Viking vs Haugesund
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Viking Stadion, Stavanger.
Rock-bottom Viking welcome Haugesund on Saturday in Stavanger. The hosts suffered yet another defeat last weekend, while the visitors added second victory in a row.
The last placed Viking suffered the 1-0 defeat in Lillestrom. Yet again, they were hopeless. After 13 games played their point count stands only at 8, and they are already 6 points from the safety. Unless they improve their form in the upcoming period, they will most likely move to a lower tier.
Viking suffered three defeats in the last five games in Stavanger, among two victories. Their goal difference on the home turf is negative (-1) and they are yet to play a stalemate in front of their fans.
Mid-table Haugesund strung two victories in a row as they stunned Rosenborg. They scored in the 3rd minute already and it turned out that was the only goal seen in that match. After severely frustrating the champions, it is safe to say their confidence is up to the roof.
Haugesund are one of the best sides on the road this season. They earned 9 points from 7 matches, winning three and losing four outings in the process. Also, they scored 10 while conceding 11 in their away games.
Viking vs Haugesund: Head-to-head
Both sides had their fair share of success in their recent meetings. In the last five, Viking were victories two times while the visitors won three outings. Their last two competitive games seen five goals scored in each (4-1, 3-2).
Viking vs Haugesund: Prediction
Viking aren’t showing any signs of improvement, while Haugesund will be hoping to build on their last week’s success when they overcame Rosenborg. We could also see the first draw at Viking Stadion this season, but Haugesund are looking closer to pick this one up.
