We are rolling on and still on top of the league
Viking 3 - 0 Vålerenga
The game started off with Vålerenga keeper Lars Hirschfeld being unlucky after 11 minutes. Viking striker Henri Anier fired away a shot. It hit the post and bounced off Hirschfeld's back and into the goal. After 34 minutes, Trond Olsen sent away a great cross to Henri Anier, who put the ball wonderfully behind the net.
Yann-Erik de Lanlay finished it all off after 83 minutes after a crosser from Trond Erik Bertelsen.
Bertelsen was named MotM after a great match on the left-back.
Rosenborg 0 - 2 Viking
A quite boring first half ended 0-0. There were almost no shots on target throughout the match. However, in the 60th minute, Henri Anier scores a cracker from 20m and right in the top corner to make it 1-0 to Viking. And 6 minutes before full time, Veton Berisha finished off a great counter-attack to give Viking a 2-0 victory.
Henri Anier was named MotM after his stunning goal, which also was named as Goal of the Week.
Molde 2 - 2 Viking
This was a match that Molde completely dominated, and Viking were lucky to get a point from the match.
Viking scored the first goal in the match after 11 minutes. Kerim Frei put the ball in the back of the net from 7m out. This was the only thing that happened in the first half.
In the second half, it took Molde's Zlatko Tripic four minutes to equalize. Twelve minutes later Molde went 2 - 1 up after a great midfield run from Davy Claude Angan. Viking got their undeserved equalizer after 74 minutes, with a Yann-Erik de Lanlay goal. Magne Hoseth was sent off after a horrible two-footed tackle after 84 minutes, but Viking didn't manage to get a winning goal.
Angan was named MotM after his magnificent goal.
Viking 1 - 0 Strømsgodset
This was a match with very few chances, and the winning goal was scored after 88 minutes. Yann-Erik de Lanlay but the ball past the keeper via the post.
Johan Lædre Bjørdal was named MotM after great defensive work for Viking.
We're still on top, but still only on goal difference. Hopefully that will change soon.
