Rosenborg vs Viking
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Lerkendal Stadion (Trondheim).
Viking has entered a bit of a rough stretch and has been struggling to put points on the board. They are winless in their last three games and have managed just a single win from their last five attempts in the league.
The last day, the team was even unable to register a win against relegation-threatened Mjondalen, and that has taken a serious toll on their confidence.
The opposite is the story of their counterparts. Rosenborg won four of their last five games, and three of these wins were against squads higher than them in the table. Their home form has also been right on point, with them losing just one of their such encounters so far in their campaign.
Despite the stark contrast in form, either share nearby spots in the points-table and whoever wins this tie will find themselves higher than the other in tally.

Rosenborg vs Viking Prediction
Viking was winless in three of their last four games and was so in four of their last five in the Eliteserien. They have also not tasted a win in their last three straight attempts in the league competition.
On the other hand, Rosenborg won eight of their last ten matches and was unbeaten in 12 of their last 14. At home, they are on a streak of five invincible games and won four of them too.
Importantly, against each other, the hosts of the day have had the upper hand for quite a long time. They won the last four encounters in a row and has remained unbeaten against them since 2005. At home, they registered 10 of the 12 wins and scored two goals or more in the last five clashes at the stadium.
Moreover, Viking failed to score in their last three visits to this ground, and at present, are at a massive disadvantage. They are by no means a threat to the home team this Friday.
