Lillestrom Prediction- Can Lillestrom move up the table?

Lillestrom ended a run of 4 matches without a win last time out in the Norwegian top flight when they recorded a 3-0 win away at Valerenga.

Recent defeats to Bodo/Glimt 4-0 away and a 3-0 loss at home to Odd along with draws with Rosenborg and Mjondalen in 1-1 and 2-2 draws had prevented Lillestrom from pulling further away from the relegation zone.

However, the recent win against Valerenga will give the hosts confidence that they can grab a second win on the trot at their Åråsen Stadion.

Lillestrom hold a so-so home record which stands at 2-1-2 4/7 and includes wins over Ranheim and Haugesund, but also defeats to Molde and Odd.

It should be noted that the two defeats were against the top two clubs in the Eliteserien, so the visit of 8th placed Viking give the hosts a good chance of taking something from this clash.

In addition, Lillestrom have been fairly solid on home turf for a long while as they’ve lost just 3 of their last 17 matches.

Viking Prediction – Can Ranheim spoil Molde’s party?

Viking head into this Norwegian top flight clash with Lillestrom having recorded just 1 win out of their last 6 matches overall which was a 3-0 home win against Stabaek.

This should be of little surprise though as 3 of Viking’s 4 league wins so far this season have been achieved on home turf at their SR-Bank Arena.

Obviously, this means that Viking’s results away from home have been far from convincing, and their overall away record of 1-1-3 5/11 underlines this.

Their one success on their travels so far in this season’s Eliteserien was a 2-0 victory at bottom of the league outfit, Tromso, while also losing 3 of their first 5 matches as well.

Defeats at Odd, Ranheim and Molde perhaps show Viking’s vulnerability on the road at this level, and with just 3 away wins from their last 20 on the road, this seems to be the case.

In addition, Viking have managed to keep just 4 clean sheets out of these last 20 away matches, while also failing to score in 8 of these 20 too.


Key-Facts – Lillestrom v Viking

  • Lillestrom have lost just 3 of their last 17 matches at home in the Eliteserien
  • Viking have won just 3 from their last 20 away matches in the Eliteserien
  • Viking have managed to keep just 4 clean sheets out of these last 20 away matches


Betting Tips Verdict

Lillestrom have been reasonably consistent on home turf and they stand a good chance of at least a point, if not all three, against a poor travelling Viking outfit.
