Stromsgodset vs Viking Prediction & Match Preview

Stromsgodset vs Viking
Norway- Eliteserien
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Marienlyst Stadion (Drammen)

The home team finally came back to winning ways after two consecutive defeats. They could possibly get another win in this upcoming game. Also, they are not so convincing at home as they lost two recent matches here. But since the Vikings are out of form they could be in for a close game.

The Dark Blues are on a two-match drawing streak but not out of the relegation zone. They have 13 points after losing seven of their 14 games so far. The 3-3 draw against Stabaek at home shows their inability to protect a lead. They could have won that match if they had not conceded late in the second half.

Stromsgodset vs Viking: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The hosts have two wins and a loss in the last five meetings with this opposition.
  • Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five games.
  • The hosts remain unbeaten against the Dark Blues at this ground for over 13 years.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in nine of their last ten head to head matches here.
  • Nine of those games also had more than 2.5 goals in total.

Stromsgodset vs Viking: Prediction

All five previous home games for Godset had no shortage of goals. They scored in four of those matches but have conceded far more than what they manage to score. The majority of their previous head to head games also had a high scoring finish at this ground.

Both the Vikings and hosts found the target in those recent clashes here. The away team is also known for being shabby in defense. Even though the home team is much higher in the table, they have given away 29 goals already this season. This is more than what the Vikings have conceded in their 14 matches. So I am backing a score with more than 2.5 goals with both teams scoring.

Stromsgodset vs Viking: Betting Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.57 (4/7).
  • Both teams to score @ 1.40 (2/5).
