Viking vs FC FCSB
Europe – Europa Conference League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 25 August 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: SR-Bank Arena.
Viking had secured a podium finish the last season in the Norwegian top flight and have been in great form lately. Meanwhile, FCSB are part of the Romanian First Division and they had delivered a great campaign the last time around.
In fact, at the end of the regular season they were trailing by 14 points below the toppers and by the end of the Championship Round they had cut down this lead to just one point.
It was tough for them to miss out on the title for such a small margin but they managed to leave their mark in the competition anyway.
It also deserves to be mentioned that they had scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the tournament as well.
Meanwhile only one team had scored more goals than Viking in the Norwegian league the last season, and they had missed out on the title by just 6 points.
They too are going through a good series of results lately, and are consistently finding the back of the net. Their counterparts for the day also have a similar story to share.
On top of that, the first leg between the 2 teams had finished as a goal-fest and more of the same is expected this Thursday as well.
