Viking started this season very good and they are standing at the 7th position after 13 rounds.
Today they shouldn’t have too much problems against Brann, the team from the bottom of table. Viking is not impressive when they are playing at home (only two wins in 6 home matches), but they improved their performance in the last four matches with 3 wins and one draw.
In home team, midfielder Joackim Jørgensen (12/0 m) is doubtful.
Brann is in a very bad form with only 8 points in the 13 matches. They have 5 lost matches in a row in Tippeligaen. Brann have to start collecting points in order to avoid relegation.
Their main problem is defence. They have the worst defence in Tippeligaen – conceded 27 goals in 13 matches (average 2 goals per match). Things could be even worse for Brann because they have problems with injuries and suspensions, especially in defence. Four defenders are out: Markus Jonsson (4/0 d), Vadim Demidov (5/0 d) and Daniel Mosjov (5/0 d) are all out due to injury, while Birkir Mar Sævarsson (10/0 d) is suspended.
Without any doubt, Viking is a big favorite to win this one and I expect an easy home win. Over 2.5 goals also could be a good betting option.
Viking vs Brann Betting Tips: Viking -1 Ah @ 1.65 (Bet365) ; over 2.5 goals @ 1.44 (Bet365)
