    Viking to continue stellar run at Brann

    On Thursday evening, Brann host Viking at the Brann Stadion in the Norwegian Eliteserien, as both teams look to maintain promising recent runs of form.

    Brann have experienced a poor campaign, as the boys from Bergen currently sit in the relegation play-off spot in the Eliteserien.

    They are just two points above the automatic relegation spots and five points adrift of the safety of 15th place after collecting just 20 points from 23 outings.

    However, in recent weeks there is a sense that a turnaround could be afoot for the home team. A 3-3 draw at Odd in their last league match made Brann six matches unbeaten in the Norwegian top-flight.

    The big problem is that they simply draw too many matches, as four of their six unbeaten matches have finished all square.

    Brann’s recent home record has been inconsistent in the Eliteserien, although they have lost just one of their previous seven league matches on home soil.

    Viking are enjoying a stellar recent run of form that has taken the side from Stavanger up to third place in the Eliteserien table.

    In fact, they are only outside the European qualification spots courtesy of inferior goal difference to third-place Rosenborg.

    The visitors are now unbeaten in their last four league outings, having won the previous three matches in the Norwegian top-flight.

    Viking’s recent games have certainly produced a fair share of goals, as six of their previous seven matches have produced over 2.5 goals.

    Viking have a decent recent away record in the Eliteserien, as they are unbeaten in their previous four away matches in the Norwegian top-flight. They have also lost just once in the previous seven games on their travels in the Eliteserien.

    Forebet predicts that Viking will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter to boost their chances of sealing a top-three spot this season.
