Viking vs Rosenborg
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Sunday, 24 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Viking Stadion (Stavanger).

Rosenborg are currently well in contention for a top-three finish, while Viking’s hopes for the same are hanging by a thread. With the visitors demanding respect in their previous visits to Viking Stadion as well, Rosenborg are likely to be too hot to handle for Viking in this one.

Viking vs Rosenborg Head to head (h2h)

  • Their last clash saw Viking at the receiving end of a 5-1 drubbing.
  • Half of their previous ten meetings have witnessed goals down their end.
  • Viking have not registered a win in any of their last ten fixtures. (W-0, D-1, L-9)

Viking vs Rosenborg Prediction

Viking dropped points for the third time in five games after their most recent matchup with Haugesund saw them at the losing end of a narrow 1-0 scorecard. The hosts have now picked up a win just twice in their past five matchups, garnering no more than seven points from a possible fifteen.

At the moment, the home side are sitting fifth in the league with no more than forty-three points to their name.

On the other hand, Rosenborg are right above them on the ladder with a five-point cushion. The visitors are unbeaten in their last four clashes in the Eliteserien, the most recent of which was a 3-2 win over Bodo/Glimt.

Furthermore, the away side have been securing the bragging rights in their previous four visits to this venue in a running. Hence, although Viking are on a five-match winning streak of their own at home as of now, the sheer dominance of their counterparts in h2h clashes here, certainly gives us reason to believe that the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Rosenborg at the end of the ninety minutes.

Furthermore, the visiting contingent are without a clean sheet to their name in their last ten outings in all competitions. Given that Viking have scored thirteen goals from their previous five first division games here alone, it is certainly safe to expect the hosts to find the back of the net at least once this Sunday as well.
