Odd to Win

After a spirited start to the campaign, Viking have stuttered in their recent outings. They are unbeaten in their last four outings but the most recent three fixtures have been stalemates. On the other hand, Odd has been resurgent in the Eliteserien. Barring their defeat to Molde, they had been unbeaten in five fixtures, winning three and drawing four. Given both side’s recent form and including home advantage for the Oddrane, it is easy to see the hosts coming out as victors in this fixture.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Jan Frode Nornes’s Odd have a peculiar similarity with their Saturday night rivals. Both sides like to keep matters interesting and offer a lot of goalmouth action. All five of Oddrane’s recent fixtures have seen a bare minimum of three goals. Viking are not far behind with their tally standing at four fixtures. With both sides involved in high scoring fixtures, this encounter should not be any different and we should see an Over 2.5 goal scoreline after this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In their last six fixtures, both sides have failed to score in two of Odd’s outings. These results came against teams at the opposite end of the spectrum. Molde shut them out in a 5-0 hammering, and it was Odd who registered a 3-0 victory over relegation-threatened Tromso. Across the same period, Viking have only seen one fixture with nil reported on the scoreboard. The stats provide plenty of insight into tendencies followed by both outfits and these trends should follow in this fixture.

Odd vs Viking Fixture Preview

Odd

The Oddrane are flying high under Jan Frode Nornes. The manager has turned them into a competitive outfit that is equally adept in all facets of the game. However, if they are to make that jump up to battle it out with the Eliteserien elite, they need to ramp up their backline performances, which has cost them points. Work needs to be done in attack as well, especially with the scoring burden held only by Veton Berisha.

Viking

The partnership of Bjarte Lunde Aarsheim and Morten Jensen has ironed out the chinks in Viking’s armour. They score with flawless efficiency as testified by their 22 goals in 12 fixtures. The likes of Mushaga Bakenga need to be complimented for their efforts as they have ploughed Viking forward. However, the head coach duo needs to look at the issues with their backline. They have conceded 24 goals, the second-most in the entire league and a tally only bettered by bottom-placed Brann.
