Lillestrom v Viking – Tippeligaen Betting Preview + Prediction
22 May 2016, Åråsen Stadion, 18:00
Lillestrøm could have to do without Simen Mikalsen again here, with Ole Martin Rindarøy the likely replacement. Besides that, they have a fit squad, but Kristinsson could make some changes as Mohamed Ofkir and Jørgen Kolstad could come in to get the attack going again after starting the last few games on the bench. They want to come out attacking here and have many options up front. Fred Friday is the main creative player and has shown some good goalscoring form lately, so much of the attack will come through him. They need to be vary of Viking’s counter-attacks though, so Bonke Innocent will as usual sit back while others attack. They’ve dropped a bit in form lately but have a good chance of overtaking Viking in the league table with a win here. They’ll look to take all three points but could settle for a draw.
Viking have struggled to score lately, so Jonevret could wish to make some changes to his side here. Claes Kronberg could be dropped in favour of Michael Haukås, and Patrick Pedersen and Zymer Bytyqi could also come in to get the attack going again. Viking’s attacks will as usual come most often through the wings, with central midfielders sitting back to provide balance and break down any attempt to attack from Lillestrøm. They could wish to start out rather balanced here, hoping to defend their point and hurt Lillestrøm on counter-attacks. They struggled in attack lately, but will be hoping to get back to winning ways here. Playing against Lillestrøm away is a tough game, so they could also settle for a point.
This is a great chance to bet on goals, as the league progress, so should the amount of goals per match. 1 unit on over 2.5 goals.
Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
