Comment: Time for the Norwegian Cup Final, Cupfinalen 2019. The Kings cup is very prestigious in Norway. This time it was down to a showdown between two sides from the Rogaland county. The temperature was around the freezing point, but the supporters of both teams did everything they could to make a fantastic atmosphere. Both sets of fans had also done their job with the tifos and that made a great intro to the match. Ullevaal Stadion was really rocking before kick-off!

But neither side could score and 0-0 at half-time. Cupfinalen 2019 was still up for grabs! After the break Viking was awarded an early penalty. Captain Zlatko Tripic made no mistake from the spot-kick and Viking went ahead.
