Valerenga host Viking at Intility Arena and are desperate looking to halt their run of three straight Eliteserien defeats.
Valerenga are in 13th place with 10 points after 10 matches. They were defeated 1-0 in their last Eliteserien match at home against Stromsgodset, their third straight loss. In their last six league matches, they have won two, drawn one and lost three. At home, this season, they are pretty poor with four losses and just one win in five Eliteserien contests.
The mediocre start of Valerenga in this season combined with the recent negative results led the management to sack Dag-Eilev from the team's bench. Interim coach Jan Fronte Nornes led the team comfortably to the round of 16 in the Cup on his midweek debut.
The trio of Henrik Bjordal, Daniel Hakans, and Seedy Jatta have provided stand-out moments for Valerenga this season. They are the team's joint top scorers with three goals.
Viking earned a 3-1 victory over Brann at home in their last Eliteserien match, putting them in fourth spot on 20 points through 11 matches. They remain unbeaten in their last three Eliteserien matches having 2 wins and 1 draw. Viking, meanwhile, have won four and lost two in their last six. When playing on the road, they have earned seven points from 15 available this season, having 2 wins, one draw and 2 losses overall.
Suprisingly, Viking suffered a shocking elimination in the midweek cup match, as they couldn't overcome the obstacle of Raufoss, who plays in a lower division, losing in the penalty shootout.
Viking's most productive player in attack has been Zlatko Tripic, who has scored on six occasions.
Valerenga vs Viking History & Statistics

Valerenga and Viking have both scored in their last 6 h2h meetings.

Valerenga conceded at least one goal from Viking in the last 9 games.
Valerenga, with a new coach, secured an easy qualification in the Cup competition and will try to bounce back in the league with boosted morale. Viking, coming off a shocking Cup elimination, is more likely to lack fresh legs. Considering their instability in defense combined with their high efficiency in their attacking tasks the most likely scenario here is both teams to score at least once.
