Viking FK realistically needs a miracle to advance to the next stage of the Europa Conference League third qualifying round against Sligo Rovers.
In the initial game in Norway, the Irish team was defeated and for the visitors to turn the tie around, they had to completely capitulate.

Sligo Rovers vs Viking FK Tips and Prediction
Sligo Rovers would have been hoping to build on their two illustrious triumphs against Motherwell in the previous round during the later stages of qualification.
However, the visitors found themselves four goals down within an hour thanks to two goals conceded in the first eight minutes in Norway, which set the stage for this match to turn into a nightmare.
Even if John Russell’s team scored a consolation goal from the penalty spot late on, it will be acknowledged that this match is likely already finished.
That is not to say, though, that Sligo Rovers won’t want to go on a high note after giving their fans some priceless experiences over the past few weeks.
Russell will also want to build on the weekend’s comeback victory over Bohemians, which kept the team in fifth place in the League of Ireland Premier Division. In the early rounds of this competition, Viking, which hasn’t won a league championship since 2018, surprised everyone because it was initially anticipated that they would lose to Sparta Prague.
They did, however, demonstrate last week that they possess the talent to qualify for the group stages and guarantee that few opponents would like to play them both at home and away.
Their domestic campaign has not gone as planned; after a 2-2 tie at home to Sandefjord, who are currently in eighth place, the team is now in fifth place and 13 points behind leaders Molde.
However, keeping them in this competition might improve Viking’s standing; they may already be planning to play FC DAC 1904 or FCSB in the playoff round.
Even while everyone connected to Sligo Rovers may be content with attaining some respectability, the players will be motivated to go all out for the win. But Viking has already demonstrated its superior class, and we anticipate seeing more of it on Thursday.
