Stabaek put and end to their three match win-less run with a 2-1 win away at Stromsgodset. They drew back-to-back games and lost once before that. The real hero at the come back win at Stromsgodset was the young striker Ohi Omoijuanfo, who netted the winner with 10 minutes left on the clock.

Stabaek vs Viking: Prediction
We can start-off by saying Viking FK do not remain amongst the elites of Norwegian football as they once used to be. Moreover, they are in tatters at the start of the 2017 season.
Meanwhile, Stabaek were quick in regaining ground after a sloppy start. They look in good shape and are showing some excellent fighting spirit. Therefore, the value is in backing a home.
