Viking Preview – Can Viking continue cup success?

Knockout rounds in cup competition was something of a speciality for Thursday evening’s hosts, Viking, last season as the hosts won the NM Cupen last term by beating Haugesund 1-0 in the final to earn their place in the 2nd qualifying round stage of this season’s Europa League.

In addition, Viking bring an unbeaten five-match sequence in this season’s Norwegian Eliteserien which includes winning their last three matches on the trot against Stromsgodset, Molde and Kristiansund, into this tie with Scottish Premiership outfit, Aberdeen.

Incidentally, goals have also featured on a regular basis whenever Viking have been involved in recent times as nine of Viking’s last 11 matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals, while the hosts have lost just two of their last 12 home ties in the Europa League.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Aberdeen Preview – Can Aberdeen extend winning streak?

After losing their opening day fixture at home against Rangers in the new Scottish Premiership season, Thursday’s visitors, Aberdeen, have since staged an impressive recovery by winning their subsequent five matches on the trot in all competitions.

Four wins in the Scottish top flight against St Johnstone, Livingston, Hibernian and Kilmarnock along with the 1st qualifying round win in the Europa League over Faroe Islands outfit, NSI, in a 6-0 thrashing at Pittodrie will give Aberdeen plenty of confidence heading into this Europa League tie.

However, results away from home in this competition haven’t all gone the way of The Dons as they’ve suffered defeats at Apollon, Burnley and Rijeka in the past three seasons and their last win on the road at this level came with a 2-1 win at Finnish club, RoPS.
