FCSB vs Viking Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (18/08/2022)

FCSB will face Viking in one of the final games of the Europa Conference League qualifications on Thursday.

FCSB vs Viking: Top Free Betting Tips

FCSB should have an easy task against a team like Viking but the visitors already surprised us on multiple occasions. Here are our predictions for this game.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

There is an obvious difference in class between these two teams and FCSB are the big favorite to win this game. We expect them to win this but we do not expect to see many goals. The team did not score a lot of goals overall in the Europa Conference League qualifications to date. In Viking's case, the team has not yet scored a goal in an away game and they generally focus on defense when they are on the road.

Match Result – FCSB

FCSB should have no issues to win this game as Viking are a level below them overall in every aspect of the game. Viking played two games on the road in the ECL against weaker opponents than FCSB and they did not win either of them while not even scoring a single goal. FCSB are a strong host and we saw that in both their games, which they won. We think that this match will have a result like 1:0 or 2:0 max.

Both Teams To Score – No

As mentioned above, Viking are not a high-scoring team while FCSB have a solid defense that should be able to withstand for 90 minutes. FCSB are an incredible home team and they rarely lose games. It is true that they conceded twice against Saburtalo Tbilisi in their first ECL game but that was a completely different type of game and they also scored four times then. Viking have real struggles on the road and if they were unable to beat teams like Sligo Rovers, we do not expect them to score here.

FCSB vs Viking: Form, Recent Games, and News

FCSB Preview

FCSB have always been one of the top teams in Romania and they even won the title two years ago. Last season, they finished in 2nd place and were quite behind in points from Cluj. Overall, the team has one of the best attacks in the league but their defense often concedes more than they would want. Overall, they should go through Viking with ease with a big win at home.

Viking Preview

Viking have been one of the top teams in Norway over the past few seasons and they have actually been quite close to winning the title. Last season, they finished in 3rd place and generally had some impressive stats. The team had a goal difference of 60:47 in 30 games, so they can generally score goals on a domestic level but they have not been perfect in the ECL, especially on the road.
