I personally think the result of the match is difficult to call. Firstly, it has to be mentioned this is somewhat of West Coast derby and the rivalry between the two teams is intense. Nobody will give an inch and I expect a committed physical battle from both sets of players. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this was an under 2.5 sort of match, but all it takes is an early goal in a fixture like this and it could explode. Viking lost their first four games but played much better than their results suggested. They have looked much more dangerous since key left winger Samuel Adegbenro returned to the side after injury, but Brann have a good defence and might be able to do a decent job on him. Honestly, no result would surprise me here. It’s too risky to go against Brann at home, but equally Viking have shown a few times this year that they can lose even when playing well. I’m happy to sit this one out, it looks like a tough match to bet on.
