Rosenborg vs Viking Prediction & Betting tips
While most European leagues have now ended the season, the season in the Norwegian elite series is in full swing. This week, the eleventh game day is on the program and record champion Rosenborg Trondheim welcomes the guest from Stavanger.
After three game days and only one counter on the account, the head coach of the black and white, Eirik Horneland, was released. Interim coach Trond Henriksen is currently steering the sporting skills and RBK is slowly working its way back to the top spots in the league.
The guest from Stavanger also followed the top form for a long time, but in the last few weeks the desired results have been achieved again, so that the team moved a bit away from the table basement.
Nevertheless, according to the odds, the most popular betting providers in the game Rosenborg Trondheim vs Viking Stavanger make no prediction on the dark blue and white and instead see them in the clear outsider role. The kick-off in the Lerkendal Stadium takes place on Thursday at 19:30 p.m.
Even the last season did not go according to the ideas of the black and white. After four championships in a row, RBK ended the season only in third place in the table of Norwegian parent series. The start of the new season also went wrong, so that those responsible were forced to react and coach Eirik Horneland had to pack his bags early.
Under interim coach Henriksen, Trondheim is slowly working his way up in the classification. In the meantime, the record champion has collected four wins and three draws from ten games and is in sixth place with fifteen points. The gap to the league primus Bodo / Glimt, who has won all league games so far, is still a whopping fifteen points.
But at least third place, which would qualify for participation in the Europa League qualification, is within reach again. In the current season, Rosenborg stands for low-goal games. Only 21 goals were scored in the duels of the black and white, which corresponds to the lowest value in the league.
Under the new coach, the Troillongan put on an impressive series of six games without a defeat before RBK got it again last weekend. The Henriksen team lost 1-0 to FK Haugesund. A penalty goal in the early stages of the game decided the duel. The next series against Stavanger must now be started so that the contact with the top positions does not break again.
The eight-time champion from the southwest of Norway started the current season with some starting difficulties. In the first four games of the season, the dark blue and whites did not make a single three, so the reigning cup winner was only in the penultimate place in the table.
But Viking’s shape curve is slowly increasing. Stavanger took ten points from the last six games. The last two duels at Haugesund (2: 0) and against Sarpsborg (3: 0) were won without conceding a goal. But with 18 goals conceded, the guests still deliver the second worst value in the league.
Overall, the dark blue and white have collected three wins and two draws from the first ten league games. With the eleven counters thus achieved, they are currently ranked tenth in the table. The lead on the relegation place is three points, which shows how important the last two successes were.
So far, the guests have not been convincing in the games on the opponent’s place. Only a success could be celebrated. Expecting the second victory of all places in Trondheim seems presumptuous. After all, the last threesome kidnapped from the Lerkendal Stadium dates from 2005. Since then there has not been much to get for Viking.
