Having triumphed at their one of the past 5 games of the season, Viking have since gone on to lose eight of their next ten matches at the top table of the Eliteserien. Lillestrom, by way of contrast, have enjoyed 15 wins in their previous 21 home games at this level, so the club from the capital will be confident of putting Eliteserien bottom side to the sword.
When Viking come calling, under 3.5 goals inevitably follows, with this being the case in each of their previous 18 away matches at the top table of the Eliteserien. Given that 16 of the most recent 19 Lillestrom home games at this level have followed the same pattern, it would come as a surprise to see anything different when the two teams square off against each other.
At least one of the two goalkeepers has emerged with a clean sheet from 15 of the previous 18 league games involving Viking, and both of their meetings with Lillestrom last season finished goalless. Speaking of the hosts, eight of their most recent 12 home matches have followed the same pattern, so anyone expecting a thriller is likely to be disappointed by this contest.
Lillestrom vs Viking Prediction
Somewhat incredibly, at least one of the two goalkeepers has emerged with a clean sheet from 13 of the previous 14 Viking games at this level, and they are without a goal in eight away matches on the bounce. As for Lillestrom, both teams have scored in just five of their last 19 home fixtures in the Eliteserien, so don’t expect too many fireworks.
