Norwegian Eliteserien Stabaek vs Viking The hosts are currently flying high. The team sits in 5th position with 17 points equal to 4th Sarpsborg and 3rd Brann. The team looks to be in a good form. At home they have 3 wins a defeat and a draw. The draw came last home game with a goalless draw against leaders Rosenborg. Interesting to note here is that the team scored at least 2 times in their 3 home victories. Last round Stabaek won against Stromsgodset away. The team wasn’t looking confident when in possession thus Stromsgodset was the team with the ball. The goalscoring opportunities though were mostly for Stabaek. They stroke their blows about 10 minutes before the ends of both halves. Tonny Brochman was the man of the moment as he showed great skill for the first goals opening space for a shot and blasting the ball at the back of the net from the outside of the penalty area. In the second half he set up Omoijuanfo with a perfect opportunity and the winger fired it home. Viking are having nightmare start of the season. The team is currently rock bottom with only 4 points under their belts. Only 6 goals scored and 14 conceded shows the team has problems at both ends. They have 3 defeats and a draw on the road scoring just a single goal. Losing is always bad but doing it with 4-0 and 3-0 certainly hurts their fans. Last round the team lost to Aalesund at home with a full time score of 1-2. The team got lucky as Aalesund’s Hoff was careless enough to head the ball into his own net after a free kick cross. Still Viking couldn’t hold it for long and conceded a penalty which was converted by Mos. Viking continued to struggle throughout the game and Aalesund scored second goal minutes before the end. Edwin Gyasi cut inside from the left and curled the ball in the far corner for the final 1-2. What we have here is a game where one of the teams in really struggling while the other flies high. Viking may have advantage over Stabaek in their history but currently the team looks in a really bad shape. Stabaek’s 3 home wins all came with at least 3 goals difference while Viking lost heavily away from home. My pick here is Stabaek -1AH for 2.79 at Pinancle. Good Luck!
