Viking FK vs Stabaek Preview 30/06/2021
On Wednesday evening, Viking and Stabaek go head-to-head at the SR-Bank Arena, as the home team looks to move closer to the top three spots in the Norwegian Eliteserien.
Viking have been highly inconsistent of late in the Eliteserien, as they go into this clash on the back of two wins and two defeats from their last four outings in the Norwegian top-flight.

Last time out, the side from Stavanger recorded a 2-1 win at Sarpsborg.
Despite their recent erratic form in the league, Viking are still just a point outside the top-three and the European places in the Eliteserien.
One aspect of Viking’s recent games that has been consistent is that their games have been high-scoring, as there have been over 2.5 goals scored in their last six games in the Eliteserien.
Viking have a pretty strong recent home record, as they have won six of their last eight home games in the Norwegian top-flight, including their last two home league matches.
A key to the decent recent home form is that they have scored at least twice in all six of those recent home wins.
Stabaek have picked up just five points from their first eight matches in the Norwegian top-flight and currently sit in the relegation zone.
The visitors started the league campaign with a three-game unbeaten run. However, things have gone downhill from there, as they have now suffered five straight defeats in the Eliteserien.
To make matters worse, they have conceded at least two goals in each of those five losses.
Stabaek have struggled on their travels of late in the Eliteserien, as they have suffered three straight defeats away from home in the Norwegian top-flight.
PlusBet.net predicts that Viking will record a victory in a high-scoring clash, which will continue Stabaek’s struggles of late.
3 – 1
