Bet of the Day
Malmö have been strong at home this season and need another 3 points against Sirius. They have failed to keep a clean sheet all season though so will likely need at least two goals to secure all 3 points. Both Viking and Strømsgodset are two attack minded sides who are capable of scoring goals but concede plenty also. We should see a minimum of three goals here.
