Aalesund vs Viking FK (By: Akebob)
Aalesund threw off the cup two of Norway's biggest names in the two previous stages of the Cup, Molde & Rosenborg.
They are to the top of the 2nd division since the start of the season, with just one defeat after 24 games, and they are already planning the next season at Eliteserien.
They count 13 consecutive wins at home, including both league and cup games. They also have the best defense to the league with only 20 goals accepted.
Left-back Davíd Kristján Ólafsson (14 games, 1 goal) is suspended, while center-back Kaj Ramsteijn (13 games, 1 goal) will miss due to injury.
Viking FK is unbeaten in their last six games at Eliteserien, with four wins and two draws. They still have hopes for a top-four position.
On Sunday they scored four goals against Valerenga, proving again that they are in good timing. Only negative fact is the away record, where they won just three games.
No absences reported for Viking.
Aalesund showed in the previous Cup games that they are determined for success. Both teams will be more careful in defense tonight as this is a crucial stage for the way to the final.
Unlike the odds, I see a high tense game with a low number of goals.
