Viking face a goal-keeping injury crisis ahead of Europa League clash with Aberdeen. First goalkeeper Arild Ostbo was taken off injured after only 27 minutes of Viking’s 5-3 away defeat of Kristiansund on Saturday. Summer signing Michael Crowe, secured as third choice keeper by Viking, came off the bench for his club debut. It was the first senior competitive game time for Crowe in 20 months. Second choice keeper Iven Austbo is currently injured and faces a battle to be fit to face Aberdeen. Viking have also lost highly rated left-back Adrian Pereira having sold him to Greek side PAOK at the weekend. The Norwegian U21 international had started every game for Viking this season before that transfer to Greece. Aberdeen also suffered three postponements due to corornavirus protocol. Following 19 days without football the Dons have racked up five consecutive wins since a return to action. Now they aims to extend that winning streak by overcoming Viking in Norway. Reward for the winner in the one legged second qualifying round tie in Stavanger is an away trip to Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon next Thursday.
