Viking FK vs Ranheim (By: Saconex)
Norwegian Cup Semi Final
Viking vs Ranheim
Viking who was new promoted to the top division this season, has impressed everyone. They are placed 5th in the league and tonight they are playing to reach the Final of the Cup. They lost the last league match by 4-2 vs Kristiansund (6), but at home they havent lost since leaders Molde (1) visited them in August (5-1-0). Expect the hosts to be on fire from start here, they are considered as big favourites of a reason.
Ranheim are placed in the bottom of the league and with 4 rounds left they will need to fight hard to stay in the league. This match is pretty much a bonus for them, because I guess their main priority is to avoid relegation. They are coming from losing 4-2 vs another relegation contender, Tromso (12), in the league last time out.
* This match ended 2-2 in the league, the reverse fixture ended with a 5-2 Ranheim win
* Viking won the Cup last time in 2001, Ranhem have never reached the Final
This match should give us goals I think, probably both ways. Altough Viking is big favourites overall, I dont find any value in betting on them to win this (odds at 1.53). Its a cup match and anything can happen imo, and although Viking doesn’t seem to have any problems finding the net lately, I expect the guests to get their chances as well. Viking are often very attacking minded at home so chances on counters will come. I think we once again can expect a entertaining match between these two and over 3 goals looks like the best bet imo.
