Mjondalen vs Viking
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 30 June 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Isachsen Stadion (Mjøndalen).
Mjondalen is in the relegation zone and is finding it hard to shake off that tag. They are in the midst of a terrible spell, and to be frank, possesses the worst defense in the entire league.
The team has won just two games so far this season, and only one in front of their home crowd. Once again, the squad has let in the most number of home goals in the Eliteserien.
Viking has two matches in hand, and if used properly, could make a giant leap in standings. Their plan was put on temporary hold though, the last match-day. At home, they were shocked by a four-goal effort from the visiting Bodo.
The seven-goal thriller ended in a final scoreline of 3-4, in favor of the visitors. Despite the loss, the home side deserves appreciation for twice cutting down the two-goal lead of Glimt.
Mjondalen vs Viking Head-to-head (h2h)

- The last time these two met, Viking registered a 2-4 away win.
Mjondalen vs Viking Prediction
Viking won four of their last five matches and scored two or more goals in all five. The team registered a total of 16 goals from these last five ties. On the road, they netted twice or more in 15 of their last 21 attempts and is on a four-game winning run.
Also, the last h2h tie saw them registering a huge 2-4 away win, and on another note, the last two such clashes also had away wins.
Going on, Mjondalen was winless in six of their last nine matches, and in six of their last seven at home. Also, they were unable to keep a clean sheet in 12 of their last 13 appearances in front of the home crowd.
Keeping in line with the trend, we expect top-performer Viking to avoid a loss at any cost.
Regarding goals, the home advantage will play a factor, and also take into account that the visitors of this fixture have never been able to keep a clean sheet in an h2h game. Moreover, they also failed to do so in 21 of their last 24 road trips.
With these in mind, backing the BTTS option should bring good returns.
