The next of the dwarfs – Norway. From international standpoint, nothing new, nothing memorable, nothing impressive. Different from home perspective, though. One thing was the decline of best Norwegian club of the first half of the 1970s: Viking (Stavanger).
A place above, worth a spot in the EUFA Cup as well, ended IK Start (Kristiansand).
Second finished FK Bodo/Glimt – one of their best seasons so far, for to this moment the club won only one Cup. Real contenders they were not, though – they lagged 8 points behind the champions.
Which were familiar by now, for they won the title in 1976 as well – Lillestrom SK. 'The Canaries' reigned supreme, confidently winning their 3rd title. They lost only 2 games and received 11 goals during the season. That is one goal every second match on average, quite a defense even for a weak league. And this was not all.
The top two clubs met at the Cup final. It was fine – the best clubs on top of everybody else. Both clubs were eager contenders, for their trophy shelves were quite empty – Lillestrom had 2 titles to their credit, Bodo/Glimt even less – only one Cup from 1975.
