Head to Head


Odd have won three of the last four clashes with Viking, including doing the double last season. A 2-1 away win was followed by a 3-0 victory at home in 2020.

Odd Form


Odd reeled off three straight wins to close in on the top three, but have collected just one point from two games since.

Jan Frode Nornes's side won 3-1 against Brann, 3-0 against Tromso and then defeated Mjondalen 2-1.

A 2-2 draw with Rosenborg followed as Tobias Lauritsen earned Odd a point with a 90th minute goal.

But last week they were put in their place by leaders Molde, who dished out a 5-0 hammering.

Odd Team News


Odd's leading goalscorer Mushaga Bakenga should return from suspension.

Veteran defender Steffen Hagen remains sidelined with a toe injury.

Viking Form


Viking are on a four-game unbeaten run which started with a 2-1 win over Sarpsborg in June.

Morten Jensen's side have since drawn all three Eliteserien games played since.

They drew 3-3 at home to Staebek and 2-2 away to reigning champions Bodo/Glimt.

Viking needed a last minute equaliser from Zlatko Tripic last week to claim a 1-1 draw with Stromsgodset.

Viking Team News


Viking are without five through injury, including defender Sondre Bjorshol.

Midfield quartet Johnny Furdal, Sebastian Henriksen, Kristoffer Lokberg and Fredrik Torsteinbo are also ruled out.
