Matthías Vilhjálmsson gave Vålerenga the lead, but burned a penalty before Viking equalized to 1-1. Then Deyver Vega appeared and secured a 2-1 victory to Vålerenga.
Dag-Eilev Fagermo went on a crushing 1-4 defeat to old club Odd on Wednesday, but even after several big mistakes by the club’s young players, the Vålerenga boss gave confidence to another youngster for the home game against Viking in the Elite series on football Saturday.
19-year-old Osame Sahraoui showed up on several occasions, but it was 33-year-old Vilhjálmsson who gave Vålerenga the lead with a simple touch on a dead ball.
For the third game in a row, Viking was lying down and for the fourth time Vålerenga took the lead this season. The Stavanger team chased their first win of the season, but failed to test Vålerenga’s keeper Kristoffer Klaesson, who had several blunders against Odd last.
Only 20 minutes before the end, Viking accounted for today’s attack when Ylldren Ibrahimaj was finally able to set up an equalizer on the open goal after Vålerenga burned a seemingly strictly sentenced penalty.
Nevertheless, Vålerenga got all three points after substitutes Deyver Vega secured the victory just before the end.
