Viking will look to end their four-match winless run when travelling to face Stromsgodset this weekend.

After back-to-back defeats against Bodo/Glimt and Sandefjord, Saturday's hosts returned to winning ways last week. It's fair to say Henrik Pedersen will expect a determined display from his side, to build on their narrow 3-2 win over Haugesund.

But after watching three Stromsgodset starters suffer game-ending injuries last Sunday, will they drop points here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Stromsgodset vs Viking Betting Tips

Viking's poor recent form has seen them slip into the relegation play-off berth after 14 matches – 14th place, coincidentally. Defeats against Rosenborg and Kristiansund were followed by high-scoring draws against Aalesunds and Staebaek. Both, for the record, were winnable fixtures that went begging for a wasteful Viking team.

Veton Berisha is their top goalscorer (7) this term, but their next highest is joint assist-leader Zymer Bytqi (3). Quite frankly, that's not good enough for a side that finished fifth, just five points shy of Europa League qualification last term.

There's still plenty of time for them to right their wrongs, but it has to start soon – otherwise their struggles will continue. Stromsgodset are five points and five places better off, but they too have stagnated after an impressive start to the campaign.

They lost just once in their first six fixtures, yet have since recorded five more defeats with high-scoring margins in most. Saturday's hosts have a superior H2H record against Viking (10 wins, five draws, four defeats), but who won their last meeting?

You guessed it. Viking were 4-0 winners this time last year (August 18, 2019) and the score could've been even more convincing. Which leads me onto a difficult decision…

Stromsgodset vs Viking Correct Score Predictions

Form can be deceiving but after 14 games, it's clear neither are enjoying a great run right now.

Originally leaning towards a narrow Stromsgodset victory, I'm not convinced they'll effectively deal with Viking's attacking capabilities. BTTS here.
