Viking vs Stabaek
Norway – Eliteserien
Date: Thursday, 16th May 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Viking Stadion (Stavanger).
After the strong start, they had to the season, Viking kind of failed in keeping up the momentum. But still, they do have an impressive sixth position in the table, and with their game in hand, the team could aim for a podium spot. The setting is in place for the team to go after their objective.
They are at home and are taking on a relegation-battler, who lost three of their last four fixtures. Stabaek is floating on the cut-off line with a surplus of just an extra point and could see themselves in the exit zone by the end of this match-day.
Viking has dominated Stabaek for far too long in h2h ties.
