Sarpsborg to Win

Heading into this fixture, Sarpsborg trail Viking by three points. They can bridge that gap and leapfrog their rivals on the night to claim a sixth place on the points table. Confidence will be high for the hosts after their 0-1 away victory over Rosenborg. The fact that Viking lost comprehensively in their most recent away trip will surely add credence to their chances.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Just one of Sarpsborg’s seven Eliteserien fixtures have seen three or more goals. The hosts like to keep things compact at the back and are cautious when going forward. This is evidenced by their five goals scored and six conceded. For Viking, this statistic reads seven in eight domestic outings where the scoreline read Over 2.5 goals. This match should follow that trend given the visitors’ poor defensive record, which is second-worst in the league.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Viking have not kept a single clean sheet this entire campaign. However, they have been shut out thrice. On the other hand, with four clean sheets to their name Sarpsborg 08 have relied on their defence to keep them in business. Historically speaking, this match has seen both teams get on the scoreboard, with four of the five matches seeing the scoreboard ticked by both sides. We expect the trend to follow as the disciplined Sarpsborg take on the erratic Viking.

Sarpsborg vs Viking Fixture Preview

Sarpsborg

Alongside Kristiansund, Sarpsborg have come up as the side keeping both ends tight and keeping their top half of the place. If they are to realize higher ambitions of qualifying for the Europa Conference League, they will have to up the ante in scoring goals. Lars Bohinen’s efforts with the backline have paid dividends and it is now time that the attacking lineup also gets accounted for.

Viking

Throughout their topsy turvy campaign, Veton Berisha and Samuel Fridjonsson have come up as essential cogs to the Viking express. The Dark Blues are in the vicinity of making it to the top three and with good reason. They have continued to chip at their rivals scorelines with ease but have been let down by their defence. To make the next push, Viking have to ensure that they plug their leaky defence.
