Viking vs Bodo/Glimt Prediction & Match Preview

Viking vs Bodo/Glimt
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 23 June 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Viking Stadion (Stavanger).

Disregarding their loss against Brann, Bodo has been going steady in their pursuit for the top spot in the table. The last day, they took advantage of the fixture against the lower-tier Stromsgodset.

The favorites had to shed sweat to get their due, but they did get it at the end. The deadlock was broken only in the 62nd minute, but shortly after, Glimt got a gift of an own goal to raise the tally to 2-0.

Viking too has a similar story to tell. Their only loss in the last five match-days came against toppers, Molde, and with them having games in hand, European spots are in sights.

The previous day, their tie was against Lillestrom, and the squad smartly took advantage of their extra man, as the hosts were shown an early red card. The heated affair saw the guests scoring right at the end of the first half, and late into the latter 45 minutes.

Viking vs Bodo/Glimt Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Viking won the last four games in a row.
  • 13 of the last 14 matches saw Bodo conceding two or more goals.
  • Six of the last seven clashes at this venue saw home wins.
  • 11 of the last 13 encounters at this stadium had the home team scoring two or more goals.

Viking vs Bodo/Glimt Prediction

Viking is on a three-match winning streak and was unbeaten in 12 of their last 16. At home, the team avoided a loss in 15 of their last 20 too. They also scored two or more goals in their last three fixtures on the trot, and in five of their last seven.

Bodo, on the other hand, lost two of their last three games and was winless in three of their last five.

H2h ties too point towards the hosts of the day as the favorites. They won the last four such ties in a row, and six of the last seven at this stadium too. Moreover, only twice has Glimt won an h2h encounter on the road in the last two decades, and the last one came five years back.

As such, count on the guests having a torrid time this weekend. Regarding goals, Bodo conceded two or more goals in 13 of the last 14 face-to-face clashes, and in 11 of the last 13 at this ground. Importantly, Glimt has never kept a clean sheet against this opponent away from home.

By all means, expect the hosts to put at least two goals in the net.
