third-placed Odd are pitted against toppers Bodo this weekend, and this presents Christian Michelsen’s men an opportunity to make a pass at the spot.
Considering their recent form, their determination to jump higher up the table, the struggles of their upcoming opponents the Dark Blues on the road, as well as in h2h clashes – expect a strong performance by Kristiansund this weekend.
Kristiansund vs Viking: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns, which was just a month back, the Owls registered a 1-2 win on the road.
- They are also on a two-game winning run against this opponent, and have scored a total of six goals from these two fixtures.
- The hosts are unbeaten at this stadium since 2017.
- They have also scored two or more goals in all match-ups at this venue, barring a single game.
Kristiansund vs Viking: Prediction
Michelsen’s men had won five of their former six overall games, and have built quite some momentum. They are hoping to keep this form alive to get themselves into the top-three of the table.
They have also scored two or more goals in all these five games, and are on a three-match winning run at home – where they had scored three or more goals in all these three appearances.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in ten of their last fifteen overall match-ups, and they remained so in seven of their last nine road trips.
In addition, the latest h2h clash between the two had taken place just a month back, and then the Owls recorded a 1-2 win on the road.
On top of that, at this stadium, the hosts have a 100% unbeaten record disregarding a single meeting, and have scored two or more goals in all such fixtures barring one.
As such, expect Kristiansund to be the better team on the pitch this Saturday.
