The away team will be hoping to regain the lead they lost the previous matchday. The home side have gone two consecutive games without a win and will be hoping to use the support of their home fans to put an end to that bad luck. Check out the Odd vs Viking prediction available for free.
The Latest betting tips and Odd vs Viking predictions
Viking to win
Despite losing the previous matchday and playing away this time, I expect The Dark Blues to win to stay in the title race. The last head-to-head ended in a Viking victory.
In addition, the home team won just one of their last five meetings. It has been more than a year since the Oddrane’s last win over their next opponent.
Over 2.5 goals
Both players have struggled to keep clean sheets in recent matches. That is one of the main reasons why most of their matches have ended with three or even more goals on the scoreboard.
In six of their last seven head-to-head meetings, there have been more than 2.5 goals. The only one they played this year saw a total of 5 goals, so I expect to see 3 goals or even more on matchday 24 of the Norwegian Premier League.
Both teams to score
The home team has five consecutive clean sheets. The away team has kept a clean sheet in only two of their last seven matches. This considerably increases the likelihood that we see BTTS in this duel.
The last time the two teams met each scored more than 1.5 goals. The away team’s defence was very fragile last time out conceding four goals.
Odd vs Viking match preview and latest team news
The Oddrane barely managed a draw in what was a key three-point game against one of the worst teams in the table, Haugesund. Daan Huisman opened the scoring for his side but a defensive lapse made it easy for Huegesund to score with less than 20 minutes left on the clock.
The Dark Blues were unable to maintain the impressive run that had kept them at the top of the table for another matchday. The previous matchday they visited one of their direct rivals, Molde. Although this was a tough challenge, Viking were not expected to concede 4 goals and lose first place in the tournament.
Odd vs Viking h2h and stats
Odd have won 9 times, Viking 6 times and Viking have drawn 5 times in their last 20 head-to-head meetings. The last meeting between the two was played 5 months ago at The Dark Blues stadium and ended in a 3-2 victory for Morten Jensen, who defeated coach Pal Arne Johansen for the first time.
