Norway Eliteserien – Stabaek v Viking Preview (6/10/19)

Match Preview

Stabaek are seemingly grinding their way to safety. They aren’t easily beaten although don’t win that many games either. A 0-0 draw away at Sarpsborg last time out brought to an end a run of four straight higher scoring games. I have noticed for the most part that matches on their own grass surface have been more closed and tight though. It can be difficult to play proper technical football on this pitch. Travelling here today are one of the big form teams of the division in Viking. They are unbeaten in 7 games and picked up 17 points during this fantastic run. They are also into the semi finals of the Norwegian Cup so all is very rosy in the Stavanger garden right now. It’s difficult to bet against Viking at the moment and the odds look about right. Maybe a draw could be on the cards and my general gut feeling is that this will be a low scoring sort of contest.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
