Stromsgodset – Can Stromsgodset continue their recent improve with a third straight home win?

It was a really challenging start to the season for Stromdgodset. Three defeats in their first four games was not the beginning to the campaign they wanted but they have done so well to recover and now find themselves in fourth spot and with a chance to climb above Molde into third spot if they can win this game. After that run of defeats, they have went on to put together a run of five matches unbeaten – winning three times. A big win over Rosenborg kick started things and they have barely looked back.

They also done well to come back from two goals down away to champions Bodo / Glimt on Wednesday, taking a point courtesy of a 2-2 draw and more importantly, showing a real determination to continue their unbeaten run.


Our betting prediction
2-2 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 24 May)
After a ninth place finish last season, the club kept faith with the joint manager approach of Hakon Wibe-Lung and Bjorn Petter Ingebretsen who took over just over a year ago. They know this season has to be more positive and if they can get a win against one of the teams who are considered title contenders then the signs are good.
Johan Rove has started the season in very good form with five goals in the league so far. His best ever return was 10 goals in 2020 so he is well on his way to recording a career-high in this campaign.

Viking Preview – Will Viking bounce back to winning ways following two consecutive draws?

Viking finished third place last season and six points behind Bodo. It was a distinct improvement on the season previous and there is a feeling now that they can progress again and perhaps a first title since 1991. Consider they were a second division club as recently as 2018, then it has been a tremendous effort and the consistency shown in the last three years has been commendable.

Another team who have co-coaches, Viking’s duo have been there since last season and are intent on upsetting the status quo.

No team has played more league games than Viking who are preparing for their 11th match already. A win here would put them back on top ahead of Lillestrom who play on Sunday. They come into this game on the back of two draws meaning they have shared the points in three of the last five. More dropped points here would have them wondering if they do have what it takes, especially with Molde lying in wait with games in hand in behind.

The talented Veton Berisha tops the scoring charts with six goals this season. He’s closing in on 50 league goals for the club having only joined in 2020 having notched 16 and 22 goals in his previous campaigns.
